Diagraph, An ITW Company: All-electric print/apply labeler uses tamp-blow module
Diagraph’s E-Series Tamp Blow All-Electric Print/Apply Labeler uses no compressed air and has digital controls for precise and accurate label placement and high repeatability.
The E-Tamp Blow labeler is designed for labeling delicate or fragile substrates, such as plastic clamshells, without making any contact from the tamp pad. The tamp pad is extended 1/8- 1/4-in. from the product to be labeled, and then “blows” the label onto it. Can print/apply the labels for top or side application. In addition, the Tamp Blow can also provide label application to products with slight recesses or curvatures.
A high-velocity turbo fan secures the label during application to avoid label skew on products. Uses a double action airflow valve design to almost instantly change vacuum draw into an air blast coming out of the very same porting holes. A brushless DC Servo motor drives the tamp cylinder.
The label size range is 1¼-in. x 1¼-in. to 4-in. x 6-in., and labels are applied at 55 PPM. 3 pivoting tamp pad sizes: 4-in. x 2-in., 4-in. x 4-in., and 4-in. x 6-in. The labeler saves energy and is easy to move from one production line to another. Choose Sato, Zebra, or Datamax print engine. Upgradable. Harsh environment closures available.
