Adjusting the Spray Pattern
Follow these steps to establish the correct fluid flow and air flow: 1. Turn the fluid adjustment knob (21) counterclockwise until no restriction of the trigger movement is felt, then turn out another half turn. When the knob is turned far enough, the trigger should be able to touch the gun handle when the gun is triggered. 25

WARNING
PRESSURIZED EQUIPMENT HAZARD To avoid injury, never open the fluid adjustment knob (21) beyond the one half turn indicated in Adjusting the Spray Pattern. If the red band on the knob stem (21) is visible, the knob is not adjusted correctly and could result in serious injury. Repeat steps in Adjusting the Spray Pattern.

7. For HVLP only, to measure the air cap atomizing pressures, use the accessory aircap verification kit. NOTES: D If the fluid adjustment knob is turned in clockwise all the way the gun will emit only air. D For maximum transfer efficiency, always use the lowest air setting needed to achieve the desired finish. D If available, use the fluid manufacturer’s recommendations for this gun model to set the air line pressure. D For Compliant guns, to maintain compliant operation (TE equal to HVLP) the gun inlet pressure must not exceed 29 psi. D For HVLP guns, at 29 psi (200 kPa, 2.0 bar) gun inlet air pressure, the pressure at the aircap will be 10 psi (70 kPa, 0.7 bar). D For HVLP guns, local laws may limit the maximum automatic air pressure to 10 psi (70 kPa, 0.7 bar) at the air cap for HVLP compliance. The accessory Air Cap Verification Kit 16231 is available to measure the atomizing pressure at the air cap.

4. Trigger the gun and adjust the gun inlet pressure, turning the needle valve at the gun air inlet: HVLP, Compliant 29 psi Airspray 50psi

5. Spray a test pattern to evaluate fluid flow and atomization. 6. To reach the desired pattern width, fluid flow rate, and finish, make the following adjustments: . For a narrower pattern (25), turn the pattern adjustment valve clockwise. To reduce the fluid flow, turn the fluid adjustment valve (21) clockwise to limit the trigger travel or replace the nozzle with a smaller orifice. To improve atomization, reduce the fluid flow rate. Increasing the air pressure can improve atomization but may result in poor Transfer Efficiency (TE) or non–compliant operation.

Correct fan pattern

Follow all Setup procedures, starting on page 6. Hang some 3M masking paper. Hold spray gun with Air Cap perpendicular and 8 in. from masking paper. Spray for two seconds and check what you get for fan pattern outline on the paper. See troubleshooting chart for how to adjust/service spray gun to correct Fan Pattern defects.

PROBLEM Fluttering or spitting spray

CAUSE AND SOLUTION Loose or damaged fluid tip/seat (Tighten or replace). Material level too low in cup (Refill cup) Gun cup tilted too far over or upside down while spraying (Purge Air out of PPS cup). PPS 200–micron strainer too fine for mix (Use PPS 300 micron strainer or thin/reduce mix). Partial obstruction in fluid passage (Flush with solvent). Dry or loose fluid needle packing nut (Lubricate or tighten).

Pattern is curved.

Air Cap or Fluid Tip Defective. Determine if defect is in the Air Cap or Fluid Tip. Rotate Air Cap one–half turn and spray another test pattern. If defect is inverted/reverse of previous fan pattern, then defect is in the Air Cap. Clean air Cap. If defect is not inverted/reverse of previous Fan Pattern, defect is in the Fluid Tip. Check Fluid Tip for damage or partial blockage with dried material. Check Fluid Needle Tip for damage. Replace as necessary.

Pattern is off–set or heavy on one end.

One or more Air Horn Holes Plugged (Clean Air Cap) Fluid Needle Tip Damaged (Replace Fluid Needle Tip) Fluid Nozzle Damaged or partially blocked.(Clean and or replace Fluid Nozzle)

Pattern is heavy in the center.

Air Pressure too low (Increase Air Pressure). Fan Pattern set too narrow (Open Fan Pattern). Material is too thick (Reduce/Thin the Mix).

