Metal Strapping Air Tools

P380 – First Air Tool for Round Objects

The Fromm P380 is the first strapping tool in the market that has become popular for strapping round and irregular objects. It is a pneumatic tool and is light in weight. Industries that need to pack loads of steel bars, tubes and other round packages have found the P380 to be an ideal tool.

The P380 is an easy to use tool and simple to operate. It comes with a suspension bracket and objects can be counter balanced vertically or horizontally. The P380s improved version is even better than the previous versions where the feedwheel and the welder were together. Over the years many changes were made and in the current version of the tool, the feedwheel and the welder have been separated. The feedwheel has been moved behind the welder, and therefore the foot under the strapping has become much smaller.

Due to the smaller foot, it is easier to pull the strapping from under the tight strapping.

When compared to other strapping tools, where there is a base under the feedwheel that swings out from the strapping. This was not possible for round applications. But the P380 has solved this problem and has now become the staple tool for pipes bars and other round packages.
