Industry: Consumer Products
Problem: Ink Jet cartridges plugging prematurely.
Solution: Cartridges for ink jet printing were plugging before the ink was consumed. Rejects and returned product were increasing. Disassembly and microscopic evaluation of the cartridge components revealed contaminant fibers collecting on the cartridge filter screens. Characterizing the fibers aided in determining the source. The ink manufacturer was able to make adjustment to the ink processing and eliminate the problem.
