Strapping for Distribution Applications
The types of strap used in distribution depend on the volume and production requirements of the industry. Often, plastic strap is used—polypropylene for light- to regular-duty applications and polyester for products with heavier requirements. Each of these has its advantages, and choosing the right strap for your operations will depend on which advantages you need most.
Polypropylene strap is best for carton closing and bundling, lightweight palletizing, and UPS unitizing. It has high elongation, low elongation recovery, and is easy to recycle.
High performance polyester strap, on the other hand, is best for applications that require maximum tension retention and high break strength, such as heavy duty palletizing. Its high elongation recovery and high capacity for retaining tension make it great for units that need to be held tightly together.
Either of these may be applied by hand or via machine.
Strapping Machines and Equipment for Distribution Applications
Speed and precision are key when it comes to distribution applications. Every unit needs to be squared and strapped neatly, every carton and pallet needs to be securely bundled, and there is very little room for error.

- • Manual and powered tools for palletizing and low-production distribution requirements
