The RQ-8N2 can interface with any fully automatic strapping machine, including the RQ-8N1 and RQ-8N1W, to apply strap lengthwise without adding a bundle turning equipment. The RQ-8N2 can be used alone as well. It is one of the fastest machines in its class. Utilizing the new high speed sealing head, this cross strapping system is capable of up to 30 bundles per minute. With a detachable reel unit, the cross strapping system fits even in narrow line configurations.
