Testing the flow rate


This test is to measure the flow rate in the Z310 (DESIGNmate Mx). It should be used as a diagnostic
tool to determine if the Print Head is receiving enough binder. Not enough binder flow can cause Error
1006. The most common causes (out of binder, bad print head, air in fluid line, clogged binder cap
etc..), should be explored first. The flow rate test is designed to test whether the system may have a
kinked or blocked fluid line, or a clogged binder filter.
There are many ways to measure a flow rate and every way can result in different values. It is VERY
IMPORTANT to follow this procedure closely otherwise the flow rate numbers will not match correctly.

Prerequisite:

There must be some binder in the binder bottle

Test Procedure:
1. SET UP: From ZPrint, choose Unpark from the service menu (this will move the carriage away
from the service station, and prevent it from auto parking when you close the top cover.
IF YOU DONT HAVE ACCESS TO ZPRINT OR COMMUNICATION WITH THE PRINTER:
The safest option is to power down the printer and manually move the carriage to the front,
right side of the deck.
2.
3.
4.
5.

CHECK: Make sure there is some binder in the bottle.


INSERT: Clamp the test tubing near the bottom and insert the fitting onto the septum
PRIME LINE: Carefully open the clamp to allow the test tubing to fill with binder
Dangle the tubing (still clamped) outside of the machine; using a shim (syringe plunger) close
the cover making sure the seal doesnt compress the testing tube.
6. Hold the tubing so the middle of the syringe is approximately the level of the deck (down far
enough that all the slack is taken out of the tubing)
7. TEST: Release the clamp and let the binder drip into the collection syringe. Re-clamp the tube
at 30 SECONDS.
8. Record and compare the amount of binder collected in the syringe (reading ml) to the chart.

The flow rate test is designed to test whether the system may have a kinked or
blocked fluid line, or a clogged binder filter. If you find a restriction in the flow
and feel that it may be caused by bacteria build-up in the fluid line or filter, it
will be necessary to follow the clean out procedure 08799 to make sure the
bacteria is bleached before returning the machine to operation.
9. Press OK to re-park the carriage.
