Does anyone have any historical data on vacuum problems with SMT equipment at High Altitudes?

High Altitude issues with Vacuum | 1 November, 2009

I'm at 6800 ft. The only issue I had was related to a PEM nut that was not packaged properly. There was a piece of K@pton tape that was not centered on the part and the tape would stick to the carrier. The vacuum on my machine would not allow me to pull the part from the carrier. The mfg said that another shop at sea level was not having issues with the parts, for what that's worth. All other parts have worked just fine.
