QuickTamp Applicator - fast and friendly Logistics Labeling System.
Fast and friendly Logistics Labeling System for labeling shipping labels on top of boxes in various heights.
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 QuickTamp - the fast and friendly Logistics Labeling System.
The fast and flexible applicator is based on Evolabels 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 to its target and applies the label with high precision. A height measuring sensor simplifies installation and ensure applying the label at the right position, even if the height of the package changes randomly and the line speed is up to 80 m/min.
Logistic Center installation
Evolabel T63 QuickTamp applicators at a logistics center in The Netherlands applies shipping labels from above on boxes. Four parallel production lines, each with a capacity of 1500 packs/hour are equipped with two QuickTamp system per line (duty standby).

QuickTamp Applicator Technical Specifications
The Evolabel QuickTamp G2 applicator is developed with ease of use, reliability, and safety in focus. It is fully automatic and no daily adjustments or calibrations are required. The applicator works with a linear motion and is specially designed for print and apply applications with high demands on speed and precision. It is primarily designed for top labeling, but may also be used for side labeling.
The tamping rod of carbon fiber together with the drive roller configuration equipped with traction control and automatic wear monitoring, ensure high performance throughout the lifetime of the applicator.
The QuickTamp G2 is designed to use the Evolabel patented applicator pad range for optimal label handling. This is obtained by creating vacuum locally in the pad through feeding of compressed air from the applicator. Vacuum is only present when the applicator is in print position. During the apply, the high speed of the QuickTamp G2 makes it possible to turn off the use of vacuum.
The QuickTamp G2 can be mounted on all Evolabel printers and is easily mounted with two screws, a tube for compressed air, and an eApplicator cable for the electronic interface.
The applicator is controlled by the printer, normally by using the signal from an external photo sensor as a direct input to detect the product to be labeled. For information about the printers, we refer to the manual Installation, Maintenance & Service D43/T43/T63.
Together with the custom designed Evolabel software, the QuickTamp G2 may be equipped with a height sensor to handle packages of different heights in the same batch, yet labeling in a continuous and accurate flow. It may usefully also be equipped with a motorized stand to control label positions in a further dimension and to easily adjust to conveyors and other peripherals.
