Sometimes, those clips are adjustable, and you can slide it up to cover the part for you.

Otherwise, in the past, I've always just put in a new clip when this sort of issue cropped up.

Cheers, ..rob

On top of the feeder should be a small cover thats adjustable you need to unscrewed a little and move it forward to the pick up area this should give you enough space to cover the other component

another thing you can try is check if all the feeders are line up correctly tm8 have 16 positions so try to place 8 reels and verify if all lineup ok if not you need to adjust them with the teddy bear and each side of the feeder, for that you should have a small heart shape tool that you use on the teddy bear eyes to adjust the alignment of all the feeders.

Hi as said clip and and adjustment was not in cause

if you look picture part was right at the good place so tape adjustment was good for all the 16 tape

and have also replace all the 16 clip whit same result

i have service any mydata feeder before but that one was really strange it have 0.7mm to long some were but not able to find were ,may last resort was CNC machine the front block for remove the 0.7mm ..

The separation clip part number for a TM8 and a TM8C are different. The TM8FC clip is longer so it will cover the component before the one being picked.