Pattern is split.

Air Pressure too high (Reduce Air Pressure). Fan Pattern set wide open (Close down Fan Pattern).

16

PROBLEM Starving Fan Pattern. Fan pattern begins to narrow down.

SOLUTION PPS liner bottomed out on top of strainer or collapsed around strainer, blocking flow (Disconnect air, with PPS cup below gun, pull trigger to re–open liner, re–connect air and spray mix without purging air from liner). PPS 200–micron strainer too fine for mix (Use PPS 300 micron strainer or thin/ reduce mix). Air supply pressure drops due to air supply defects such as other air tools being used draws down system pressure & CFM flow.

Will not spray.

Not enough flow/air pressure at gun (Check air supply source and hose). Fluid needle not open enough (Open fluid needle more). Mix is too thick for fluid tip size (Change to larger size).

Fluid leaking/dripping from PPS cup.

PPS cup lid loose (Tighten PPS Locking Collar). Crack in PPS Lid or Liner (Replace). PPS lid spout not fully engaged with PPS Adapter.

Fluid leaking/dripping from gun.

Check for missing or damaged O–ring (34) at base of Fluid Nozzle on the Fluid/Adapter Housing Fluid needle packing nut too tight or binding (Loosen nut or lubricate needle shaft). Needle tip damaged (Replace). Fluid Nozzle nicked or damaged (Replace). Mix residue dried in gun (Clean & Lube gun).

Excessive overspray.

Too much air pressure (Reduce air pressure). Gun too far from work surface (Move in and keep the fan pattern perpendicular to the surface to be sprayed).

Lubricate the outside of the new air valve assembly (26) and place it on the fluid needle (13), against the nut (B). See Fig. 29. This helps align the entrance of the air valve stem into the inside diameter of the u-cup (16) without damaging the u-cup lip. 5. Install the fluid needle (13) and the air valve assembly (26) into the back of the gun. 7. Replace and Install a new needle spring (23). Install fluid adjustment knob (21). 8. Install the trigger (10), pivot pin (17), wave washer (18), and screw (11). Torque the screw to 20–30 in-lb (2.3–3.4 NSm). 9. To avoid galling of the fluid nozzle in the spray housing (2a) apply a thin film of lubricant to the back surface of the nozzle taper where it seats and also to the nozzle threads. Trigger the gun while you install the fluid nozzle (12) with the gun tool (28). Tighten the nozzle securely to 40 in-lb (4.5 NSm) to obtain a good seal. Do not over torque. 10. Tighten the hex nut (9) securely to 125–135 in-lb (14–15 NSm). 11. Install the pattern adjustment valve assembly (25). Torque the nut (25a) to 125–135 in-lb (14–15 NSm). 12. To tighten the packing screw (8), turn the screw in until it touches the fluid packings (5), then tighten one full turn to pre-set the packings. Loosen the screw, then turn it in until it touches the packings again. Tighten the screw 1/12 turn more (equal to half the distance between points on the hex head). 13. Trigger the gun to test the needle movement. If the needle does not return after the trigger is released or is slow in returning, loosen the packing screw (8) until the needle returns freely. 14. Install the air cap (14) and air cap retaining ring (15). Hand-tighten the ring. 15. Make sure the gun fluid packings are sealing properly by spraying solvent at low pressure before fully pressurizing the gun with the fluid to be sprayed. If the fluid packings leak, tighten the packing screw (8) slightly and retest until the packings and fluid needle seal completely.

