Hot Needle Perforators

The hot needle perforating system is by far the most popular method for perforating flexible substrates for the food and plant packaging industries. Perforated packaging is well-suited for the food industry keeping food fresher longer due to its moisture exchanging/breathable properties. AFS produces a superior product for the following reasons:

  • Modular construction of high-quality needle segments allows for rapid product change, especially with the optional off-line, pre-heating / cooling frame.
  • Operating temperature, needle depth, and other processing parameters can be set, recorded and controlled from one user-friendly, multi-function control display.
  • Operator-friendly with high safety standards
  • German engineering and quality – US sales, service and support
