Tharo Systems’ PA1200DT Dual Tamp Label Printer/Applicator can print and apply labels to 2 adjacent carton/product surfaces--front and side, front and top, or a simple front application.
By Gretchen Edelbrock, Products Editor
The PA1200DT is currently available using the Tharo H-Series thermal/thermal transfer printers with print resolutions of 203 or 300 dpi. Labels can be as large as 4.4-in. x 8.0-in.
After a label is printed, it is stripped from the liner and held by suction on the tamp applicator pad. The tamp pad is mounted on a heavy-duty swing arm that extends over a conveyor and tamps the label to the front surface of the carton. When the tamp pad returns to its starting position, it collects another printed label and applies it to the side or top of the carton. The PA1200DT can also be set up to apply labels to a single surface or as a corner wrap.
