Polyester strapping tools

Friction weld tools

The process of strapping (also often referred to as ‘bundling’ or ‘banding’) is most commonly implemented within the packaging industry. A strapping tool is used to wrap a polyester (PET) strap around a product or container to seal, reinforce and/or fasten such, for increased security and protection whilst in transit or storage.

We stock three models of cordless friction weld tool. The standard GT model is our most versatile tool and suitable for most general purpose strapping tasks. Our other 12mm and 16mm models are powerful and speedy, the tool allows for lengthy operation including up to 600 strap cycles. Regardless of which model you choose to buy, you will benefit from the convenience of being able to increase or lessen the tension of a strap, and seal and cut it quickly with just one hand. To see this in action, please refer to our demonstrative video in the more details section.

All of our friction weld tools are fully mobile due to being cordless and powered by a rechargeable battery. Each also comprises easy strap insertion, and the degree of tension and sealing time can be auto-set with just one push of a button.

We also stock strapping trolleys and sealers.
