Automatic Inline Strapping Machine
The Endra Automatic Strapping machine is unusual insofar as where all other types of automatic Strapping Machine have what is known as a 'strap track' - a channel around which plastic strapping is pre-fed this type of machine has no strap track at all and simply predrapes strapping across a conveyor - either vertically or horizontally - and the pack is driven into the strap by a conveyor. When the back edge of the pack is in line with the points where the strap was originally draped then a small strapping head grips the strap - one on either side - and moves/pulls the strap to the mid point on the rear of the pack - seals the strap and withdraws leaving a length of strap draped across the conveyor ready to receive the next pack. This system has a number of unique features:
Strapping costs are lower due to the fact that smaller sizes and lower grades can be used.
Higher throughput - machine mechanism is fast
- The simplicity of the miniature strapping heads gives excellent reliability.
- Less maintenance cost.
- Labels can be applied automatically to a horizontal strap - an important element to implement tracking and tracing of pallets throughout the downstream transport and logistics chain
- These strapping machines can apply up to 4 horizontal straps
- Typical applications include glass bottles, roof tiles, fruit juice cartons
