Pneumatic and battery powered hand tools take most of the effort out of tensioning and sealing by performing those operations at the push of a button or lever. Powered hand tools are typically used to reduce operator fatigue, improve strapping efficiency and provide uniform tensioning. Signode combination tools utilize air or battery power to tension, seal and cut off plastic strapping. These tools are available in seal-feed and sealless Tension-Weld® models.
The VT-16/19/25HD and VT-32HD pneumatic sealless Tension-Weld® combination tools are ideal for unitizing loads that require high tension (over 800 lbs.). The tools are easy to operate in either the vertical or horizontal position and weigh less than 10.5 lbs. Any one of the VT-16/19/25HD series or the VT-32HD can be easily installed on a Signode TS-44 lumber press.
The BXT2-16 combination tool applies polyester or polypropylene strapping, utilizing friction weld joint technology to join the strap ends. The battery-operated BXT2-16 has a simple two-button process and ergonomic design to reduce operator fatigue.
Manual hand tools are the most basic form of strap application equipment. They are perfect for operations that either do not have access to power sources or do not require the speed of powered hand tools. Signode manual combination tools provide convenient tensioning, sealing and strap cut off.
AMT combination tool
The AMT seal-feed combination tool pulls up to 600 lbs. of tension. It is portable, lightweight and easy to use, making it ideal for manually strapping lumber loads in areas where an air supply is not available. The AMT uses Signode's patented raised-tooth metal seals for high joint strength.
