Our strapping for fully-auto machine is straight (if you “hang” a lengthof it, it will not have a noticeable curve, or a noticeable “sloppy” side, whencompared with the strapping some of our competitors offer).
It is the correct thickness for the job.
The thickness is even across the length and width, so the machine alwaysfeeds the strap properly.
Having a rectangular profile means that the edges are not sharp, so theydo not cut into the components of the machine. Sharp-edged convex strappingwill get lodged in the grooves which it cuts.
The edges of the strapping (of the grade for which I have quoted you),are smooth so they do not abrade the machine.
It has enough tread, so it is properly gripped for feeding and fortensioning.
The mixture of material used, is ideal for melting and sealing quicklyand permanently.
Locally made strapping will not have the same mix, but at least all theother requirements need to be met before you use local strapping in anyfully-auto machine.
[The strapping we supply ismade in Taiwan, where the best material mixing formula and technique is in use]
When it comes to the strapping for semi-auto machine, the standard issimilar, except that the strapping can be slightly less straight, and the edgesdo not need to be smooth, they can be uneven, because the machine design isdifferent.
