Recent Comments from a Few of Our Customers 

Hershey Logo

“I am impressed by Lako’s continuous dedication to research and design for customer-specific applications. I presented Lako with the opportunity to help my company find a mechanical solution to an industry-wide problem—air retention in gusseted bags that are packed lying down in the case. They researched and designed four specific jaw serration patterns to test in the lab with different film structures, temperatures, sealing times and pressures to identify the optimal jaw set. Although this was not implemented due to a different business priority, it was a thorough feasibility study.”
- Megan Reid, The Hershey Company

Herr's Food Logo

“I wanted to reach out to let you know working with you guys on the quick release jaws for our TNA and Hayssen packaging machines has been a real pleasure. We are truly impressed with what your team of engineers came up with. Swapping out the our standard jaws to a hole punch jaw has made things so much easier and using a lot less down time. Our production and maintenance team could not be happier with the ending results. You guys from Lako have made yourselves available for us at all times and were always keeping in touch with us on how things were going with the new pair of jaws. “
-  David Perry, Herr's Food, Inc.

Goetze's Candy Company Logo

“We are currently using a combination of a steel jaw that comes in contact with a polymer jaw… so far Lako’s PSD seal jaws have proven to be easier to keep clean and quieter. In time we are hopeful to save money by only replacing the polymer insert when it wears out… and to change all our machines over to this set up which should provide significant savings.”
-  Wesley Shearer, Goetze’s Candy Company, Inc.

Gilster Mary Lee Logo

“Lako Tool has provided us with innovative and cost saving  seal bar designs for many years.... Their entire team is a first class operation.   Lako Engineers helped us resolve a serious issue with pour spout resalable pouches…  There was an immediate on site response from Lako with engineering solutions to help us solve the problem. We were able to standardize the redesign and incorporate the changes across multiple plants.”
- Allan Crowder, Gilster Mary Lee Corporation

Campos Packaging Logo

“At Campos Packaging we use LAKO TOOLS when one of our customers is in need of a Hot Chamber Punch or Horizontal Sealing Jaw. After testing our film with various serration designs, the Engineering Department quickly responds with a detailed drawing for my approval. The machine shop produces beautifully machined components that are easy to install and operate flawlessly. When LAKO handles our sealing needs from start to finish, the results are a great seal at a reduced cost.  With over 40 years of experience in the Packaging Industry, we know our equipment is only as good as the seals they produce. That being said, it is with pleasure that I am highly recommending LAKO TOOLS to anyone in need of replacing or upgrading their Sealing Jaws or Hole Punch. “
-  Andrew Campos, Campos Packaging

Barcelona Nut Company Logo

“Here at Barcelona Nut Co. for years before I arrived they had multiple sealing issues, as shell peanuts, sunflower kernels and the like create a dusty environment which makes sealing packages difficult. With the help of Lako Tool's excellent engineers I was able to redesign and incorporate the new jaw configuration to moving the heater placements for a better hole punch design and a new tooth design for a better seal. Since putting the new design on all our machines our sealing issues have decreased by 70%. Cost effective, efficient, excellent products, a good co. to work with - Highly recommend. “
-  Russell R., Barcelona Nut Company

FabWa Logo

“I just wanted to let you know that these new sealing jaws are amazing. I put them on, made some minor adjustments, and we started production. My leakage problem that we were having went away immediately and the packs are so much better and more ridged. After dialing in the correct heat, the plastic build-up problem we had before has also been eliminated. I just wanted to thank you and the team at LAKO for a great job and getting them to me ahead of schedule so I could complete a large run. “
-  Joe Clark, Fabwa, LLC
