QC to MER/Production Passdown - TAZ Pro, Multiple Part #s, Aero Idler Levers
Closed, ResolvedPublic


PP-FP0135, Mirrored Aero Idler Lever
PP-FP0162, Standard Aero Idler Lever
Our supplier for this part, E3D, appears to have accidentally mixed some PP-FP0162's into bags of PP-FP0135's. Inspecting one bag of 500 PP-FP0135's, we found one PP-FP0162 mixed in.
It has been reported by MER that another bag also had this issue.
Due to this issue, and also the parts being nearly identical and easily mixed up on the assembly line, assemblers will need to know how to differentiate between the two.
Refer to the photos to see the difference between the pin that holds the bearing in place. The end of the pin is being referred to as a "Nub" in the photos.

One of each unit is being held for referencing/training in QC.

A recent shipment of the PP-FP0135's had a white paint mark consistently in the same spot( a non-visible area once assembled). It looks like the supplier is adding this mark to differentiate the PP-FP0135 from the PP-FP0162.

On some units the paint is speckled on visible areas. It comes off pretty easily by finger or paper towel, so it shouldn't be an issue, I just wanted to make sure the issue is communicated to everyone.

Which part were the paint identifiers on? FP0135 or FP0162?

The white paint dots are on the PP-FP0135's.
