Basingstoke-based Gordian Strapping has announced that its parent company Strapack has launched two new RQ-8 automatic strapping machine models

Strapping machines manufacturer Strapack is celebrating its eightieth anniversary this year.

In a statement, Gordian Strapping said that the “RQ-8x and RQ8000 represent the evolution of one of StraPack’s most popular and longest selling models, the RQ-8, and reinforce the market leading position of the RQ-8 series”.

According to Gordian, self-correcting technology, easy strap loading and auto re-feed are further features of the RQ-8 series, which is compatible with polypropylene strap from 5, 6, 9, 12, 15.5 mm.

Ready to operate in under 25 seconds, the machine can be programmed to enter standby mode from 15 seconds to 5 minutes after the last strap cycle, thereby saving energy, according to Gordian.

The new RQ-8x and RQ8000 offer strapping speeds of up to 55 and 64 straps per minute respectively, even with tension applied.

Gordian Strapping sales and marketing director Daren Spice said: “The RQ-8 is a real workhouse and has proven itself in the toughest environments over the years.  We are delighted to offer these two new models with direct drive technology.”
