Repeated stripping of filament :(

Hi everyone, New to the forum, not to Makergears. We run 6 of these machines modified with E3D hotends which are historically pretty reliable, but lately I have been having fits with filament stripping. Same file being printed on multiple printers, and lately they one will start stripping at approxi...
