Banding together: the best way to bundle
This white paper from Wexler Packaging Products outlines the ways in which banding offers energy conservation, material savings and waste reduction. In addition, find out which new enhancements are occurring all the time, making banding a state-of-the-art method for enhancing a packaging operation.
Banding—which can bundle or multi-pack products, keep containers closed or even ensure that products remain unitized during manufacturing—enjoys a two-decade history in its modern incarnation, but the best looks yet to come for this time-tested method.
Plus, the technique offers even more than those benefits, addressing such up-to-the-minute concerns as energy conservation, material savings and waste reduction. In addition, new enhancements are occurring all the time, making banding a truly state-of-the-art method for enhancing a packaging operation.
Banding is a lot of things, but differs from strapping, though the terms often are erroneously used interchangeably.
Strapping is mainly used for shipping or very rugged applications. The hard rigid plastic of strapping can easily dig into a product’s corners, especially in heavy-tension applications.
