Fromm's P328 Battery Powered Tool for Poly Strapping
The P328 is toughest strapping machine yet! The P328 has all new interactions and technologies that will change strapping as you know it. This new banding tool is fast, convenient and top-of-the-line. It does things that simply were not possible before. Using it is a whole new experience.
The P328 can now band small and round packages. The new single base design allows it to squeeze into tight spaces, where the P326 tool would get stuck after pulling the strap tight. Other tools have a separate base under the feed wheel that swing away from the main base to open. In tight spots other tools are impossible to remove after the cycle. But now, the single base on the P328 slides out of tight spots that were impossible before! Only the P380 can band in tighter spots or rounds.
The lever found in previous models has been replaced with a button, making cycling the tool much easier. This improvement in the P328 also means no more broken levers! The tension button pulls the strap tight. In semi-auto mode the tool switches (at set tension) automatically to kick the P328 into weld and cut. The second button is used in manual mode.
The P328 has a smarter way to minimize mistakes.
We believe the tool should do the work, not the operator. Now, the P328 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 P328 is now controlled by its own motor, making sure the weld cools every time before the tool can be removed.
The P328 is an incredibly easy to use bander. Easy transportation around the plant is key when selecting a strapping tool. The P328 allows you to do just that, and more. Allstrap offers a battery upgrade as standard to the 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-328 Fromm battery will last all shift, and maybe all week

The P328 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 to band smaller and round bunks. The P328’s single base makes 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 4-22: The P328 has been a champ in the field. It is very tough, and easy to operate. We suggest the Fromm P328 tool.
