Strapping machines is a type of equipment used to bundle products or parts together by using a strap or several straps to secure and fasten.
This can be used for shipping purposes and for easier handling when carrying materials. There are many functions when materials are strapped, which means many industries utilize this tool. Construction uses strapping machines when bundling materials together such as bricks, lumber, tiles, etc. since it is much easier to handle and transport. It is common to see cardboard boxes that are strapped together when working at a retail company for shipment purposes. Agricultural strapping machines may utilize this for baling straw, wheat, barely, and rye.
Strapping machines, also known as bundlers, must be supplied with straps and depending on your application, the materials can vary. Straps can be manufactured from almost any kind of material, but it is most common to see steel, plastic, or woven material straps. Steel is the strongest material used for straps, but plastic has become increasingly more popular. It is possible to strap an item vertically or horizontally, while vertically is the most common. Horizontal strapping machines are more likely to be used for reinforcement of primary packaging, while vertical strapping machines are commonly used for primary fastening or packaging of the products.
