Strapping and securing packs is referred to as strapping with a closure strap, which is called a strapping band. Strapping is nowadays found in nearly every industry: whether in the metal industry, building materials, timber, drinks, furniture, logistics or consumer goods: At the end of the production process and before shipping. Packages are sealed with straps, bundled goods or the packaged goods are fixed on a pallet for transport. Especially in the area of load securing, the issue of strapping plays an important role, whether container shipments, airfreight shipping or rail and road freight traffic. From sensitive and sensitive materials to complete machines and heavy concrete blocks, the strapping solution can be individually tailored to the respective application. The materials used depend entirely on the product. In most cases, steel, plastic or fabric strapping is used. The strapping is tensioned, closed and cut off by metal clamps, sleeves or welding techniques.
Depending on the size of the packs, the quality of the packaged goods and the required force, a variety of tools are used: manual strapping tools, pneumatic strapping tools, battery strapping tools, and strapping machines integrated into fully automatic conveying and packaging systems.
