Hi,

Does you ever encounter static in plastic reel?? For a while when you do a production with our machine the component( mostly resistor and capacitor) stay in the pocket of the reel when the feeder peel off. do you have a trick to stop it?

Thank you

Usually Static in the tape will cause the component to stick to the cover tape as opposed to staying in the pocket. It sounds like you have another problem. But anyway, here is what we do when we "think" we have an ESA problem. We place the components under an ionizer.

Never assume static is static. We recently encountered something similar to what you describe. It turned out to be microscopic threads of glue (PSA from ther cover tape) over the pocket.

Did you check the pick-up alignment?
