SQ-800, High Speed Automatic Strapping Machine

How do you replace the world’s most reliable strapping machine?
… With a better one!!!

The SQ-800 is the newest addition to the StraPack strapping machine line. It has all of the features and reliability of the RQ-8x, with many upgrades. It operates at up to 54 cycles per minute, regardless of the tension setting. The new DC power design results in improved operation while requiring fewer moving parts. The improved system for strap feeding, reversing and tensioning results in quiet operation while generating much less strap dust. Check out the other features and options that make the SQ-800 the new workhorse of the StrapPack line.

SQ-800Y, Side Seal Automatic Strapping Machine

The SQ-800Y with brushless DC Motors is a side-sealing model which boasts all of the advanced features of the SQ-800 series, such as strap self-loading, strap re-feed and loop ejection.

The SQ-800Y adapts easily to any existing or proposed conveyor system, adapts to any conveyor height, and requires no special equipment for conveyor integration. Several options are available to make it easy to integrate the SQ-800Y into a conveyor system. It is ideal for heavy products.  The weight of the product is supported by the conveyor, not the strapping machine. In applications where dirt and dust is a factor, the side-mounted head is also preferable.

Standard strapping rate is 50 straps/min, even when tension is applied. The machine is ready to operate in less than 25 seconds, contributing to increased packaging line efficiencies.

SQ-800IR, Compact Strapping Machine

With the coil located inside the machine, the SQ-800IR takes up no more space than a standard string tyer. The SQ-800IR is designed for users with limited working space, such as those in graphic arts, magazine/newspaper distribution, laundry, and the direct mail industry. It runs inexpensive ¼” or ⅜” strapping. Mail trays and tubs fit easily into the 27″ wide by 16″ high arch. The angled sides of the SQ-800IR arch support the sides of mail trays during strapping. With the addition of a programmable photocell, the operator is free to use both hands on the package and can apply one or two straps without using a hand switch or foot pedal.

SQ-800IR3, High Speed Compact Strapping Machine

Like the SQ-800IR, The SQ-800IR3 is designed for use in the graphic arts, magazine/newspaper distribution, laundry, and direct mail industry. The newly designed special high-speed sealing head can achieve 51 bundles per minute without compromising the tension strength. With the integrated foot pedal under the body, as well as its internal strap dispenser, the SQ-800IR3 provides rapid operation in a minimum of space. The handles on both sides of the machine body, together with oversized casters, make the machine easy to maneuver in a limited space. The machine is easy to install and operates on common household current.

SQ-800S, Strapping Machine for Small Bundles

With a miniaturized sealing head, the SQ-800S can strap small bundles that standard machines simply cannot handle. It is a fast way to securely unitize small bundles of plastic pipe, conduit, aluminum extrusions, wood molding, dowels, metal rods or other bundle. It can strap items as small as 1-½” wide x 1-⅛” high, depending on the shape of the bundle. With many of the features found on the standard SQ-800 series, including easy strap loading, lubrication free operation and two tension modes, the SQ-800 is a unique machine for strapping small bundles.

SQ-800SUS, Stainless Steel Strapping Machine

The SQ-800SUS boasts all of the advanced features of the SQ-800 series, such as self-loading, strap re-feed and loop ejection, but adds an attractive and practical stainless steel body.

The machine is designed for meat and poultry packing or pharmaceutical and clean room applications, where there is exposure to moisture and/or  maintaining hygiene is important. The fully enclosed stainless steel cabinet protects the components from moisture exposure. The bottom of the cabinet is reinforced to provide extra protection where moisture exposure is greatest.

RQ-8LD/LS, Low Profile Strapping Machines

When your applications require a low conveyor height and a bottom seal strapping machine, the RQ-8 low profile models are the perfect machines. With a cabinet height of only 17″, the RQ-8L series is unique. Unlike side-seal machines, the package does not have to be shifted against the sealing head. The RQ-8LD comes with the dispenser attached to the unit. The RQ-8LS is identical, but with the dispenser separated and on casters.

RQ-8A, Fully Automated w/Conveyor Table Top

The RQ-8A is available in several tabletop belt configurations to match various package sizes. A roller conveyor version is also available. The conveyor speed is variable, up to 98 feet per minute on standard machine, and as an option, up to 132 feet per minute. An inverter system makes the conveyor speed easily adjustable. The standard RQ-8A allows the selection of 0, 1 or 2 straps. Optional automation packages are available to provide a variety of automatic strap placements. The standard RQ-8A also features self-correcting technologies vital in fully automatic applications, such as automatic re-feed, loop ejection, and an integrated, self-diagnostic monitoring system. When the application depends on reliable operation and low maintenance, the RQ-8A is a perfect choice.

RQ-7000M, Stainless Steel Automatic Strapping Machine for Harsh Environments

The moisture-resistant RQ-7000M boasts an advanced high-speed sealing head along with the durability of the AQ-7M, and most of the features of StraPack’s  best-selling automatic machine, the RQ-8X, such as strap self-loading, re-feed and loop ejection. The RQ-7000M is capable of 50 cycles per minute, which is makes it one of the fastest machines of its kind. Permanently lubricated mechanisms, side-seal design, and body parts made of stainless steel make the RQ-7000M the ideal machine for harsh environments such as fish, meat, and poultry packing. Fully automatic configurations are available.

RQ-8CR/FR, Fully Automatic With Roller Conveyor And Pneumatic Compression For Corrugated Bundling

The reliability, speed, ease of operation and low maintenance costs of the RQ-8 Series strapping machines are now available on a bundling machine designed specifically for the corrugated industry. The RQ-8CR/FR features high cycle speed, easy strap loading, auto re-feed, loop ejection, lubrication-free operation and safe two-stage tensioning. It incorporates a 65” wide x 20” high arch, top compression, a driven roller conveyor table and runs 1/4” strap to meet the requirements of corrugated container production. For production settings with high output requirements, the RQ-CR/FR is also available with a dual strap dispenser and automatic strap transfer system, as pictured above. This system is designed to prevent costly production stoppages due to strap coil changes.

RQ-8YAO, Side Seal Automatic Palletizing Machine With Pallet Void Feeder

The StraPack RQ-8YAO is an automatic, side seal strapping machine that straps palletized products using polypropylene or polyester strapping. The RQ-8YAO operates as a stand-alone unit or can be integrated into a packaging line. The arch sword penetrates the pallet void and straps the product to the pallet. It features the RQ-8 strapping head with a DC drive torque tension mechanism that maintains consistent, high tension up to 225 lbs. Fast, consistent, precise, and repeatable strap feeding avoids jams and increases up-time. Also, the strap festooning system maintains even strap tension during the reversing cycle, a useful feature on large arch machines.

AQ-7, Economical 220 Volt, 3 Phase Strapping Machine

The AQ-7 is an economical version of the RQ-8x strapping machine. It can be ordered for strap widths from 1/4” to 5/8”. The AQ-7 features the same lubrication free operation as the standard RQ-8x.
