What is a strapping machine? 

A strapping machine is a special machine that is used to secure products or goods with strapping bands. The strapping is placed around the items to be packaged and then tightened and sealed using the machine. This stabilizes the load and protects it from damage during transport.  

Strapping machines are used in various industries, such as mail order, logistics, the food industry and many others, where it is important to ensure the safety and integrity of the packaged products.

For which packaging or materials should a strapping machine be used? 

It can be used for various packaging and materials. These include, among others:

  • Cartons and crates: Strapping machines can be used to secure cartons and crates and ensure stability during transportation. 
  • Pallets: Strapping machines are often used to strap pallet loads and hold the individual cartons or products together on the pallet. 
  • Bundled goods: If several products need to be combined into a bundle, this packaging machine can be used. 
  • Wood and metal products: Strapping machines can also be used to secure wood and metal products to prevent damage during transportation. 
  • Building materials: Large and heavy building materials such as pipes, profiles or panels can be strapped securely with a strapping machine to ensure their stability. 

 There are different types of strapping machines that can be used depending on the specific requirements and materials.

What other packaging machines are there?

There are actually a variety of packaging machines that are used in different industries. Some examples are:

  • Sealing machines: These machines are used to close packaging, whether by applying lids, caps or seals. They are often used for food packaging or in the pharmaceutical industry.
  • Labeling machines: These machines are used to apply labels to packaging. They can apply pre-printed labels as well as print and apply labels directly on site.
  • Shrinking machines: These machines use heat to shrink packaging and place it tightly around the product. This ensures safe and attractive packaging. An example of shrinking machines is a vacuum machine to vacuum pack the products in their bags.
  • Cartoning machines: These machines are used to pack products into cartons. They can fold and fill flat cartons as well as fill and seal cartons that have already been folded.

These are just a few examples of packaging machines, but there are many more specialized machines that can be used depending on the requirements of the respective industry.
