Pneumatic hand tools take most of the effort out of tensioning and sealing by performing those operations at the push of a button or lever. Powered hand tools are typically used to reduce operator fatigue, improve strapping efficiency and provide uniform tensioning. Signode pneumatic combination tools utilize air power to tension, seal and cut off plastic strapping. The lightweight VFX-9/13 sealless Tension-Weld™ model is ideal for unitizing palletized corrugated bundles and corrugated sheet loads
Manual hand tools are the most basic form of strap application equipment. They are perfect for operations that either do not have access to power sources or do not require the speed of powered hand tools. Signode manual tensioners provide strap operators with a simple method for tightening strapping around a load. A manual sealer is then used to positively join the tensioned strap ends together, ensuring that loads remain secure during transit, handling and storage.
