VR88 Automatic Vertical Strapping


The most popular and best selling solution for the vertical strapping of all types of products, the Messersi PSVR88 automated strapping machine is easily inserted in conveyor lines and will apply ? without operator ? polypropylene or polyester strapping as required.

Fitted with the MS300?low maintenance precision engineered strapping head to maximise machine uptime, the machine will use strap widths from 8 -19mm, tensioning up to 300 Kgs as standard and up to 700 Kgs when the wider thicker strapping sizes are used. ?These strapping machines can be bespoke built i.e have larger strap arches and incorporate automatic placement of corner edge protection making it one of the most versatile strapping machines available. PLC controlled.


The PR90G from Messersi is a very popular model for strapping glass and PET bottles and containers very quickly with a cycle time of only 15 seconds enabling it deal with 80 -120 double strapped pallets per hour. The machine uses both polypropylene and polyester strapping in widths ranging from 9 -19mm wide although generally strapping of choice is 9mm polyester and after tension has been applied to the strap it is then joined using the well proven friction weld technique.

The overhead compression platen operates by means of rack and pinion and can be supplied to suit the range of compression required for the particular application. Two reciprocating strap lances feed the strap through pallet voids.

The strapping machine is controlled by PLC ? touch screen controls on a stand alone pedestal manage all machine functions. The strapping heads?are well proven, simple patented concept design to make any maintenance very quick and easy.


Automatic Strapping Machine PR99 from Messersi is suitable for all products requiring a degree of compression prior to plastic strapping being applied, such as corrugated board, cardboard, paper, paper bags etc.

The overhead compression platen applies up to 3000 Kgs pressure (5000 Kgs on request) by means of rack and pinion and incorporates two strapping heads that tension and join the strapping by means of the well established and proven friction weld method. Two plastic straps are fed around the pallet simultaneously with a total cycle time ?between 15 ? 22 seconds, varying with the height of the pack i.e. full height loads will be quicker than half height loads. Two reciprocating strap lances feed the strap through pallet voids.
