This tamp type label applicator is foot pedal powered. It applies labels to flat and slightly curved surfaces.
The Footpath is our newest label applicator model. When we set out to design the Footpath, our vision was to create a human powered label applicator that would rival the speed and accuracy of semi automatic motorized machines. The machine we have produced has certainly met these requirements. The pedal powered Footpath uses a robust chain and sprocket drive to advance labels with speed and low user fatigue. The tamp applicator mechanism is easy to operate and applies labels with consistent accuracy.
This human powered machine is great choice for anyone interested in a durable easy to use label applicator. It eliminates the need for an air compressor offers a safe, quiet alternative to other applicators on the market.
