What is Pneumatic Troubleshooting?

Pneumatic troubleshooting is the process of finding the cause, or fault, that has created a malfunction in a pneumatically-powered machine. Faults can cause a machine to do many things. For example, the fault could cause the machine to stop, skip a step, or perform a step incorrectly. A symptom is the malfunction you observe caused by a fault. Troubleshooting is one of the most important pneumatic skills a technician must possess, because machine downtime can be very expensive. Faults must be located and corrected quickly so that the machine is operational as soon as possible.
