Hoffer Plastics Corp. (South Elgin, IL) is known for its innovations in cap and closure technology, including its signature Drop-Lok closures used in a range of rigid and flexible pouch packaging across many industries. The closure features a traditional one-motion, twist-off design, and is available in many types of resin. In many Drop-Lok applications, a lined cap is a key element, providing a crucial barrier for product integrity, quality, shelf life and, most importantly, safety. To meet increased demand for this product line, the company recently installed a new high-speed lining machine that, it said, takes this operation to the next level.

Beyond just improving line speeds, the equipment delivers a more consistent, high-quality lined closure, which means increased efficiencies for customers. What it ultimately means is a better, safer product experience for consumers and their families, said Hoffer Plastics.
