How it Works

Plas-Ties manufactures the Poly Tie-Matic HD38 Machine in the USA and constructs it from a durable, all-metal frame. The HD+ Series wraps and twist ties material to close bags, bundle products, secure wires, contain cables and more.

Semi-automatic operation can deliver up to 60 tied bags or bundles per minute with minimal effort. To trigger the tying mechanism, insert the bundle at the throat opening (3/8″) for a perfect twist-tied product. 2-1/2 full twists of tie material secure all bundles and bags. Also, the Production Counter tracks usage and accountability for the upkeep of daily quotas.

Plas-Ties offers Factory Training customized to your needs and budget to ensure your staff will be proficient, safe, and primed to increase your ROI. We also provide extensive technical support through complimentary online manuals, demo videos, and phone support.

Our Tustin, California factory has a huge inventory of parts. We can offer next-day delivery options. Also, sometimes in-house servicing is inevitable. Take advantage of our Loaner Program. We’ll provide a loaner unit while your machine is being serviced.
