Tampa, FL (April 20, 2022)– Signode, the leading global manufacturer of a broad spectrum of automated packaging equipment, tools, and consumables, has launched its new BPT Steel Strapping Tool.
Featuring a balanced and lightweight design, the battery-operated tool is ideal for a wide range of steel strapping applications, including heavy-duty stationary or mobile applications requiring high tension force. BPT has up to 500 cycles per battery charge, allowing seamless and continuous operation with full mobility throughout the plant, not restricted by the reach of air hoses or air quality.
“The BPT is the latest example of Signode’s Innovation in Action approach,” says Ralph Kieffer, Director of Global Market Development at Signode. “We listened to what our global customers were looking for in a mobile steel strapping tool, and that important input really guided our design and development process.”
The new tool boasts high performance battery and brushless motor technology, providing electronically controlled and reproducible strapping processes. Intelligent features include real time indication of the strapping status and visual and acoustic signals.
The BPT tools have an intuitive touchscreen user interface and allow a quick and comfortable adjustment of the strapping parameters depending on the package and even offer selectable manual, semi or fully automatic operation modes, and a favorite setting.
