  • Overcoming the daily challenges of pigmented ink printing Posted last month
    Using pigmented ink in printers, especially ‘white ink’, often presents daily challenges compared to standard dye-based ink printers that result in more downtime. These challenges often include more frequent servicing and daily cleaning.
  • Avoid Labeling Mistakes by Removing Plant Air Posted 10 months ago
    All-electric label applicators revolutionize the packaging industry by eliminating the reliance on plant air, providing precise applicator control for consistent and accurate label placement and ensuring secure label control for various label sizes.
  • Is training production line workers creating a challenge? No problem!  Posted 7 years ago
    Companies rely on engineers or technicians to keep production lines up and running. These job functions are essential to hitting production targets, so it is key that their skill level on equipment is proficient. When making the decision to replace this equipment, the amount of time and money that will have to be invested in training your labor is a major deciding factor.
  • How do I get labels to stick in hot and humid environments? Posted 4 years ago
    Something to be aware of when considering using labeling for product identification in a hot or humid environment is that labels are sensitive to temperature, making facility environment temperature a determining factor in choosing what label material to use on a product.

Diagraph’s All-Electric Label Applicator High Speed Tamp


The HST (High Speed Tamp) is the newest application module in the Diagraph line-up that directly addresses the challenges of the sustainable packaging. It’s unique pivoting design allows for the contouring of irregular surfaces at speeds up to 300 FPM. With fewer tray packs containing sidewall corrugate, applications that were primarily solved with ink jet solutions and standard tamp labeling systems are now in need of a new product identification method. The HST reliability solves this challenge with an All- Electric design and a precisely controlled servo motor design. No more concerns about labels adhering to the shrink surfaces, since the pivoting head and roller ensure the label is not only adhered, but conformed to the product. This greatly improves upon application methods that depend on blow-box technology, which is highly subject to varying distances to the product and concave surfaces. Tamp systems suffer from finding a balance between good surface contact and the danger of getting caught up in the shrink wrap. The HST was designed to solve the real-time challenges of manufacturing companies, who strive for maximum up time and appreciate the difference that good quality makes.  Learn more.
