Pallet Strapping Machines - 2 straps around a pallet in 6 - 8 seconds.*
Pallet strapping machines that place two straps simultaneously around a pallet in 6 seconds enable the strapping of pallets or other unit loads in half the time with half the effort taken by conventional manual methods, and give an immediate 50% cost, time and labour saving, coupled with health and safety benefits for the employee.

Maintenance free – these pallet strapping machines do not require additional expenditure on conveyors as most of them are mobile and can strap anywhere a pallet is located i.e .it is not necessary to use an FLT to take the pallets to a fixed location. They can also strap pallets located on stretch wrap turntables.... and the capital outlay is very small compared with that required for conventional solutions.
*The latest developments include automatic push button indexing in/out of the pallet both for pallets on floor and at conveyor levels, plus the ability to place plastic straps around up to three pallets simultaneously - a system that competes very favourably with the conventional automated pallet strapping systems costing tens of thousands of ponds (but for a fraction of the cost.) They also make excellent back up systems for the automated strapping systems when they break down.
