The Dual Action Tamp (DAT) module is designed to allow for greater flexibility in labeling your cases and pallets. It can be configured for a single side, single leading/trailing or both side and adjacent leading/trailing panel labeling. The DAT module accommodates a wide range of label sizes.
Paragon Dual Action Tamp applicator
This applicator module has both a swing tamp and a separate straight tamp actuator and operates as follows:
- The operator selects single side panel, single leading/trailing panel, or two panel operation.
- A label is dispensed onto the applicator pad
- The product is detected.
- If selected, the leading panel actuator engages, causing the pad to move into the path of the moving product.
- The pad presses the entire label against the product.
- The actuator retracts allowing the product to continue past the applicator.
- The second label is dispensed onto the pad.
- As the product moves past, the side tamp actuator (if selected) is engaged causing the tamp application module to move forward to apply to the side of the product.
- The “Smart Tamp” logic detects when the side application is made forcing the actuator to the home position, and keeping your product safe from damage.
