Binding tie wires has always been time consuming and exhausting so far.
Now it is possible to tie up to 1,000 knots per hour with Wacker Neuson’s new automatic
rebar tier, and that continuously over longer periods of time.
Not only does the wire binder step up the working speed when compared to conventional methods for tying rebar with a pair of pliers.
Also improves productivity thanks to the unit’s outstanding ergonomics.
The operator can work in an upright and easy posture, the strain above all in wrist and fingers is reduced considerably.
One-hand operation: The unit can be operated in any position with one hand only. The second hand is
always available for parallel applications, such as holding reinforcing bars in position.

EuroTest award for Wacker Neuson rebar tier
Munich, April 20, 2010, Wacker Neuson receives award from BG Bau for DF 16’s outstanding contribution to health and safety.
BG Bau, the statutory accident insurance and prevention association for the German construction industry, has awarded the EuroTest prize to Wacker Neuson’s DF 16 rebar tier in acknowledgement of its outstanding contribution to health and safety.
Outstanding ergonomics for fast results In its award statement, BG Bau praised the DF 16 for “making rebar tying a significantly easier
job, raising health and safety levels for steel fixers while at the same time increasing productivity”.
The association also commended the design and ergonomic workflow, saying it enabled any operator to achieve consistently tight, high quality knots.
The DF 16 allows operators to work standing upright in a healthy position and also reduces the stress exerted on fingers, wrists and
At the same time, the DF 16 gets the job done faster than any other conventional rebar tying
It also enables operators to maintain this fast pace, whereas working with pliers rapidly
The knots produced by the DF 16 are of a consistently high quality even when operators are working at high speeds.
Since it is entirely mechanical, the sturdy device is ready for use at any time.
In contrast to electrical tiers, operators do not have to contend with downtime for battery charging or power supply issues.
Alongside conventional steel fixing, the DF 16 is also ideally suited to concrete core activation. This efficient and cost-effective form of HVAC involves fixing heating pipes to rebar, a job for which the DF 16 is perfectly suited.
