How to strap a parcel with PaperStrap™ and the semi auto strapping machine

Maxpack Hall: 1 Stand: H44

What is paper strapping?

Its an entirely recyclable alternative to polypropylene plastic strapping and has been designed to be used in automatic or semi-automatic production operations. Its a seamless transition to paper strap which offers an environmentally sustainable solution that eliminates plastic waste.

Why use paper strap?

Its easy to fold up and can be disposed of with other paper and cardboard waste to be recycled together. According to the RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB, following an official product analysis: “considering the components, the paper strapping should be suited for recycling in established paper recycling systems”.

Conventional polypropylene or polyester strapping is challenging to recycle and often gets put into landfills or ends up in the countryside, on verges, in rivers or even in the oceans. The strapping requires less energy to apply and seal than plastic strapping and can work in the same machines with similar settings.

IWLEX Exhibitors say :

IWLEX Exhibitors say :

  • "We’ve never seen a show like it! Within six minutes of the inaugural IWLEX (Inside Warehouse & Logistics Exhibition) opening, we had our first inquiry in the bag. The two days in May at the Telford International Centre went on to be the most successful trade show we have attended in terms of deals created at the event itself and immediately afterward."
    Hi-Level Mezzanines Ltd
  • “We thoroughly enjoyed our time at IWLEX. It is a valuable exhibition for companies looking for the highest quality visitors. Visitor numbers may be lower than at other exhibitions, simply because the organisers have done a fantastic job in screening out time-wasters! Everyone who came onto our stand was a motivated buyer and we have had several high-quality leads since the exhibition. We recommend IWLEX to anyone looking for relevant leads within the world of warehousing and logistics. Thank you, Justin and Nairn!”
