Description
The steel industry currently bundles steel products for shipping with razor sharp steel strapping that can cause lacerations to workers’ arms, hands, and faces. Using polyester woven strapping is a safer and stronger solution, but it is difficult to correctly tension loads that have a round or irregular shape because polyester strap tensioners are designed to work on flat surfaces. The goal of this project is to design a polyester strap tensioner that will work on round or irregularly shaped loads while remaining easy and efficient for workers to operate.
