Signode RCNS2-114 Pistol Grip Pneumatic Sealer

The Signode RCNS2-114, which is popularly known as a pistol grip sealer, is a pneumatic strapping tool designed to be used with 1-1/4 inch steel strapping. The tool will apply single reverse notch seal joint. It is ideally suited for use with high tensile strapping. It features minimal number of wear parts, which means longer lifespan. The sealer has been designed for achieving high level of production on heavier steel strapping. Operators will find it easier to use for strapping seals for achieving high level of production or when they need to seal in difficult positions.

Configuration & Applications

As already mentioned, the pistol grip design of the RCNS2-114 is its unique feature. Due to this ergonomic design, it is also considered to be among the most convenient tools to use with a single hand. The entire tool casing is designed in metal alloy. This helps ensure safer, more efficient and reliable operation even in the harshest of strapping conditions. The RCNS2 has another version, which is designed for use with 3/4 inch straps.

The pneumatic strapping sealer is most commonly used for applications including the following:

  • Installation of street signs
  • Constructing oil drilling platforms
  • Applications in water treatment facilities
  • Applications in chemical units
  • Installing wires and cables
  • Securing cables in ships and boats

Technical Specs

The Signode RCNS2-114 is designed for use with high tensile steel strapping of width ranging between 3/4 inch (19mm) and 1-1/4 inch (32mm) and thickness 0.025 inch (0.63mm) to 0.031 inch (1 mm). It can help achieve push seal and snap seal for high tensile 1-1/4 inch steel straps. This lightweight sealer weighs just 6.1 pounds.

This is a sophisticated, strapping tool from Signode that helps in reducing most of the hard work involved in strapping different types of products. Thanks to its pneumatic property, it helps in saving time and in reducing user fatigue.

Because the RCNS2-114 is only a sealer, it will only apply the metal seal. Therefore, the operator will need a tensioner for pulling the steel strapping tight before the seal is applied. It is recommended to use 2 feedwheel tensioners which are compatible with the sealer. Signode PN2-114 and Fromm A452 are considered to be the ideal tensioner machines that help in completing the strapping process efficiently. A business can choose any of these matching tools, as they are almost equivalent in their performance.

Signode PNSC-2 – A Reliable Strapping Option for Irregular Shaped Packages

Pneumatic push-type combination tools come with several unique features. It is the air power which does all the magic, when it comes to tensioning, sealing and cutting of the strap. And then the push-type seal with overlapping flanges further strengthens the entire process.PNSC2s-275x245 (1)

The PNSC-2 is a pneumatic push-type combination tool which is widely used for steel strapping. Because of its unique and helpful features, the machine is declared one of the most popular pneumatic tools in the Signode family. Thus the manufacturer has given special attention to PNSC tools and come up with three different models to support varied band widths.

Significant features of PNSC-2:

  • PNSC 2-12 to be used with 1/2″ x 0.017-0.023″ strap dimension and 0.5 Inch push type seal
  • PNSC 2-58 to be used with 5/8″ x 0.017-0.023″ dimension and 0.625 Inch push type seal
  • PNSC 2-34 to be used with 3/4″ x 0.017-0.025″ strap dimension and 0.75 Inch normal/heavy duty push seal

Being designed for Apex plus or Magnus steel straps, this PNSC tool is known to pull up to 700 lbs of tension. With 3/4″ strapping, the tension can be as high as 1000 lbs. Then the tool is extremely light, weighing around 9.5 lbs; so it can be operated easily by moving

It is a wise idea to shift to PNSC-2:

It is indeed a wise idea, if your strapping need includes round or irregular shaped loads. Few reasons which are especially compelling:

  • User friendly operation with press of two buttons
  • Pneumatic operation guarantees very fast cycle time and that too without any strapping error
  • The single reverse notch seal joint guarantees maximum joint stability

When it comes to PNSC-2, buyers just can’t find any flaws. No matter how difficult the sealing position is or how harsh the working condition is, this tool is more than equipped to handle any adversities. Operating the tool is indeed easy and you don’t need to invest time and money for training the operator. Strapping can be started immediately after purchasing the tool.
