What's new with the Signode BXT Series Tools?

Advantages BXT3

Stability / Robustness

BXT3 is designed even more robustly to withstand harsh applications and environmental conditions.

Tension release system

Control of tensioning process.

Tension can be released smoothly and without effort at any time.

Operating errors are not possible anymore.

PCB Board

The 2 PCBs of BXT2 were merged into only 1 new PCB.

PCB is placed to a protected spot in the tool.

Weld system

Elimination of operating errors.

Improved reliability of welding.

Easy access for cleaning and maintenance.




Advantage with BXT3 tool

Tool weight

& balance

Lightweight and perfectly balanced tool

Tool slightly nose heavy

Better ergonomics,

less operator fatigue

Stability / Reliability

Drop, dust and moisture proof tool with protected electronic module / battery

Enforced mechanical parts

Drop dust and moisture proof tool with battery protection

Maximum high uptime / stability and longer lifetime


Modular tool build-up, easy access, quick disassembly / assembly, strap dust blow-through vent

Conventional tool build up without mechanical and electronic separation

Less service effort and

easier and faster cleaning

Adjustment / Indication

Full touch display

Touch pad with 7 segment displays

More and clearly visible information for product user

Product features

•Full Touch Display

•Variable tension speed

•Favourite strapping function

•Real time indication

•Colour display for tool information 

•Strap alignment indication

•Strap dust blow-through vent

•Smooth tension release

Soft (PP) strapping function

Simplified operation and

higher process reliability




Variable Banding Tension Speeds
Variable Tension Speeds:
  • Simplified operation and higher Process reliability
  • Improved control of tensioning process by the operator
  • Slow start-up for arranging packaged goods / fixing up edge protectors
  • Inching operation (Cautious approach to correct tension force for the product)
  • Tension force increases according to finger pressure on tension button
Real time indication of tension force
  • World’s first strapping tool with real time indication of tension force
  • Higher process reliability and less operating errors
  • Accurate indication of tension in Newton (N) or Pound (lbs)
  • Shows operator the true tension force during tensioning process
  • Indication of the adjustable range of tension and the selected tension force (filled out bars)
  • Indication of the true tension force Example: Full bar range is 2100 N (set value), applied tension force is about 1200 N (filled out bars)


    Favorite Strapping Settings 

    • Simplified and quicker operation
    • For various recurring packaged goods, with different setting requirements (heavy / light)
    • For the use of different straps PP / PET with same width
    Technical solution
    • Quick switching between standard and favourite setting (Tension force, welding time, operating mode)
    Strap Alignment Indicator
    • Direct visibility of correctly / incorrectly inserted strap
    • Avoidance of malfunctions during tensioning/welding/cutting processes
    • Avoidance of low seal quality (increased seal quality)
    Technical solution:
    • Red indication if strap is not correctly inserted in the strap guide
    BXT Alignment Indicator
    status-indicator 3 Color Status Display and Audible Signal
    • Finished strapping process directly visible and audible
    • Avoidance of malfunctions during tensioning/welding/cutting processes
    • Avoidance of low seal quality (increased seal quality)

    Full Touch Display

    bxt full touch display

    Easy Cleaning with Blow-Through Feature

    blow through

    Available Accessories
