Summary

As production capacities and tile formats increase in size and firing, time cycles continue to shrink and production faults become critical at alarming rates. Tight production practices and observations are explored to eliminate typical faults yielding pinholes, blisters, wedging, warping, peeling, and lunetta (half moons).
