New at the Eastey booth at PACK EXPO Las Vegas was its EXS-100 semi-automatic tabletop strapping machine, designed to apply a plastic strap around overfilled and heavy-weight packages to prevent them from opening during handling and transit. Given its bottom-seal design, the EXS-100 is recommended for low- to medium-volume users that need additional security beyond case taping.

According to Eastey, operating the strapping machine is easy and can be learned in minutes. The machine features an open-cabinet design, making it easy to view and change the plastic strapping. Additionally, the EXS-100 feature electronic tension control that allows the user to adjust the proper tension for a range of packages, and the heated strap-weld sealing system ensures a secure strap.

The system comes standard with four locking casters that allow for easy transportation within the facility. It is pre-configured to an industry-standard height of 30 in., which Eastey said makes it a “comfortable fit for most packaging environments.”
