Power Strapping Machines

Available in semi- and fully-automatic strapping models, Signode power strapping machines can be integrated into new or existing production lines to maximize productivity for a variety of applications, including baling, bundling, carton closure and unitizing.

Hand Strapping Tools 

- Combination strapping tools

- Battery-operated strapping tools

- Manual strapping  tensioners and sealers

Combination strapping tools 

Combination tools function as strapping tensioners, sealers and cutters. They save time by eliminating the handling of separate tools. Seal-feed combination strapping tools carry a stack of strapping seals in a magazine for fast, easy loading. Sealless strapping combination tools use friction to weld the strap ends together, creating a secure joint.

Battery-operated strapping tools 

The BXT2 combination strapping tool applies polypropylene strapping or polyester strapping, utilizing friction weld joint technology to join the strap ends. An automatic weld function speeds up cycle time.

Used together, the PT tensioner and BTS sealer are ideal for tensioning and joining strap ends in outdoor or harsh environments.

Manual strapping tensioners and sealers 

Manual strapping hand tools are the most basic form of strap application equipment. They are perfect for operations that either do not have access to power sources or do not require the speed of powered hand strapping tools. Signode manual strapping tensioners provide strap operators with a simple method for tightening strapping around a load. A manual sealer is then used to positively join the tensioned strap ends together, ensuring that loads remain secure during transit, handling and storage.
