You need a strapping tool or a machine to apply straps. Below you can read what different types are available.
In addition to equipment, machines and consumables, we also have a number of tools available to make the strapping process easier, such as strap reels that make it easy to unwind straps.
Are you looking for tailored advice or do you want more information? From the simplest hand tools to large project systems, our experts are ready to provide you with good advice.
When this equipment is used, you will need muscle power for tensioning. A seal or buckle is used for closing the strap.
On first sight, this method of strapping seems simple, but it is usually relatively strenuous and requires a lot of experience to be able to do it well. Also, due to the many actions that the operator has to perform, it may take up to 3 minutes before the strap is properly applied. Often multiple tools are necessary for creating tension and cutting the strap.

This equipment combines all the necessary actions – tensioning, closing and cutting – in one device. They are light-weight and because it is easy to work with them, an operator can make a strap up to six times faster in comparison to hand equipment without a battery. With battery driven hand equipment, it is also possible to build up a higher tension, up to no less than 4,500 N. Also ideal for strapping large packages or for strapping in various locations.
Other advantages are: mobile, no seals required, required tension can be adjusted, ease of use, horizontal AND vertical strapping. The biggest disadvantage is that it is more expensive to buy than a manual strapping tool.
