Pallet Strapping Methods:
The options are:
1. Feed the strap round the pallet by hand – into a buckle or strapping tool – tighten the strap and then do the same all over again for each subsequent strap. Sounds easy but in reality is very slow and tiring - and very expensive as time is cost - and not suited for more than 6-7 pallets per day as the risk of back injury is high.
2. The easy low cost way Use a work station WS406TSH that supports a friction weld battery powered strapping tool in a horizontal position making it “Hands Free” The strap is drawn from overhead such that when pulled around the products there is a much reduced tendency for the strap to fall down the load.
2. Another low cost but very efficient option is to use a mobile pallet strapping machine called a Strap Poka, a pallet strapping machine that will allow a number of straps to be applied simultaneously and achieved simply by pushing the unit into the pallet.

3.The high cost option – although cost is relative to thruput – is to use an inline automated strapping machine XF172 available from £35,000 upwards varying with manufacturing origin and quality.
