Rebar tying tools are made to minimize the labor and time involved in tying rebar. Before power rebar tier tools came along the process was entirely manual which took significantly longer and posed many more health risks to workers.
Rebar tying tool applications:
- Precast and preformed plants and yards
- Road and bridge construction
- Electrical conduits
- Radiant heating tubes
- Razor wires and retention pools
- Poured concrete foundations
Why choose a power rebar tier tool?
Battery powered tying tools have lower health risks. Manually tying rebar involves a lot of repetitive motion which puts reinforcing iron workers at a higher risk of developing muscular and skeletal disorders in their wrists, hands, fingers, and shoulders. According to a study conducted by the NIOSH the use of battery powered tools reduces the risk of developing hand, wrist or elbow disorders. When battery powered tiers are used with an extension arm they will also help reduce the risk of back injuries. The ability to operate the rebar tying machine with one hand leaves your other hand free to hold rebar or other materials.
Cost savings are another important factor. A good quality power tool is much faster than tying by hand. Power rebar tiers also use tie wire more efficiently which reduces waste and expenses.
Finally, speed is an important consideration in choosing the right rebar tying tools. Using a power tool is at least 5 times faster than tying by hand. Workers will be far more productive with the right tools in their hands which means less man hours necessary to complete a job.
