Application of Packaging Strap in Metal Material Industry
Bricks, steel and other materials are an indispensable part of the building materials industry. As the price of steel raw materials rises, the price of steel strips rises accordingly. Many customers said that the production and transportation of steel pipes is a more critical link, and steel transportation has become the most important issue for manufacturers. As a heavy item of steel, once it falls off during transportation, the consequences and losses will be difficult to estimate. Then, what packing strap and what kind of tensioner should be used for packaging and fixing steel material?
1. What kind of packing belt should be used
It does not mean that steel strap must be used for packing steel pipes and steels. Wider and thicker plastic PET strap can also be used. If necessary, even non-slip and wear-resistant composite fiber strap can be used. If the corresponding steel needs to avoid scratches or have a very smooth surface, then you can tend to use composite strapping. Compared with plastic PET strap and composite strap, steel belts have lower tensile properties, but are harder and stronger in tensile strength. It can also ensure that the steel will not fall during transportation and can be used for hoisting.
2. What kind of tensioner should be
For steel belts and PET plastic belts, there are generally two types of strapping tensioners: one is a pneumatic integrated steel belt tensioner, and the other is a pneumatic split steel strapping tensioner. The pneumatic integrated steel strapping tensioner is heavier, but the body is wear-resistant and the shell is firm, which is more suitable for sharper products such as steel. The pneumatic split steel strapping tensioner is separated for tightening and cutting, and it is relatively light and easy to carry. For fiber composite strapping, you can choose between manual tensioner and pneumatic tensioner. The manual tensioner is easy to operate and can be used on different occasions at any time. The pneumatic tensioner is heavier, but It has more tension, and it mainly works by friction and heat melting.
