Fromm A480 Pneumatic Pusher Steel Strapping Tool
The pneumatic A480 Fromm combination steel strapping tool is used with 1/2”, 5/8”, and 3/4” steel strapping. Due to its low weight in comparison to other pneumatic push style combination tools, the Fromm A480 does not have to be suspended. This permits mobile operation. Ideal for strapping tubes, wire coils and all kinds of small bundles, the A480 is a handy and popular tool in numerous industries. This tool uses push-seals which are ideal for round and narrow packages. The seal is pushed by the tool with the steel strap threaded through to pull the tension.
The A480 is the most convenient pneumatic strapping tool on the market because of its light weight and compact design. Not only that, but the fact that the foot plate is relatively small allows this tool to strap unique, round and awkward packages because it can squeeze into a tight place. Fromm has always been concerned with the ergonomics of their tools, and the A480 is no different, offering a user friendly interface. The A480 guarantees a strong joint above the ASTM requirements. To account for different banding, the distance between the roller and the pad can be adjusted, as well as the cutter depth.
