GT41 N Strapping Head

  • By changing the optional entry and exit guide the head have the ability to strap with polyester (PET) from 3/8 to 5/8 wide and .020 minimum thick strapping.
  • Consistently reproducible strap tensioning through an Allen Bradley PowerFlex 70 VFD and torque motor control
  • Consistently high seal efficiency
  • Environmentally favorable sealing by vibration welding
  • Separate drive section for high speed strap feeding and take up and to achieve maximum tension levels
  • Electronic strap circulation control
  • The strapping head is mounted on a movable assembly guided through linear bearings, and activated by an electric motor with a timing belt. The head has a load sensing device that detects the side of the load and tells the head movement to stop so tensioning and welding are done as close as possible to the product for maximum strap containment efficiency.
