StraPack RQ-8A Fully Automated Strapping Machine

The StraPack RQ-8A is a fully automatic strapping machine suitable for integration into production line systems. It offers the benefits of the RQ-8x and incorporates flat conveyor belts built into the machine table top to index packs in and out of the strapping arch.

Photo-electric cells detect the pack position. A varying number of straps can be applied according to the pack length. The machine can also be manually operated provided that the table selector switch is placed in the ‘OFF’ position to turn of the belts.
