The side-seal model adapts easily to conveyorized automated packaging systems. The compact design of the arch requires only a 76mm or 3″ gap in the conveyor. It is easy to slide out of the conveyor system when service is required. Several options are available to make it easy to integrate into a conveyor system. An end of cycle interlock signals the conveyor system to restart. Out of strap or cycle error signals warn that the strapping machine requires operator attention. This is ideal for heavy products. The weight of the product stays mostly on the conveyor, not on the strapping machine. In applications where dirt and dust is a factor, the side-mounted head is also ideal.
