Tie-Matic HD 78

New and Improved with the combined features of the 608 and the 608ST models. Plasties twist tie machines are widely used by companies around the world to speed up production and achieve consistent, secure twist ties on poly bags and bundles of wires. If you are twist tying over 100 pieces a day, an automatic tying machine will help you to work more efficiently, increase your productivity, and have less wrist fatigue. Need to bundle electrical wires? Works great in electronic wire harness manufacturing.

The portable, efficient Tie-Matic increases productivity while eliminating employee complaints and fatigue by working five times faster than tedious hand tying. See a comparison chart by clicking here. A wide choice of industrial semi-automated models are available. The HD78 handles up to 7/8" are found in many companies where wires are bundled or hanked and larger bags that need to be sealed.  For up to 3/8" click here for the HD38, for up to 5/8" capacity click HD58.  The new Heavy Duty series are capable of speeds up to 60 ties per minute.
