The D-53Y2 is a new addition to the D-53 series. A side seal semi-automatic strapping machine is used in extremely hostile environments where moisture and debris would damage a conventional tabletop machine. Designed for the food, lumber, brick and tile industries, the body is coated with rust resistant paint. Internal components are standard as found on the D-53. The strap dispenser is located on top of the machine to protect the strap in the harsh environments.
