Strapping Guide – Power Packaging

Polyester Strapping

Battery operated tools are designed to operate with most plastic strapping materials ( PET & PP ) and provide the portability of not requiring an external power source as they are a fully self contained unit. These tools have evolved to provide a reliable alternative to manual combination & pneumatic tools where portability is essential. These tools are made using only the highest quality components such as Genuine Bosch brush-less motors & German made “Akku Power” Lithium Ion batteries utilising the very best Sanyo Panasonic Lithium Ion cells for higher performance.

Do away with the need for seals, these tools utilise a Friction Weld seal to join the strap.

As with any strapping application it is absolutely critical that these tools are used to provide the best performance for your application.

Our sales staff can provide an obligation free assessment to determine the best solution for your application.

The Siat GT-One’s lightweight 3.7kg machine isn’t just fast; it also comes packed with high quality interior design and parts that make using this robust machine a joy to use whether tensioning, welding or cutting PP/PET strap.

With three functions (automatic, semi-automatic, and manual) operators can choose their level of control in the process, tensioning the strap by up to 2750N. For more fragile packages, an additional soft function can be used in combination with the primary three, reducing the tension to 500 N.

The strap width can be adjusted in just a few seconds. The GT-One adjusts between 10mm to 15mm in width, and from 0.5mm to 1.10 in thickness, making this a versatile tool for use all types of strap. Strapping is achieved through a Bosch brush-less motor which reduces maintenance costs as well as offering a longer life.

The ergonomic design of the GT-One offers a comfortable natural rubber handle with a centralized, perfectly balanced gravity point for comfortable use when strapping vertically.

Designed and manufactured by Siat, one of Italy’s leading tool manufacturers, the GT-One offers stylish, modern design combined with top quality components manufactured to the European Union’s strict guidelines.

The digital display allows for easy switching between the three modes: automatic, semi-automatic, and manual, giving operators the option of full control when needed. In addition to its high tension normal mode, there is also a soft mode for secure packaging of fragile materials.

All this power is packed into a stylish 4kg body that has been engineered for comfort in use. With a centralized point of gravity, the GT-H offers stability in both vertical and horizontal positions, while the long-lasting lithium battery allows for longer operating times for added efficiency.

The Bosch brush-less motor which drives the whole operation offers a longer life than competitors alongside lower maintenance costs as compared to brush motors, letting operators tension, cut and weld straps for longer.
