Fuji's Auto Head Cleaner cleans heads, checks cleaning results, performs airflow and pressure inspections to ensure stable production. Using the Auto Head Cleaner, cleaning time is reduced from 26 min to 8 min. Anyone can thoroughly clean heads regardless of the operator level, eliminating the need for skilled labor.

Performing the appropriate maintenance is key to maintaining high quality. The auto header cleaner will improve the stability of production lines and reduce the error stops that lower operating efficiency.

The automation of offline set up and maintenance achieves a validated and traceable system essential for smart factory standards. Through the integration of Fuji's Automation Tools factories benefit from significant long-term cost savings.
