GCU SmartFlex compression strapping machine:

 

The GCU SmartFlex compresses and straps corrugated loads utilizing a modular head design for easy maintenance and operation.

GCU SmartFlex Features

Modular strapping heads
 Separate, lightweight tensioning and sealing modules are easy to access and remove for maintenance, reducing downtime.

Strap placement flexibility
 Innovative head spacing with five positions provides for variable strap placement options and minimizes the need for double stroking.

“Smart” dispensers
 The strap feeding modules are mounted directly onto the dispenser framework, enabling simple one-step loading and feeding.

LBX-6520 corrugated bundler:

The LBX-6520 plastic strapping machine increases production speed, optimizes performance and maximizes efficiency to save time and money. It is the fastest corrugated bundler in its class, automatically strapping up to 50 bundles per minute. It features our patented jam-resistant technology and automatic cut-off and refeed mechanism, making it the only truly operatorless corrugated bundler available.

LBX-6520 Features

Automatic cut-off and refeed
 

 Signode’s patented automatic cut-off and refeed feature automatically ejects misfed strap, rethreads itself and continues strapping without operator intervention.

Fewer Parts
 

 With 40% fewer parts and more timesaving features, the LBX-6520 simplifies operation and maintenance to save you time and money.

Out-of-strap feature
 The out-of-strap feature ejects the strap at the end of the coil to eliminate the downtime associated with removing the excess strap left in the machine.

ISB in-line corrugated bundle squaring and strapping machine:

The ISB automatic in-line corrugated bundler improves production efficiency with reliable, high-speed, low-maintenance operation. It automatically squares and straps up to 30 bundles per minute in the flute direction as they exit the folder-gluer or other finishing equipment. The ISB is available in three basic models accommodating stack widths of 170 to 1300 mm, 1600 mm and 2,000 mm.

ISB Features

Increases productivity

At up to 30 bundles per minute, the ISB machine straps one bundle while squaring the next for maximum productivity.
 Lower cost of ownership
 ISB machines feature a simplified design with more durable wear parts, reducing maintenance costs and lowering the total cost of ownership.

Modular design
 Available in three different models, the ISB’s modular design allows for easy integration into any operation.

Signode plastic strapping systems for the Corrugated Industry consist of Contrax® polypropylene strapping, Tenax® polyester strapping, seals, hand tools, power strapping equipment, dispensers and accessories.

Tenax® polyester strapping:

Tenax polyester strapping is ideally suited for unitizing corrugated loads. It yields higher break strengths and maintains a higher level of retained strap tension than polypropylene strapping. Straps stay tight on corrugated loads that tend to shift during handling and transit. Tenax can be applied by hand tools or power strapping equipment. Some sizes are available in long coils for fewer coil changeovers and greater uptime.

Contrax® polypropylene strapping:

Contrax polypropylene strapping is designed to run through hand tools and power strapping equipment. Its excellent elongation recovery properties make it a good choice for light to medium-duty unitizing applications, including horizontal unitization of case goods.
