> The toughest strapping machine yet.
The P329 has all new interactions and technologies that will change strapping as you know it. This new tool is fast, convenient and top-of-the-line. It does things that simply weren’t possible before. Using it is a whole new experience.
> Entirely new ways to strap.
Like never before, the P329 can band small and round packages. Its new single base design allows it to squeeze into tight spaces, where before the tool would have gotten stuck after pulling the strap tight. Other tools have a seperate base under the feedwheel that can not open, making it impossible to remove the tool. But now, the single base slides out of tight spots that were impossible before!
The lever in previous models has been removed, making cycling the tool much easier. The tension buttom pulls the strap tight, and releasing at set tension automatically kicks the P329 into weld and cut. The second button is only used in manual mode.
> A smarter way to minimize mistakes.
We believe the tool should do the work, not the operator. Now, the P329 tool does not allow for banding mistakes at the joint. The weakest spot on the strap loop is the weld, so it is critical to make the weld as strong as possible. With good strapping, a joint efficiency of 75% - 90% is typical. The welding mechanism in the P329 is now controlled by its own motor, making sure the weld cools every time before the tool can be removed.
> An incredibly easy to use bander.
Easy transportation around the plant is key when selecting a strapping tool. The P329 allows you to do just that, and more. Allstrap offers a battery upgrade to an exclusive 5 amp hour battery, for a longer lasting charge. Combining the 18 volt lithium battery with a powerful and efficient brushless motor means the P-329 Fromm battery will last all shift, and maybe all week

The P329 is hands down the best strapping tool. You need it on your packaging line. The single base makes it easier to use, and gives the ability for smaller and round bunks. We expect the single base will make it more resistant to damage when dropped, making this one tough tool. Other tools have a major liability built into the weld cycle, they depend on the operator to wait the couple seconds for the weld to cool. This tool holds the weld till it sets, and the dedicated motor releases for the operator to remove. There is no chance the operator can pull the tool off with a hot weld. Allstrap's tool repair department finds almost 1% of welds are damaged by operators not letting the weld cool properly. That 1% statistic is significant when your regular strapping operator is out, and the temporary replacement sends out packages with non-cooled welds. Now, no matter who's banding, the weld will bee 100% every time. We suggest you buy this tool!
Update 10-19: With the release of the P329S, we now have a new favorite HD strapping tool. The P329S shares all the mechanical parts with the P329, but adds a touchscreen. We have seen it in the field for 6 months now, and do not have any broken touchscreens! The screen is protected in the new Fromm bander, which will keep it from getting damaged. The P329S adds the option of full automatic mode. With the press of one button, the tool runs tension, and flips automatically to weld and cut. Taking the P329 two button push down to a one button push on the S series really makes it fast when your banding similar products up. Both tools will be sold, now you can take your pick. We generally like the P329S more!
