How do I apply strapping?

There are different tools for applying, tensioning and sealing strapping. It will depend on the types of bundles and pallet loads you are securing and the size of your operation as to which tools you will need.

  • Strapping Hand Tools – manual tools that include shears, tensioners and crimpers used with seals and buckles.
  • Strapping Machines – automation of strapping applications with an automatic or semi-automatic machine.
  • Strapping Power Tools – are a good option for odd-shaped bundles. They can be battery operated or pneumatic and are hand-held, some of which tension, heat seal, crimp and cut the strap.
