Signode Australia operates a steel strapping manufacturing facility in the NSW country township of Kurri Kurri, two hours north of Sydney.
The facility was commissioned in 2001 and is the only domestic steel strapping facility in Australia.
The plant has the capacity to produce up to 21,000 tonne of steel strapping which is used predominantly in the ferrous and non-ferrous markets.
The core operational process including a primary slitting line which is used to slit full width coils of cold rolled product into mults which will then be slit down to final widths of either 15.9mm, 19mm or 31.7mm.
The slit product is then transferred to the next stage of the process where the straps will be passed through a heat treatment line designed to modify the steel properties of the strap in a tightly controlled environment.
This process enables the product to achieve very high tensile strengths while still maintaining sufficient ductility to ensure the strap retains its integrity even after being tensioned around products in the marketplace.
After the heat treatment process straps are painted and coated with a wax before being wound into coils weighing between 50kg to 450kg.
A quality management system is maintained throughout the process to ensure compliance to specifications and the management of quarantined or non-conforming product.
