Cross stage contamination (during any of the processes that parts go through, the parts are not properly transitioned, or they maintain elements from the last station that contaminate the next).
This usually means that the geometry of the part is not optimized, and the part density is too high.
Make sure to configure the parts for maximum cleaning and rinse coverage first. If this is unsuccessful, allow sufficient time for adequate rinse and drainage between stages.
