Lumber and Panel - Steel Strapping Systems

Power Strapping Machines

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 Forest Products 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 power strapping machines, seals, hand tools, and dispensers. Our Forest Products Industry sales, equipment service, customer service and engineering departments can help you design the optimum protective packaging system for your application.

MP compression strapping machine

Power strapping machines, the most efficient method for strap application, ensure uniform strap placement and load integrity. For lumber and panel load packaging, we manufacture the MP compression strapping machine which can be equipped with the KLS steel strapping head. The MP features a modular design that is not sensitive to load flow direction. Many components, such as the batten feeder and strap dispenser, can be attached to either side of the machine for flexible operation. The MP produces tight, stable packages with high retained tension to withstand vibration during rough handling and shipping. Sequential top and side compression, combined with a floating head mount, eliminates voids to provide a more secure package.
