QSP-2 Head Nozzle Runout Exceeded. Need Help Please! | 20 December, 2017

Hello there, I work at Redcom Laboratories in Victor NY. I'm a student and new to being a machine repair technician. I'm having some bother with one of our TYCO QUAD QSP-2 machines. I keep getting the errors:

"WARNING: Head#2 Nozzle RUNOUT=27.1 mils, exceeds 6.5 mils spec."

"WARNING: Head#3 Nozzle RUNOUT=7.0 mils, exceeds 6.5 mils spec."

"WARNING: Head#2 Nozzle RUNOUT=26.9 mils, exceeds 6.5 mils spec."

"WARNING: Head#2 Nozzle RUNOUT=6.9 mils, exceeds 6.5 mils spec."

Does anyone know how to repair this? Furthermore is anyone able to explain what may cause this in the first place and what exactly it means so I don't have to guess?

Thank You Everyone!

The z-rod bellows on head 2 and head 3 are slightly bent. The machine will show you this error if the runout is over 6.5 mils.

This is usually caused by too much z when picking parts out of a vib or tray feeder.

The machine will probably run. I have used machines with runout as high as 20 mils and they still worked.

If you are very careful...sometimes you can take a z rod and spin it by hand to see where the bend is....and you can then lightly push the opposite direction to get the runout to lower some. I have made a tool for fixing this to make it easier.

good luck.
