FROMM strapping heads have been designed for automatic heavy duty industrial strapping installations. For use in a wide range of industrial applications our strapping heads can be installed at the top, at the side or in a horizontal plane of a fully automatic strapping machine. Our MH600 / MH610 heads can process polyester up to a width of 19 mm and a thickness of 1.53 mm. The heads provide the perfect alternative converting heavy steel strapping applications to PET strapping.
