The pad locates in front of the peel-off plate. It picks up a label while it is being printed. Powered by a rotary cylinder, the pad pivots into position by at most 180° in horizontal direction. The label is transferred to a product by a stroke cylinder. The length of the stroke cylinder defines the maximum distance of a product to the peel-off plate.
Labels are precisely tamped on plane surfaces. Recessed levels are possible as well.
Tamp-on pad, providing a damping layer
When applying labels to hard surfaces, the noise level is reduced. It benefits also in cases of rough structures or little unevenness.
Tamp-on pad, providing a label stop
It enables small labels be applied exactly on spot to a product.
It benefits when labels have to be applied to sensitive surfaces or products in motion. Labels are blown on by a blast of air. Stroke cylinder adjustment enables bridging distances of 5 to 10 mm to the surface of a product.
