The purpose of the Brush Tamp is to make sure the sleeve label is down in the correct position before heat is applied. Standard Brush Tamps typically use a soft, flexible material that will not mark or damage the sleeve. This soft material (cord) requires replacement after a certain amount of use. So, most designs in production today require the cord to be replaced while the line is down.
Tripack’s new Brush Tamp design has a quick-change shaft that allows this cord replacement to be done offline.
