The Punch Machine™ is based on HPC's "Standard of the Industry" Original Blitz™ code machine making it the most versatile punch machine on the market! Its innovative design is so revolutionary that it was awarded a U.S. Patent. It is completely portable and punches accurate keys by code quickly and effortlessly. It is extremely easy to change from one manufacturer to another because depth and space adjustments are not required.
The code cards have depth and space indicators, plus all the pertinent information such as punch, jaw, code series, blanks and any special information you need. Quite often, just replacing a code card is all that is required to change from one manufacturer to another.
The Punch Machine™ is all-inclusive. It comes complete with 104 code cards (including 4 micrometer cards) and 3 punch & die sets, making it ready to cut most commercial, residential, automotive and furniture keys right out of the box! The Punch Machine™ is a must for those who need a portable machine to create original keys where electricity may not be available.
Can This Blank Be Punched? Not all key blanks are suitable for punching. See Figure 3. Certain Sargent, Russwin, and Corbin blanks cannot be easily punched. To successfully punch the key, the blank must have a flat side. Some key blanks have a paracentric keyway, and do not have a flat side. This type of key will be distorted if it is punched. These keys must be cut on a milling machine, such as the HPC Original Blitz™, Switch Blitz™, CodeMax®or Tiger SHARK™
