Steel Strapping Systems

As the industry leader in steel strapping systems since 1913, we maintain an aggressive approach to the design and development of protective packaging systems for the metals industry. At the heart of each of these systems is our Magnus® or Apex Plus™ steel strapping. Each is specially formulated to meet the demands of a particular range of applications. To ensure the best performance of these strapping materials, we've also designed a full line of application equipment and accessories, including seals, hand tools, power strapping machines and dispensers. Our metal service center industry sales, equipment service, customer service and engineering departments can help you design the optimum protective packaging system for your application.

Power Strapping Machines


Easily integrated into existing equipment and OEM systems, Signode’s innovative M247 modular steel strapping head provides reliable performance and reduced downtime for heavy-duty steel strapping applications.








Power strap feeders

Power strap feeders significantly increase production efficiency for hand tool strapping applications by automatically threading strapping around the product and back to the operator to be strapped. These systems are available for circumferential and through-the-eye coil packaging applications.








Slit coil packaging systems

The M20-SV Series slit coil packaging systems are designed for metal service centers. These machines all feature the rugged, reliable M20 steel strapping head for dependable, low-maintenance operation. We manufacture models that can be equipped with a manipulating table or integrated with an existing one







Bar and tube bundling

For bar and tube bundling, we manufacture the M400-BRP Series steel strapping machines. Depending upon the model, these machines may be installed in a fixed position or on top of a transfer car for round or square products.








Circumferential coil packaging systems

The M400-CH Series circumferential coil packaging systems are designed for strapping large diameter flat rolled steel coils. Models are available for coils with a horizontal axis that is in-line with conveyor travel and for coils that are perpendicular to conveyor flow.








Through-the-eye coil strapping

Through-the-eye coil strapping is performed by our M400-EH Series strapping machines. These machines feature a retracting strapping head carriage and pivoting strap chutes to provide convenient, in-line strapping of large diameter steel coils.





Stacked products

The M400-12 strapping machine accommodates a variety of stacked products, such as zinc slabs or aluminum ingots. It features a fixed chute system for use with roller conveyor.
