Specialist for expansion
The VK10-K120-19B is the exotic member of the family. Its technology is based on the proven features of the VK10 series.
However, this model does not need a tension motor resulting in an extremely slim design. No tension motor - how is that supposed to work? The VK10-K120-19B is the specialist for the fibre industry and has a special head for strapping pressed bales.
These bales develop strong expansionary forces; the strap tension is produced by the strapped product itself. Anyone working in the fibre industry and dealing with such bales daily knows that the acting forces are so enormous that they demand maximum joint strength.
The VK10-K120-19B shows superior and reliable performance even under high pressure.
