Strapping Machines and There Uses

Aug 18, 2007
What are strapping machines used for? Strapping machines are used for keeping boxes, packages, and bundles held tight and together. These machines are loaded with a roll of material called strapping that is then dispensed and sealed around a box, a package, a bundle of wood, or other material that needs to beheld together. The machine actually creates a strap that holds the product together, primarily for the purpose of shipping.

Who needs to use them? A variety of industries would require the use of these machines. Workers in commercial printing, food, general packing, lumber, newspaper printing, magazine publishing, and postal fields all need various types of strapping. Shipping books, papers, and merchandise requires a simple and secure method of packaging.

What types of strapping machines are there? There are different speeds and versions of a strapping machine. There are semiautomatic low volume models, semiautomatic moderate volume models, and fully automatic high volume models. There are different styles of the machine as well. There are the pallet strappers, table top strappers, and RQ-8 strappers.

The volume level is the amount that these machines will be used. A small business that has limited shipping or packaging needs might use a semiautomatic low volume strapping machine. Another small to medium company that has a consistent amount of shipping, but not a mass amount of production, shipping or packaging might use the semiautomatic moderate volume strapping machines. Mass production or packaging, like postal offices, shipping companies, or a widely distributed newspaper company would probably use a fully automatic high volume strapper.

Strapping itself is made out of metal, plastic, Ultra band steel replacement material, or other materials. Depending on the items that need to be packaged and shipped, different materials are selected. The plastic straps, usually made of polypropylene, are commonly used for light to medium bundles or packages. Strapping comes in different sizes. They range in size from 3/16 of an inch to 3/4 of an inch, typically.

The pricing on strapping machines and strapping packages varies from model to model and company to company. Any business that has them available for sale will ask for specific information about the needs before submitting a quoted price on anything. There are several handheld devices available for packaging needs. Not everyone who deals with a small amount of shipping needs to purchase a heavy duty strapping machine. Strapping machines are convenient and very useful, particularly in manufacturing, merchandising, and shipping.
