FROMM is a global leader in plastic and steel strapping with manufacturing facilities strategically located in Europe, South America and South East Asia. Our manufacturing plants all use modern extrusion methods and our global Manufacturing Manager ensures that each plant maintains the same exacting standards and methods.
We extrude both smooth and embossed polyester strapping from 9mm to 32mm widths and various densities to suit a wide variety of automatic, semi-automatic and manual strapping equipment.
To meet specific customer requirements we can custom engineer the strapping properties, including elongation and retained tension, which is critical in industries such as food & beverage, paper and baling. Short run customised strapping with different colours and the ability to print on the strapping for clear product identification is also available.
Steel strapping is being rapidly replaced in many industries by polyester strapping. However at FROMM we recommend steel strapping for many applications including high temperature and for very small bundles such as steel, copper or aluminium pipes and tubes.
We have over 50 years’ experience in manufacturing steel strapping tools and we work closely with the best steel strapping manufacturers around the world to offer the correct steel strapping material for the application.
Our range includes standard and high tensile steel strapping in bundle sizes, from 15kg coils up to the 500kg plus jumbo coils which require specialised dispensers.
To complete the strapping range FROMM also offer Polypropylene (PP) strap used in applications such as bundling of newspapers, box strapping in the food industry and general warehouse use to save money on freight.
Through our association with the Engineering Division of the University of Sydney, we undertake rigorous testing of all straps to confirm compliance to standards and specifications and share the results with our customers as needed.
FROMM also works with companies such as Engistics P/L who are a leading authority on load restraint technology. We have undertaken projects to ensure the correct strapping is applied and works with the load restraint for products such as aluminium billets & ingots, steel profiles and sheets. Engistics certify the use of FROMM strapping in conjunction with FROMM equipment.
