The power of elements
The strapping head VS12-L-LD proves its elemental strength and competence in two respects: On the one hand, it is pneumatically driven and generates an impressive tensioning force of up to 10,000 N thanks to air pressure.
On the other hand, joining takes place by the patented TITANARG® TIG non-contact welding. This method provides a high joint breaking load at minimal wear and tear. However, the powerful welding process and the high force exerted by air pressure are not all that distinguishes this head.
It works also extremely fast and impresses with a high cycle sequence. Add to that the unbeatable advantages of pneumatics: The VS12-L-LD is outright stable and works reliably even under tough industrial conditions.
The VS12-L-LD processes steel strapping in widths of 13,16 and 19 mm. Therefore, this head is the robust workhorse for light duty strapping applications.
