Handheld Strapping Machine

Where to Find the Ideal Handheld Strapping Machine


The process of strapping is a practical and trusted way of bundling, packaging, protecting, storing and transporting goods and materials. It’s a solution that is as quick and affordable as it is effective. All you need is the correct tool for the job. More often than not a portable handheld strapping machine is sufficient, and thus the ideal choice for the majority of small and medium enterprises.


There are many benefits to using a handheld strapping machine. Aside from the expected benefits one gets from the process of strapping – such as ease of transport, protection against theft, and improved stock control – a handheld device can supply additional advantages that a fully automated machine does not.


These benefits include:


  • Affordability: Typically, a handheld strapping machine is much more affordable than its automatic counterpart, which is a much larger device intended for larger scale operations.
  • Ease of operation: They require no special training and are easy to operate. This means that almost anyone in your team can use this tool.
  • Portability: Because of their size, they are very portable and can be moved around on your premises to where they are needed. This means that you don’t have to invest in multiple devices, and that you can take the tool to where you need it, rather than shift packages and goods around from one area to another within your premises. This makes your operations easier and saves time.
  • Versatility: These devices are suitable for a wide range of packaging solutions and applications. Furthermore, there are models available for both steel and plastic strapping.
