How It Works

The XLS Smart Tyer is a 110V machine that twist-ties products inserted into the ring-shaped tying area. The machine can also be adjusted to tie almost any product. Just gather materials into a round or nearly round shape from 1/2 inch diameter up to a maximum of 4-inch diameter.

The onboard PLC also allows for pre-programming of tying tensions and number of twists, along with progressive features for automated system integration.

Plas-Ties will also provide a Vertical or Horizontal Brake depending on your workstation requirements. A wheeled industrial cart is another option. The cart can also provide for easy placement of the XLS for optimal workplace flow and employee satisfaction.
