Title: Strapping apparatus

Abstract: In a strapping apparatus for strapping goods with a band, which apparatus has a tensioning device which is operatively connected to a tensioning drive and is intended for tensioning the band, a welding device for sealing two layers of a band, and a plurality of rewinding locks for fixing the band on the strapping apparatus, highest possible efficiency is to be achieved. The invention proposes providing the welding device with a lever (91), on the one end of which an eccentric (94) which is operatively connected to a motor shaft acts for the purpose of transmitting an eccentric movement, with regard to the motor shaft of the closure device, to the lever (91), and to the other end of which a welding shoe (86) is coupled, the lever (91) being mounted pivotably at a bearing point (90), so that the movement of the eccentric results in an oscillating reciprocating movement of the welding shoe. As a result, it is possible to reduce the power loss occurring in the friction welding operation.
