B2B Industrial Packaging just introduced the Signode BXT3 battery-operated combination strapping tool. This is the only tool on the market with a variable tension speed. B2B Industrial Packaging President Bill Drake said, “This is a time and money-saving alternative for all organizations that use polypropylene or polyester strapping.”
BXT3 features include:
- Variable tension speed: A simple button that is pressure-sensitive and easy to use.
- Real time indication of tension force: An accurate gauge of the amount of tension being applied in either Newtons or pounds–easily adjustable on the touch pad.

- Strap alignment indication: A visible green/red indication for foolproof strapping alignment.
- 3-color display and acoustic signal for tool status: Helps avoid malfunctions during tensioning, welding, and cutting and alerts when the entire process is finished.

- Full touch display: Everything is touchscreen capable, making it simple to navigate through the adjustable settings.

- BXT3-16 for universal application/13–16 mm
- BXT3-19 for heavy duty application/16–19 mm
