Why Automate Your Strapping Systems

In the modern fast-paced industrial world, the key to staying ahead of the competition is efficiency. One area where a company can significantly boost their efficiency is their strapping processes. Whether it’s hay, wool, timber, bricks, or anything else that needs to be secured for shipping, strapping is a crucial step in many industries. Unfortunately, manual strapping methods just can’t keep up in the modern world. So, join us to learn more about why you should automate your strapping systems.  


Using automated strapping systems can dramatically increase your company’s efficiency and help streamline your shipping operations. Automated strapping machines can strap pallets, bundles, and even white goods in a fraction of the time it would take to do it manually. Whether it’s steel or PET strapping, TITAN has automated strapping solutions that will vastly improve the efficiency of your strapping.


Consistency is important in all parts of business. Your clients and customers want to know what they can expect from you, and they need to be able to rely on it. Manual strapping methods are unfortunately prone to human error. Whether it’s inconsistent tensioning or poorly placed straps, even the most experienced workers can make mistakes. These mistakes can result in damage to your product during shipping and potentially hurt relationships with your customers.

On the other hand, automated strapping machines provide consistent tensioning and precise placement of straps every time, time after time. Automating your strapping system is the best way to ensure your products are always securely strapped to minimise the risk of damage during transport or storage.

Reduced operating costs

While there is an initial investment when it comes to implementing automated strapping solutions, the long-term savings can be substantial for your company. By reducing the manual labour requirements for your strapping your workers time can be reallocated to other places, helping to increase production. Additionally, as your business grows and scales, having an automated strapping solution will help avoid bottlenecks at the shipping or storage stage as automated strapping systems can easily be scaled as needed. Finally, automated strapping machines often require less maintenance than manual methods, further reducing ongoing operating costs.

The cost involved in automating your strapping solution may initially be off-putting, but long term it will easily make back its cost and more. The real question is if you can afford to not automate your strapping?


Manual strapping can pose safety risks to workers, straps snapping under tension, heavy loads shifting, and other risks are all present when using manual strapping solutions. Automated strapping solutions help mitigate these risks by reducing the manual labour required. Manual lifting or shifting and handling of straps are all minimised with automated strapping systems. If you integrate your automated strapping system with your existing manufacturing process you could eliminate the need for handling in strapping altogether.

The safety benefits extend beyond your warehouse or manufacturing location too. With properly tensioned, placed, and secured straps the loads are safer during transportation. This is very important as under the heavy vehicle national law, the chain of responsibility begins with you. If a load prepared by you becomes loose or dangerous during transportation you can be held liable. An automated strapping system will consistently and reliably affix the straps correctly to meet regulatory requirements. 

You’re also minimising risks for your customers at the end point by making it safer for them to handle. Your customers will appreciate that you take such precautions and it will build trust in their eyes.

Employee safety is always the top priority. Help protect your employees from potential injuries and increase workplace safety by automating your strapping systems.
