How to use PET strapping?

PET strapping, also known as plastic steel belt, emerges as a cutting-edge high-strength packing material, revolutionizing the traditional use of steel belts. Widely applied across industries such as ceramics, papermaking, chemical fiber, cotton spinning, tobacco, and wood, PET strapping combines the tensile strength of steel with the flexibility to resist impact. This guide delves into the features, benefits, and operational guidelines for PET strapping.

PET strapping

Features and Benefits:

  1. Tensile Strength and Welding Performance:
  • PET strapping boasts excellent tensile strength and welding performance, making it a robust packaging material.
  1. Long-lasting Tension and Retention:
  • Maintains a 5% tightening force for an extended period, ensuring exceptional impact resistance during long-distance transportation.
  1. Corrosion-free Packaging:
  • Safely packs goods directly with PET strapping without causing damage or corrosion.
  1. Flexible and Safe Operation:
  • PET strapping’s lack of sharp edges makes it safe to handle, eliminating the need for gloves. Its flexibility allows for convenient and efficient packing without special tools.
  1. Weather Resistance:
  • Exhibits excellent weather resistance, maintaining stability between -50℃ and 100℃.
  1. Aesthetic and Eco-friendly:
  • Boasts a beautiful appearance and is environmentally friendly and recyclable.
  1. Cost-effective:
  • Offers significant economic benefits with lower density compared to steel belts, resulting in a lower cost per meter.

Preparation Tools:

  1. PET strapping
  2. Plastic-steel strapping machine
  3. PET packing buckles (if using a baler requiring packing buckles)

Operational Steps:

1. Strapping:

  • Bundle the package with the packing tape, ensuring a 300mm tail.
  • Load the packing belt into the machine, maintaining the proper overlap separation.
  • Release the tensioner to pull the strap tightly.

2. Tighten and Cut:

  • Press the tension switch lever until the packing tape is taut.
  • Press the vibration switch lever to cut and weld the packing tape.
  • Hold the air baler vibration switch lever until the vibration timer stops automatically.

3. Remove the Packing Belt:

  • Press the handle and tensioner, and use the reversing switch to release the strap from the tightening wheel.
  • Squeeze the handle and tensioner to remove the tool from the strap.

Attention Points:

  • Safety First:
  • When using a pneumatic baler, prioritize safety measures.
  • Avoid passing hands through the strapping during the operation.

By adhering to these guidelines, operators can maximize the efficiency and safety of PET strapping, ensuring a reliable and secure packaging process across diverse industries.
