Provides increased hanger hole strength over mechanical punches, and can lower your film costs.

The Hot Chamber Punch (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.

  • Standard sizes included 3/8", 5/16", 7/16" round, and Sombrero / EuroSlot punch

  • Digital HCP Control provides consistent temperature control to the punch

  • Extra HCP stock is on-hand for last-minute needs

  • Custom re-stocking programs are available to avoid downtime

Waterproof Hot Hole Punch and Control

As concerns about food and product safety increase, executives and line managers need to ensure comprehensive wash-downs do not compromise daily operations. LAKO developed the IP55 Waterproof Hot Hole Punch for Vertical Form Fill Seal Baggers to withstand wash-downs without having to be removed. 

The IP55 is a version of the Hot Chamber Punch designed to maintain the excellent benefits of hot hole punching in a wash-down environment.

  • Totally sealed the IP55 is designed to eliminate failures after preventative wash-downs

  • Avoid possible re-start delays due to removal and re-installation, electrical shorts due to water leakage, or other surprises.

  • Compatible with most packaging machines


Rated IP55, NEMA3 to protect from dust and water jets

NOTE: IP55 Hot Hole Punch must be used with the IP55 Waterproof Control
