Configuration & Applications
There are very few tools on the market that cater to the 2-inch steel strapping needs, and the PN2-2 is one of the most popular ones in the list. This tensioner has been engineered with a special nose that pushes against the seal.
The pneumatic tensioner is the perfect tool for almost all kinds of loads and packages. But care should be taken when working with pull metal rounds and packages that can easily get compressed.
The tensioner is designed to be used with heavy-duty 2-inch steel strapping. It weighs around 8.1 pounds and generates peak tension of 1,600 pounds. There are very few pneumatic tensioners that can work with 2-inch straps, but this tool helps you complete your jobs easily and without any efforts.
It can be used for completing heavy duty applications while saving time and effort. As the PN2-2 is a pneumatic tensioner, a sealer and cutter are also required for completing the task. The NS-250-65L from Signode is considered as the ideal sealer to match the tensioner for a wide range of 2-inch steel strapping needs. It allows applying a single crimp seal efficiently and effectively. It can however also work well with manual sealers.
The unique thing about the pneumatic tensioner tool is that it is equally suited for heavy duty and light duty applications. This has been made possible thanks to its durable build and capability to generate low amount of force.
- The pneumatic tensioner is perfect for use in industries where it is more convenient and economical to use standalone tools.
- It is perfect for light duty applications, especially when working with easily-compressible packages that need care.
As a standalone tool, the PN2-2 is a pneumatic tensioner that is not suited for larger and tools. But it is the perfect strapping tool for loads that need to be packaged with care. This makes it the ideal 2-inch strapping tensioner for applications where a lot of delicate touch is required. However, it can still be used in heavy duty environments where a strapping tool is required for continual operation.