3m in 2006

...3M in 2006 Prior to reading the 3M case, I was unaware of this historic corporation that dominates a wide range of markets today. I have heard and purchased products such as Post-it Note, Scotch Tape, and Scotch-Brite; however, I did not know all these products and many more belong to 3M Company. 3M was initiated in 1902 by five businessmen in Minnesota and its first product was the development of sandpaper. William McKnight was the leading figure and CEO of 3M who revolutionized the company and led it to its initial success. He and other prominent figures at that time evolved the company culture into a unique innovative organization. 3M was the first company to utilize various strategies that differentiated them from other organizations at the time. For instance, they applied product diversification, which was done by creating brand extensions, production modifications, or creating brand new products. A large number of ground-breaking products were created by, “leveraging existing technology and applying it to new areas”. (p. C437) This strategy was not common in other industries during that time period. This unique culture assisted 3M by allowing the company to reach out to markets their competitors could not have access too. This advantage gave 3M the opportunity to acquire a wide range of new consumers across different market sectors. It placed them as the top dog in supplying daily essentials for individuals, families, manufacturers, and suppliers. Another......

Why, if at all, does 3M, known as a ‘hothouse’ of innovation, need to regain its historic closeness to the customer? - The big winners are those who match new, marketable ideas with customers before anyone else can. It takes flexibility and creativity and willingness to risk. - In 1902, 3M was founded as Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing by five northern Minnesota entrepreneurs. - Their idea was to extract a mineral from shores of Lake Superior. The partners believed the mineral was corundum, an ideal substitute for garnet, the mineral abrasive found in grinding wheels used by furniture makers. - Each partner put in $1000 and started their venture in Two Harbours hoping to find the mineral and possibly gold. - The initial idea of incorporated first, investigated later. The company sold shares and made plans to start mining before they were even certain they had customers. - When Hermon Cable travelled to Chicago and Deitroit to get the mineral tested with potential customers to find a “fairy satisfactory” results. However, he encouraged the other four partners to go on with the project. - Two years after the founding of the company, 3M sold the first batch of minerals.

...3M has been known for decades as an entrepreneurial company that peruses growth through innovation. It generates a quarter of its annual revenues from products less than 5 years old. Long before “reinvention” became a buzzword of American business, 3M already had made change a central part of its corporate culture [1]. Many say the company’s success over the years is linked to its ability to change as 3M, its products and the world marketplace evolves. Once 3M top management has long felt that the 3M innovation process was being focus on incremental improvements to existing product lines. They urgently wanted to improve matters, and wanted especially to improve 3M's ability to respond to the "unarticulated needs" of customers by providing breakthroughs and services. Among many methods of innovation that the 3M used to improve their capability of making breakthroughs, The Lead User process offered a promising solution to that problem. Von Hipple (1999) marks that the Lead User market research method is built around the idea that the richest understanding of new product and service needs is held by just a few "Lead Users." They can be identified and drawn into a process of joint development of new product or service concepts with manufacturer personnel. In this research after a general description of innovation definition, the 3M Company is introduced as the research case study.

3m Corporation

...Abstract . 3M Corporation History of the 3M Corporation What started off as a small company in the Lake Superior Town of Two Harbors, Minnesota in the year 1902 – 3M has grown into a worldwide corporation with companies in over 60 countries. Things seemed bright in June 1902, when Two Harbors attorney John Dwan drew up articles of incorporation and added his $1,000 to that of other charter board members, meat market owner Hermon Cable, Dr. J. Danley Budd, the city’s leading physician, and Duluth and Iron Range Railroad executives William McGonagle and Henry Bryan (3M Corporation, 2015). The five men set out looking for the next new product. They wanted to mine a certain type of mineral deposit (Corundum) to use as an adhesive for grinding-wheels. Corundum was in demand as the premier abrasive for grinding wheels, sandpaper and other items to polish, shape, sharpen and decorate items produced by America’s increasingly industrialized economy. This new source of corundum was greeted jubilantly; the only other North American source was in Ontario. The problem – one that surfaced after the company had incurred a large start-up debt – was that the corundum was not there on Lake Superior’s Minnesota north shore. What was there was anorthosite, which is useless as an abrasive (Bishop, 2005). So within a couple of years of its founding, 3M had tons of mineral for sale, no customers and was all but bankrupt. When mining turned out to be of little use and a failed attempt with......
