Strapping Machine

Automatic high performance strapping machine for full pallet loads. For integration in powered conveyor line. The strapping head is positioned horizontally above the load and, as part of the strapping cycle, will be lowered towards the load to be strapped. The bottom section of the strapping arch can be a standard undertrack style, or an electric motor driven pallet bayonet for "through-pallet" strapping, or a combination of both.

Wulftec offers the best warranty in the industry:

  • 1-year on the strapping head and track
  • 3-year unlimited cycle warranty
  • 3-years on the steel structure
