e-Commerce drives in-line labeling requirements to higher levels and leading providers of warehouse and distribution solutions identify traditional print and apply systems as bottlenecks. Evolabel eliminates that bottleneck with the new QuickTamp solution.
The fast and flexible label printer applicator is based on Evolabel’s unique Tactile apply solution, where the movement constantly is monitored and controlled, making the system totally safe for any user or object accidentally getting in its way. If the movement is restricted, the system will immediately stop and alert with an alarm or warning.
Driven by a pulse encoder controlled stepper motor, the carbon fiber shaft holding the label firmly with a patented 3D printed applicator pad, moves quickly until it finds its target and applies the label with high precision from a distance of up to 3.2 feet. The lightweight solution allows high acceleration and apply speed of up to 300 fpm. This enables moving the label from the printer to the package only holding it by the force of the air resistance. Thus, the moving part is both free from electrical cabling and free from air tubes that would wear over time, resulting in more uptime and better economy.
A height measuring sensor simplifies installation and ensures that the label is being applied at the right position, even if the height of the package changes randomly and the line speed is up to 260 fpm. Alternatively, the height information can be transferred to the printer together with the label data and layout.
