Strap-Pokas, these strapping machines simultaneously apply up
to four plastic straps around any unitized load, and can in fact
apply a mixture of both vertical and horizontal straps at the same
time. With just one push a pallet strapping machine can place two
straps around a pallet in just 6 seconds effectively
the time and effort to strap a pallet by 50%.... it’s that easy!

Another innovative product unique to this Company recognizes
that there is a real need to reduce the risk of an operator dropping
the more sophisticated battery powered strapping tools, causing
damage and subsequent repair costs, by eliminating the need for the
operator to hold the tool. The unique range of mobile work stations
support the tool at a convenient height against the side of a pallet
for vertical and horizontal strapping providing a virtual ‘Hands
Free’ operation, and eliminating a prime cause of expensive repair
The Plastic Strapping
manufacture strapping hand tools ranging from simple sealers and
to robust and reliable one piece combination tools that use serrated
safety seals for use with polypropylene and polyester strapping,
which incidentally we can print with your Company Logo, telephone
number etc. Strapping materials are a core part of our business and
these include conventional extruded polypropylenes and polyesters,
woven and corded polyester, antistatic polyester, and steel straps,
so whatever the strapping application it is likely we can provide
The Company was established in 1979, specializes only in strapping
systems and has employees with many years experience who are
encouraged to give unbiased advice regarding the suitability of any
brand of strapping equipment for a particular application. Although
trading relationships with the major producers of strapping
equipment do exist there are no formal agreements, and it places
great emphasis on giving advice that best serves customer interests.
In a similar vein, the range of pallet strapping machines
manufactured demonstrates the ability to recognize end user needs.
Equipment must be effective and affordable, and in this instance it
recognized that although automatic and automated strapping machines
have been available for a long time, the cost is such that 95% of
industry that currently straps pallets manually will never buy one,
but still have an urgent need to make affordable and effective
improvements to their pallet strapping operations. PSCL pallet
strapping machine are unique insofar as they can be designed and
manufactured to meet a much wider range of strapping applications
than conventional strapping machines, and at a fraction of the cost,
such that ‘payback’ is seldom longer than 2-3 months.
The Plastic Strapping Company also market a full range of top
quality conventional automatic and automated in line strapping
machines. Manufactured in Germany these machines are first choice
for most 24 x 7 operations, who appreciate that although they cost
marginally more than machines manufactured elsewhere, the after
sales cost when calculated in terms of lifetime cost i.e.
maintenance and production downtime is far less and quickly
supersedes the initial purchase cost premium.
