Strapping Hand Tools
Signode's manual hand tensioners allow operators to bring strap to desired tension with minimal interruption, effort and strap waste.
Most tensioners have a base which goes under the strapping and rests on the flat surface of the object being strapped. For smaller or irregular bundles, a push-type tensioner, which has no base under the strap, is recommended.
Signode's pneumatic tensioners take most of the effort out of strapping large or compressible packages. They also make tensioning uniform and precise through adjustment of the air pressure regulator.
All pneumatic tensioners, except windlass tensioners, have unlimited strap take-up. All pneumatic tensioners are furnished with a quick-disconnect plug. It is essential that an air filter-regulator-lubricator assembly be installed ahead of the tool on the air line.
| Manual Sealers
Signode's manual sealers provide positive sealing action with minimal effort. Light and durable, they lock strapping ends into a high strength joint.
Notchtype sealers cut into the seal and outer edges of the strapping, turning tabs down (down notch) or up (reverse notch).
Crimp-type sealers press the edges of the strapping and seal into wavy crimps specially shaped to produce maximum frictional forces on the strapping.
Signode's pneumatic sealers let compressed air do most of the work. They are used to achieve high production
on heavy strapping, especially when seals are in awkward positions or whenever productivity must be maximised.
These labour saving sealers come in two basic styles. Those featuring pistol grips are lightweight for easy one hand operation.
Diaphragm types are for heavy duty applications.
All pneumatic sealers are furnished with a quick disconnect plug. An air filter and regulator are necessary. A lubricator in the air is not required.
Combination ToolsManual Combination Tools
Combination tools function as tensioners, sealers, and often cutters as well. They save time by eliminating the handling of seperate tools. Because a single combination tool weighs more than such tools, they should be placed as close as possible to the position where they will be used. Seal-feed combination tools carry a stack of seals in a magazine for fast, easy loading.
| Manual Seal Feed
|Manually operated seal-feed combination tools include the AH, AL and AM series models.|
| Manual Sealless
|The SCM and SCMH sealless combination tools require no metal seals, saving time and money. Production interruptions for reloading are eliminated, along with the purchasing, inventorying and loading of seals.|
Pneumatic Combination Tools
Using applied air pressure as a power source, pneumatic combination tools quickly and effortlessly tension, seal and cut the strapping. Pneumatic combination tools are available in three varieties:-
