The StraPack RQ-8YAO is an automatic, side seal strapping machine that straps palletized products. The machine is compatible with PP or PET strap. The RQ-8YAO can be a stand-alone unit or be integrated into a packaging line. The arch sword penetrates the pallet void and straps the product to the pallet. It features the RQ-8 strapping head with a DC drive torque tension mechanism, maintaining consistent, high tension up to 1000N. Fast, consistent, precise, and repeatable strap feeding avoids jams and increases up-time. Also, the strap holder rollers maintain even strap tension during reversing cycle, a useful feature on large arch machines.
