Issue with Feeder not pulling tape covers back | 7 February, 2020

I am running a Sasmsung CP40-LV machine (which itself works fine). However, the thing holding up production is that I am often experiencing tape cover not being pulled back by the feeders.

What part of the feeder is most likely to cause this? I have access to new cogs, would replacing the cogs on these feeders fix the issue? Else, what should I be looking at to fix it?

Thanks

Does this only happen with certain feeders or certain components? We have a few regularly used components that experience the same problem ( Philips SMT machinery ) where the cover tape is just too sticky. Experience taught us which components will cause this problem so the operator hangs a weight on the cover tape to aid correct peel back. This works fine and as long as the operator periodically raises the weight up the tape it runs flawlessly.

If you can narrow the problem down to either feeder or component it would be helpful in finding an answer to suit
