AK200 Strapping Head for Plastic Strapping

Designed for applications that utilize polyester and polypropylene strapping, the AK200, available for standard or heavy-duty applications, is ideal for general packaging as well as stand non-ferrous metals, brick and block, timber and more.

Features and Benefits

  • Maximizes performance
    The AK200 strapping head combines the superior characteristics of Tenax strapping with Signode’s patented friction-weld technology to ensure reliable and consistent joints for optimal stability throughout the transportation cycle.
  • Ensures sustainability
    The AK200 utilizes plastic strapping that is manufactured with recycled content and is also recyclable. This, coupled with weld technology that eliminates hazardous emissions during cycling, makes the AK200 an environmentally-friendly option.
  • Maintains production consistency
    Standard features like a large feed and take-up wheel ensure optimum strap feed and consistently high applied strap tension.
