Strapping Tools

Choosing the right strapping tools will make your strapping job much easier and will improve the stability of your bundle or load. They range from hand-held manual tools to battery-powered and pneumatic tools, with or without the use of seals. Manual tools are ideal for flat objects and good with small surfaces. The advantage of battery-powered or pnewumatically powered tools is faster and more efficient strapping, with uniformly tensioned straps.

Strapping machines can be used in place of hand-held tools when you have a large number of packages or lodas to strap. They come in automatic and semi-automatic varieties and eliminate the need to strap by hand, saving a lot of time and effort. Refer to the Machinery section for further information on strapping machines.

Tensioner

Tightens the strapping. Typically used on their own with plastic or wire buckles for small bundling jobs, or in combination with a sealer and seals for bigger loads.

Sealer

Tightens the strapping. Typically used on their own with plastic or wire buckles for small bundling jobs, or in combination with a sealer and seals for bigger loads.

 

Combination Tool

Performs both tensioning and sealing tasks in the one tool. They are for slightly larger jobs where a hand-held strapping tool can still be used. Available in manual, battery-powered or pneumatic formats.

Friction Welding Tool

Used with polypropylene or polyester strapping, without the need for metal seals. The tool grips the straps by means of serrated plates and vibrates them, causing sufficient heat to be generated enabling the two strap surfaces to be fused together
