Strapping Tape & accessories
Ties everything: from cardboard boxes to Euro pallets.
Whether it's small cartons that need to be securely sealed; large cartons that are too heavy to remain stable with tape, or highly loaded Euro pallets: strapping is part of the basic equipment in every warehouse.
If you don't ship a lot of goods, you can carry out the laborious task of strapping with a classic collet; meanwhile there are also self-locking plastic seals in which the strap only has to be threaded and pulled taut. Of course, this method is unsuitable for larger numbers of packages or even Euro pallets: It would be far too tedious, and also not reliable enough.
In companies with high shipping volumes, strapping machines are therefore used. These are available in several versions: For parcels as semi-automatic and fully automatic, and for pallets.
Semi-automatic strapping machines
With semi-automatic strapping machines, the PP strapping is manually placed around the package and inserted into openings on the opposite side of the integrated packing table. The strap is then automatically tensioned and virtually welded with heat. This is already considerably quicker and more reliable than any manual method.
Fully automatic strapping machines
For high packing volumes, however, even this is too slow; this is where fully automatic machines come into play. With this type of strapping machine, the package is only inserted into the centre of the packing table; at the push of a button, the strapping is then automatically fed around the box and also sealed. The whole procedure now only takes seconds!
Pallet strapping machines
These machines are only available as semi-automatic machines for obvious reasons: they would otherwise be about 3 metres high and the pallet would have to be driven into them for strapping. Something you'd better not do with unsecured goods! Instead, a long nose is pushed under the pallet, at the end of which the strapping band is pulled out and manually placed over the pallet and the goods. Back at the machine, the strap is inserted there, tensioned with up to 70kg tensile force and sealed. This way, the Euro pallet can safely go on its journey!
