Hot Chamber Punch provides increased hanger hole strength over mechanical punches, and can lower your film costs.

The HCP  is widely used in the packaging industry for punching strong, neat holes in polypropylene bags on vertical baggers. The HCP burns and cauterizes the hole, providing extra strength and helping prevent unnecessary tearing when hung. It works with Lako’s standard and MSD seal jaws. Some of the advantages the HCP provides:

  • Annealing the area around the hole increases its strength, so lighter, less expensive film can be used without sacrificing on-rack strength.
  • Lako’s patented design eliminates heat transfer from the punch to the seal jaw, so there are no hot spots in the seal area.
  • The center of the hole stays attached to the bag.
  • Lako’s HCP maintains constant punch tip temperature, independent of load or seal jaw temperature. This ensures efficiency and longer performance.
  •  Standard sizes include 3/8”, 7/16” round, and “Sombrero”.
  • Lako’s Digital Hot Chamber Punch Control provides consistent temperature control to the punch.
  • Re-stocking management. Lako keeps extra HCP stock on hand for last-minute needs, and also offers custom re-stocking programs to avoid any down-time. Click here to contact us for more information on these and our Just-in-Time delivery programs.
  • Our lead management, engineering, and sales teams, with an average of 20 years’ experience, provide complete engineering and design services for tough-to-solve sealing problems, regardless of where they originate. This is true for all our products, and we are proud to share this with our customers.
