  • High reliability 98%
  • The perfect double notch joint of the tool A482 (A483) guarantees 75% of the tensile strength of the steel strap (similar to 80% reached with 3 punches but a lot higher then 55% with 2 punches necessary for small packs/coils)
  • All current steel straps can be used with elongation from 600-1100N/mm2 / 87000-160000psi or galvanised
    Packs can be dirty or with grease (no problems like with welding joints)
  • Using seals available in the market (competitors ask for their own seal)
  • The strap is tensioned through a profiled tension wheel, driven by motor-gear frequency controlled, adjustment by pneumatic clutch with manometer
  • No tension released (not necessary an opposite joint or the Microlock joint)

  • Circumferential strap for coils with ext. diameter aprox.400mm
  • Strap feed and retract speed is frequency controlled and therefore adjustable
  • Low wearing material; wearing parts in contact with the seal are made for A482 (A483) so available in stock
  • Mechanical switch/sensor to detect the parcel
