Strapping News

Innovative, Intuitive, Intelligent – these words sum up the latest technological leap by Orgapack handsets in the area of flexible, manual strapping.

Orgapack Packaging Technology is presenting a completely new generation of battery-operated manual strapping tools at the Interpack Fair. The concept of the new OR-T tool fulfils the five most important customer needs and impresses with its simplicity and transparency: •    Extreme robustness – the new OR-T tool withstands the harshest usage and environmental conditions •    Ergonomics – ergonomic design and perfectly balanced for easy handling•    Reliability – digital process monitoring for the highest locking quality•    User friendly – intuitive, easy-to-understand operating concept•    Easy to maintain – fast and easy cleaning and replacement of wear parts

Thanks to these new features, operation becomes even easier and faster, operating errors are eliminated and the locking quality perfected. The new 3-colour touch display is intuitive to use and shows the operating mode, welding times, strap tension and the real-time tension. This new display increases the safety of the process significantly and thus guarantees perfect locking quality. The favourites function allows for a quick change of use for different packaged goods. The inching mode of the tension button is also new, which means the tension process can be started slowly and perfectly controlled. An optical display warns of bands that have not been inserted correctly. A colour display and an acoustic signal inform whether the welding has been successfully completed or if there is an operating error.

Another innovation in strapping will be the patented GripPack battery powered tool for steel strapping. The GripPack provides the low weight and portability that operators need but can’t get with pneumatic tools. Weighing less than eight poundsit provides the same reliable performance as pneumatic tensioners and sealers without air generation costs and air flow inconsistencies.
