How to pick the best strapping machine for you? Here are two questions to consider when picking the machine for your company.

How automated do you want to be?

3 Main types of Machines

  • Semi-Automatic Also know as table top machines, about the size of a small table, operator wraps strap around package, Machine automatically tightens strap, expect to spend around $1,000-$2,000 depending on MFG.
  • Arch-Machines, more automated, , but still require an operator to position the package, and press an activation button (or foot switch) to start the strapping operation. With an arch machine, the strap travels around an “arch” creating a loop before activation. When the operator activates the strapping sequence, the strap tensions, heat seals, and pre-feeds the strap for the next cycle. Many Arch machines can also be activated by a photocell or limit switch built into the top. While these devices will automatically activate the cycle, the operator will still position the package for strapping and remove it when the cycle is completed. Arch size is critical with an arch machine, since package size is limited to what will fit under the arch. Arch machines are much faster than semi automatic machines, less operator dependant, and, of course, more expensive. Expect to spend around $5,000-$10,000 depending on MFG.   
  • Fully Automatic Machines- Similar to arch machines, fully automatic strappers have built in conveyor systems to carry your product through the strapping machinery, and are activated by an automated device, usually a photocell. Fully automatic machines do not require an operator. As with arch machines, they must be sized properly. The additional features on a fully automatic machine will drive the cost up to the $15,000 and up range, depending on features and arch size.


How Fast do you want to strap?

  • Semi 10-15 Straps per minute
  • Arch 30-70 Straps per minute
  • Automatic 40-80 per minute

Strapping is the process of securing pieces of equipment together for shipment or for storage, and is also known as bundling or banding. This improves the organization of product being stored, which frees up costly warehouse storage space. Bundling your used material handling equipment secures it in racking, and makes it easier to retrieve, and virtually ready to ship. (click here to view entire article)


Some of the common items that would get strapped include:

  • Boxes, crates, pallets, and skids
  • Coils of steel or paper
  • Packaged glass
  • Metal Parts
  • Concrete blocks or bricks


The four types of strapping that are commonly used are steel, polyester, nylon, and polypropylene. Steel strapping is the most commonly used in the industry and comes in high tensile and regular duty. Regular duty steel strapping is comprised of low carbon steel, which is good for medium and light duty applications. High tensile steel strapping utilizes high carbon steel that is heat treated. This allows the strapping to stretch slightly when under pressure to absorb shock. This is ideal for securing loads on a full trailer or an open top railcar.


Polyester strapping and nylon strapping are the strongest plastic strapping products, mainly due to its ability to provide retained tension on rigid loads.  Nylon used to be utilized in its place, but due to its high price, is becoming a less realistic option unless the additional strength is needed. Nylon has the highest strength of the three types of plastic strapping. It also does not creep in cold applications, meaning it doesn’t become deformed due to mechanical stress.

Polypropylene strapping is one of the most economical material for strapping light to medium loads, and is available in various widths and thicknesses. Although it has high elongation at break, it can lose about 50% of applied tension within one hour. Strap slackness can occur if being used with a solid product like beams. Polypropylene strapping is also susceptible to UV damage, so it is better for products being stored indoors. Certain colors of polypropylene strap will also slow the UV ray’s effects, such as black.
