MAX USA Corp. Introduces the World’s First Stand-up Battery Powered Rebar Tying Tool


MAX USA Corp. launched the world’s 1st stand-up battery powered rebar tying tool, the TwinTier RB401T-E. The RB401T-E is designed to reduce back strain when tying rebar for concrete slabs.

The principal benefit of the RB401T-E is its ergonomic construction. Its extended frame allows ironworkers to tie rebar while standing upright. The tool’s automatic contact mechanism/switch automatically forms a tie when pushed down over a rebar intersection. There is no trigger to pull. Users can adjust the handles to 2 positions, to find the most comfortable position for their height. The long nose attachment allows the tool to glide into rebar intersections with minimal effort from the operator. All of these features work together to reduce instances of back strain and the development of musculoskeletal injuries for ironworkers.

The RB401T-E can tie #3 x #3 up to #6 x #6 rebar combinations for a variety of applications including, but not limited to, road & bridge decks, industrial foundations, commercial floors, and water tanks.

Like other tools in the TwinTier family, the RB401T-E’s special attributes include its faster tying speed, a reduction in wire consumption, and a short wire tie.  The RB401T-E also uses the same battery and TW1061T tie wire as the RB441T and RB611T handheld TwinTiers. TW1061T tie wire is available in Black Steel, Poly-Coated, Electro.-Galvanized, Stainless Steel and Buy America options.

MAX innovated the world’s first battery powered rebar tying tool in 1993 and has continued to enhance the technology over the last 27 years.  MAX TwinTiers are available through concrete and rental dealers in North and South America. MAX USA CORP. is headquartered in Plainview, NY, and is owned by MAX CO., LTD. which is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. MAX has been recognized as a market leader in the quality manufacturing of tools for over 70 years. MAX has several divisions employing more than 2,000 people worldwide, including 200 R&D engineers.
