Fromm A383 Pneumatic Sealless Steel Strapping Combination Tool
The Fromm A383 is the toughest (and heaviest) sealless strapping tool on the market. This tool is suitable for 1.25" wide high tensile steel strap. The A383 tool has two-button, one to tension, the other to punch its own seal. Due to the HD mechanics of the A383 tool, the steel, aluminum, and lumber packaging industries have seen a great benefit in using sealless combo tools. The A383 tool is ideal for flat packages and packages that are otherwise difficult to strap. It pulls high tension and it is suitable for even the most extreme working conditions. This A-383 tool can strap in full automatic and semi- automatic modes with the choice of four different tensioning levels to suit varying applications.
The Fromm A383 tool has a few features that makes it a stand out among other sealless pneumatic tools. This Fromm tool alone can pull over 3,300 pounds of tension, which is drastically more than other tools of its kind. The A383 tool is heavy duty and can withstand harsh working conditions with a design that can handle many application types. Due to the pneumatic component, uniform tensioning can be ensured from package to package, reducing strapping error and delivery damage. The MicroLock sealless system adds greater seal security as well. It weighs 53 pounds, so it is recommended to suspend this tool from a bracket for stationary applications.
Some people hesitate in abandoning metal seals. However, sealless tools are quickly overtaking metal seals. The average sealless joint is 80% efficient, which is better then the 70% efficiency with seals. From a financial point, sealless tools can save up to ten percent when the cost of supplying metal seals is eliminated from the budget.

We like the A383 if your going to stay with steel strapping. But many people can switch to a plastic strapping which is much easier to use, and safer. Today’s plastic tools are incredible, you should switch if you can (and most people can). Look at the bottom of the 1 1/4” plastic page for a video of bunks getting beat up with HD plastic banding on them.
