StraPack RQ-8LD Automatic Strapping Machines

When you require a low conveyor height and a bottom seal strapping machine, the RQ-8LD low table model is the perfect machine.  The strap dispenser is fixed to the body of the machine, and the strap is fed automatically into the machine.

With a standard cabinet height of only 432mm, the StraPack RQ-8LD is unique – unlike side-seal machines, the package does not have to be shifted against the sealing head. Engineering modifications means that there are a variety of arch sizes available and the height can be reduced to as small as 345 mm, allowing full adaptability.

Products longer than approx. 914mm can be strapped automatically by integrating a StraPack RQ-8LD into a powered conveyor line. For shorter packages, it can be supplied as fully automated machines with powered belts on the table top just like the RQ-8A series.
