BPX Building Products Strapping Machine

The BPX compression strapping system delivers maximum packaging reliability in a simple to operate and easy to use machine. Its streamlined design with innovative, built-in features enables faster cycle times and more consistent package performance.

Features and Benefits

  • Simplified maintenance procedures
    The BPX system features separate, lightweight strapping modules that are easily accessible and removable, eliminating special handling equipment and simplifying operator intervention. Plus their innovative design coupled with fewer moving parts reduces maintenance requirements.
    • Automated platen latch
    • Remote strap feeding
    • Separate high/low voltage cabinets
    • Pressure release button raises compression platen
  • Unparalleled package performance
    Unique, independent side compression provides more surface coverage for improved load squaring and alignment. And unlike other systems, the BPX prefolds edge protectors prior to placing them on the load helping to provide consistent strap tension. To further maximize load stability, battens are delivered to the load and held securely in place until strapping has concluded.
  • Minimizes production interruptions
    The BPX’s highly intuitive, user-friendly HMI allows for machine preprogramming and provides quick diagnosis of service related
    issues, limiting production downtime.
