Curved Line Stamping

Numberall can modify our marking tools to suit many applications.  In this example the  customer was stamping a part that needed to be a curved line.  Also, clearance issues required  a unique modification.  The engraving not only had to be offset to produce a curved line, it had to be adjusted to stamp 30 degrees from normal.  Since this was a hot stamp application, stamping off center did not present a problem.  In the below picture, you can see the curved line, between the angle cuts on the frame legs.  The bottom picture is a close up of the engraving, showing the curved line.

We were able to use standard parts and shipped the order in less than 3 weeks.  As always Made in USA!

Repairs

Numberall repairs and rebuilds their products. A few weeks ago, we received a Model 50P for repair.  It just needed a couple parts, cleaning & oiling. In continuous  use since 1947. How many manufacturers can supply parts and repair 73 year old tools? We shipped it, the day after the customer approved the quote.  A testimony to Numberall’s quality and support. As always Made in USA!

Coin Marking

Numberall manufacturers identification equipment for all industries. Here’s a custom setup for marking coins. Using the Model 301 hand operated cylindrical marking press to mark around the edge of the coin. We used our standard adjustable holding fixture and added adjustable stops and non-marring clamp faces.  Designed for a range of coins from 3/4″ to 2-1/4″ diameter, with a thickness of 3/32″ to 1/4″. 

This customer uses our Model 23P Type Holder and standard steel type  to put a special message around the coin. 

This setup has oversize endplates for additional clearance.  We also, made a series of riser blocks, to fit under the fixture to raise the coins within the adjustment of the sliding head.  This is needed when going from small diameters to large diameters.  Our Model 301-A can be used for this application.

If a serial number is needed, we recommend our Model 50P.    An option would be to extend a frame leg and make a slot to hold type or a special logo. Various other styles of marking devices are available and can be customized to suit the application.

We can also supply other fixtures for products that require information to be stamped around the part.  Made in the USA!

Reshoring your Manufacturing

As the country comes to realize that a domestic supply chain is extremely important, many American companies are looking to bring their manufacturing and jobs back to the United States.  It’s a great idea and we know it is going to happen. Reshoring is the first step in building a strong American economy.  Numberall wants you to remember that you will now need stamping tools to properly identify your product origin.  Made in the USA or Proudly Made in the USA, whatever you need Numberall can manufacture the marking tools.

Numberall can also help with other marking requirement.  We provide marking tools for producing serial numbers, part numbers, dates code and other product identification.  We have marking tools that can be used with hot stamping presses as well as cold stamping applications.  We can provide tools that are hand held or press mounted.  We offer small bench presses that can be used rather than tie up a production press on the shop floor.  We can customize our marking tools. We also build special tooling and fixtures for those difficult to mark parts.

As always, Numberall products are Made in the USA!

The Difference Between Serializing and Simply Marking a Product

The Difference Between Serializing and Simply Marking a Product

At Numberall, we offer a diverse line of quality numbering heads with specific capabilities for serializing or simply marking a product or date code on a variety of materials. However, when determining which product will best suit our customer’s needs, we often find that it isn’t obviously clear when a serializing head is needed, versus our other consecutive marking products.

An Overview of Roll Marking Uses and Machines

An Overview of Roll Marking Uses and Machines

An Overview of Roll Marking Uses and Machines | Numberall Blog

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 marking needs.

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.

The Model 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.
