A banding machine uses paper tape or plastic film to wrap a number of items together with a band up to 3 inches wide. Stand alone or table-top varieties are available to accomodate your business needs. The types of items mostly suitable for banding are those that misalign easily, such as paper money, reams of paper, envelopes, labels, etc. Commercial items benefit from banding when a business sells a number of individual items as a pack, such as pharmaceutical products, plastic food utensils and food products. A modern banding machine has generic features across the manufacturing range, and uses the same operating principles.
