KURCHUNK! KURCHUNK! Any security professional who has been in the business for any amount of time recognizes that sound. Punching a key with a bench-top code cutter produces a sound unique in our industry, in fact, the familiar sound of the Blue Punch goes back to the 1960’s.
The Blue Punch Key Machine a heavy duty dedicated punch machine designed to generate factory “original” keys with the speed of a duplicator. The Blue Punch is fast, extremely accurate and easy to use. These machines are ideal for the commercial security professional, system integrator, hotels, schools and other institutions.

Punching the cuts on a key instead of grinding is nothing new, but it’s a simple concept that has made a lot of security professionals a lot of money. At PRO-LOK, the idea of punching original code keys is alive and well. As the leading manufacturer of bench-top Blue Punch Key Machine, PRO-LOK knows why this concept is so popular – because it’s so simple. And the machine has a 50 year history as one of the most popular punch type machines to back it up.
The Blue Punch started out in the late 60’s as the Codemac 101 and later became famous as the Keymak. It eventually sold under the brand names Armbruster Key Punch, Automatic Security Machine (ASM), City Punch, Schlage 40126, Kwikset Keycutter #278, Falcon/Weiser 1214 and a few other labels.
In late-1993, PRO-LOK bought all of the tooling, dies, castings, parts and pieces, then began the detailed process of manufacturing this popular punch machine. Still being sold on the market for over 30 years, there are thousands of these machines out there in daily use and the demand continues to be strong.
Although cosmetically the machine looks the same today as it did in the 60’s and 70’s, countless technical improvements have been made to the original Blue Punch machine since the initial acquisition by PRO-LOK. All manufacturing is accomplished at PRO-LOK’s facility in Orange, CA and is proudly Made in America.
