At Numberall, we pride ourselves in offering a diverse line of high-quality marking machines, each with their own specific use. When it comes to marking small round parts, we’ve designed specialized presses that can get the job done more efficiently and effectively, with the same accuracy and quality that our equipment has become known for throughout the 90 years we’ve been in business.
Why Use a Roll Marking Machine?
Roll marking, or cylindrical marking, is a
method of marking solid or hollow round parts, such as pipes and gears. At
Numberall, we design our roll marking machines specifically for light duty
marking of round parts with an even depth of impression. With typical flat
metal marking equipment, it can be difficult if not impossible to get an even
mark across a round part. Will roll marking, the part rotates, or rolls, with
the indenting device to ensure each character is distributed evenly and with
the same depth of impression. Our versatile roll marking equipment can be used
on a wide range of materials across many different manufacturing industries,
including firearms, automotive parts, pipe fittings, and more.
What are the Roll Marking Machine Options?
At Numberall, we offer two options for roll
marking equipment — the Model 301
Hand-Operated and Model
301A Air-Operated presses. Although similar, these models offer unique
capabilities that make them suitable based on the volume of our customer’s
The Model 301 is a hand operated machine which
is capable of mark round parts with
characters up to 1/4” in aluminum, or 5/32” characters in mild steel. Despite
its compact bench-top size, this press is able to incorporate oversized
endplates for more clearance. To begin stamping, you will need a marking
device. Many of our numbering heads can be used with the Model 301, including Model 23 Type Holder, Model 70P Non-Automatic Numbering Head, and Model 50P Automatic Numbering Head. Each unique numbering head offers customization
when paired with the 301 roll marking press.
301A is ideal for high production application. This model uses an air cylinder
for power and includes a control valve. The Model 301A can stamp characters of
the same size, in the same material as the Model 301. The Model 301A can also
incorporate oversized endplates for larger diameter parts — just like the
Model 301. Similar to the Model 301, numbering heads, type holders, or marking
dies are used in conjunction with the Model 301A. The key differentiator is
that the Model 301 is air-operated rather than by hand, which allows for large
scale production marking needs.
Can Roll Marking Machines be Customized?
No matter the shape or size of the item you want
to mark, it’s likely that we can customize one of our roll marking machines to
meet your needs. In addition to the oversized endplate options, Numberall has
designed custom fixtures to stamp the edges of coins and medallions without
marring the surfaces. We also have fixtures with interchangeable arbors for
stamping hollow parts or rings. For parts with varying part diameters or
stepped parts, we can modify our standard adjustable holding fixture rollers to
hold the part securely when marking.
One example of our custom roll marking
capabilities is an application we created to mark CO2 bottles. In this design,
we created special holding fixtures to mark the neck of the bottle at an angle.
To see this application in action, view our recent blog post: Numberall’s
Custom Application to Mark CO2 Bottles.
Our roll marking machines offer both precision and flexibility for our
customers looking to indent round parts. If you would like to learn more about

At Numberall Stamp and Tool, we
take pride in our ability to offer high-quality stamping equipment. These
stamping tools can be used to mark a variety of materials across several
different industries. While we have a wide range of products that we offer, we
also can create high-quality custom marking tools at our customer’s request.
We recently received a request by a
customer looking to create a concrete stamp that could be used to imprint their
logo into wet concrete. They needed something that was durable, easy to handle,
and could accurately imprint concrete for a lasting mark. Our solution was a
custom concrete stamp: we created a resin image of their logo in-house and
attached it to a ¼” aluminum plate. The plate’s grooved round handle was
designed to help the customer utilize this lightweight stamp with ease. To
apply the stamp, all the customer has to do is simply push the stamp into the
wet concrete to imprint their design.
Our custom concrete stamp directly
met the customer’s needs — offering them
a portable product that leaves a lasting impression and at a very short
turnaround time. We were able to deliver the customer their product in only two
weeks’ time. This custom product was created by our team of skilled craftsmen
by utilizing durable lightweight materials. We chose aluminum to create this
stamp because of its light weight and resistance to corrosion to help improve
the product’s life span. We are proud to produce tools of the highest quality
standards and manufactured right here in the United States — many of our
customers are still using our products 30 years after purchase.
Our custom concrete stamps are just
one way that we can customize and create products to meet your needs in a
timely manner. Whether your company is looking for a metal stamping product or
you are in need of a custom design for a unique application, we’d be happy to

Numberall has been a
recurring attendee of EASTEC, the leading Northeast manufacturing trade show,
since 1998. This past May, we were eager to attend the three-day
event in West Springfield, Massachusetts. We find that EASTEC always proves to
be educational and inspirational, as we often return encouraged by the
presentations and experiences of customers, fellow vendors, and speakers alike.
It turns out the 2019 conference wasn’t any different.
This year, EASTEC featured
over 700 exhibitors with technical presentations, workshops, and keynote
speakers. Stepping back into our booth in the exhibit hall, we had the pleasure
of meeting many new faces and demonstrating some of our popular equipment,
including the Model 40B, the Model 301A with Model 50P stamping round parts, and the Model 136A stamping screwdriver handles. A trend we noticed in meeting with new
companies is the need for steel stamps and marking tools—products Numberall has
been manufacturing since inception in 1930. Why use steel stamps instead of a machine? One reason is they
are economical—not only are they affordable, but they are also made to last.
Another reason is the steel stamp’s precise marking. Since the operator
controls the force of the hammer, you can ensure that a clear mark is created
every time. With these qualities along with their durability, we found that
Numberall’s steel stamps were the right fit for a lot of companies’ metal
Though we were pleased to meet many new people at the conference, one of our favorite things about EASTEC was being able to meet past and current customers who we may have only spoken to over the phone or through email. One customer who stopped by our booth this year had used Numberall products for over 80 years! In 1936 Ketchum Mfg. in Lake Luzerne, New York, purchased the 13thModel 50P that came out of production, a model that we only began manufacturing a year prior.
If you missed this year’s
EASTEC conference, you’ll have to wait until 2021 to attend this biennial event. However, if you have an immediate
marking need, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us today! Whether it’s a
steel stamp set or a numbering machine, we have several options to help you mark metal more efficiently. Of course, we take custom

products. This is one of the many reasons why we enjoy attending EASTEC in West
Springfield, Massachusetts. By participating in EASTEC, we have the opportunity
to personally meet with many of our customers and learn more about their needs.
Our goal is to continue to provide quality solutions to your metal marking
EASTEC 2019 will feature
