The JL-109 is a fully automated system for cross-strapping banknotes in one pass. Today’s requirement for higher security, less human intervention and secure cross strapping are very pressing. The Unit, using plastic tape of 12 mm, double-cross straps a bundle of 1000 banknotes in less that 20 seconds. In addition, not only does it apply three straps (one along and two across), but it bonds the three straps together. The security of the strap is high and any tampering with the strap is visible.

The enhance the versatility of the JL-109, a comprehensive and easy to menu offers the operator adjustments of all the parameters of strapping. The three individual tape arches, the adjustable settings of tape tension and bundling heat, as well as the selection of the pattern of strapping (double or single cross-strapping, double or single strapping, etc) make the unit ideal for strapping banknote bundles to parcels, with the highest possible security and speed.

The automatically adjustable press that maintains a standard pressure to the banknotes guarantees the same dimensions of the “bricks” irrespective of the condition of the notes. With the JL-109, all “bricks” with the same denomination have the same dimensions.

The JL-109 uses three rolls of tape (12 mm or 14 mm options) that are stored inside the bottom part of the unit. The wide openings of the lower covers of the machine enable easy loading of the tapes, without the need of special tools or equipment.

The JL-109 automatic banknote strapping machine uses instant heating technology that ensures zero waiting time, high efficiency and is energy saving, as the consumption from 300 Watts, during strapping, drops to less than 25 Watts in stand-by mode. The operator simply selects the tension of the strap, the length of the bundling and the bundling temperature. The microprpcessor controller takes care of the rest. An LCD display shows any problem or malfunction with an easy to remember error code.
