M410 Strapping Head
At the heart of Signode’s machinery is the proven M410 strapping head.
Its flexible, modular design and range of joint options, including seal, sealless or spot weld, enable the M400 to meet the demands of an extremely wide variety of applications.
Bar and tube bundling
For bar and tube bundling, we manufacture the M410-BRP Series steel strapping machines. Depending on 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 M410 and AK Head, 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.
Automatic coil labelling is available as an integrated feature within our range of automatic strapping machines.
Through-the-eye coil strapping
Through-the-eye, or radial, coil strapping is performed by our M410-EH Series strapping machines. These machines feature a retracting strapping head carriage and pivoting strap chutes to provide convenient, in-line strapping of hot rolled steel coils.
The KLS sealless steel strapping head is designed for 1/2″, 5/8″ and 3/4″ (12.7mm, 15.9mm and 19.0mm).
Apex Plus and Magnus steel strapping in gauges up to .031″ (0.79mm). This versatile strapping head is designed for medium to heavy-duty applications in a wide range of industries, including metals and lumber. Three versions of the sealing mechanism are available to form a 2-punch key joint, 3-punch key joint or a 4-punch key joint, with one reverse locking key.
The Signode PSF is a power strap feeder specially designed to apply straps quickly and efficiently around palletised or other large packs. Manual strapping of large, or palletised loads, is labour intensive and extremely time consuming. In some instances it can place operatives in a hazardous position and often, to overcome this, two operatives are required to complete the procedure.
The Signode PSF provides a much faster and more efficient alternative to manual strapping. Only one operator is required with the Signode PSF, which also acts as a workstation, enabling all packaging operations to be completed in a safe and ergonomic position – literally at the touch of a button!
Included in the Signode PSF is a strapping tool located on an overhead spring pivoting system, ensuring the strapping tool is not only always in the right position, but is light to use, minimizing operator fatigue.
