In the indent marking industry keeping characters clean helps prolong life. Buildup of material can cause characters to fail. Numberall offers character cleaning picks that can eliminate these problems. Each pick is made in the USA with USA chromium-vanadium 8650 alloy steel. It is protected with a black oxide finish. The pick and nickel plated steel ferrule is hand assembled to the made in Maine hardwood handle. 2 styles are offered, a 30 degree bend and a double bend. Each pick is packed in a leather pouch and 100% MADE IN USA!
As we end 2021 (finally) we remind our customers that the dates codes need to be updated.
It’s time to check your supply of type, making sure you have enough 2’s for the new date code. Checking that
the custom dies are up to date with the proper year. Verifying that the numbering head doesn’t have
any damaged characters or need special engraved wheels.
We offer many marking options, including:
- Date code, shift codes, etc. in a solid block – If you need multi-character stamps to speed up the change-over of codes, we can provide stamps that will work for you. Our multi-character stamps are perfect for codes that remain the same, such as the year 2021 or even a section of a part code.
- Standard steel type pieces – These pieces are compatible with Numberall’s Model 23 Type Holder, or your own type holder, for a uniformly spaced and aligned character sequence. Our standard steel type is engraved and precision heat treated on quality American steel, plus we manufacture blanks to high standards for accuracy, strength, and alignment.
- Numbering head wheels – We can special engrave numbering head wheels with the same character or groups of characters so that if a character gets worn or damaged, you can switch to the next one that works.
- Custom marking equipment – If none of the above methods work for your date marking, please reach out to us! We are happy to provide a quote for custom solutions to meet your needs.
Stock items will be shipped the next business day. Custom items could be 2-3 weeks. Shipping delays
are common this time of year.
Thank you for your past business, looking forward for a prosperous 2022 for all of us!
As always, MADE IN USA!
Need a Special Marking Sequence?
We can modify our marking heads to many different possibilities. The Model 70P pictured is a manually advanced numbering head with an extended frame leg. The extended leg has a pocket for a logo die. The customer needed a special space from the last wheel to the logo die. The logo die is retained by a set screw and can easily be removed for a different sequence. The wheels can be quickly rotated to a new sequence with the supplied spanner wrench.
Multiple Wheel Groups
Numberall can also make the Model 70 with 2 groups of wheels. The space between the groups is up to the customer. This design is also used when a lot of wheels are required. The frame leg allows for extra support for the wheels, to provide a good even impression.
These are just a couple of the many different modifications that can be done. We have extended both frame legs for inserts. We have made units with 3 groups of wheels. It all depends on the application and production requirements.
As Always MADE IN USA!
Here’s a Unique Comparison
A custom Model 50P with 1-1/2″ characters and an extended frame leg with our standard Model 50P with 1/8″ characters in the foreground.
The custom Model 50P uses 7″ diameter wheels, the standard Model 50P uses 1-1/2″ diameter wheels. We make custom heads with up to 1-3/4″ character sizes. Our standard heads are available from 1/32″ to 3/8″ characters sizes.
The custom Model 50P is a 1 piece frame with an extended frame leg for 7 characters. Holes were drilled to help reduce weight. The air trip also required an unconventional mounting. A clearance hole was made for the air cylinder. Customer stamps up to 999 parts, then resets the wheels and changes the character arrangement on the frame leg. These are custom manufactured to the customers specifications. We can have up to 6 wheels indexed automatically, depending on character size.
Non-automatic heads with up to 1-3/4″ character sizes are also available.
As Always MADE IN USA!
Numberall can produce equipment for Embossing or Debossing. The majority of our equipment is used for “identing”. However, if you need a raised character (like a vehicle license plate or Vin number) or a sunk character (the opposite side of a license plate), we can manufacture a numbering head or arrange one of our bench presses for embossing.
One picture is a set of our Model 50P for serial numbering. It was a large character size for a tag that had to be easily read. it was placed in the customers die set and the tags were automatically feed into the die set.
There is a group of pictures of our Model 50P for serial numbering, but the frame legs are extended for static information stamped with the serial number. This Model 50P set was totally custom. It was used in a die set to quickly produce tags to be used in a molding process. A picture of typical tags is included. Another picture shows a standard Model 50P along with the Embossing set. As you note, the Model 50P Embossing set is much larger that our standard Model 50P.
We can also modify our presses for 2 of the Model 23P type holders and type for embossing. This application was to produce a batch of tags with the same information, to process thru a galvanizing operation. The Type holders are easily removable to replace the male and female pieces of type. Shown is the Model 136 Hand Operated Press, tag fixture and 2 Model 23P Type Holders.
As always MADE IN USA!!
Meet Mike Scott and wish him a happy retirement. After 38 years, Mike is retiring. If you have purchased a Model 40B, Model 23 Type Holder or any other press, Mike did the machining and most of the assembly. His function was to run and organize the press department. Making sure the other machinists were working on the proper parts to keep our quick deliveries. All presses, platforms, type holders, and the special fixtures was his responsibility. Keeping stock of all the inventory was another function. Giving purchasing lists of items such as nuts & bolts to casting, was under his control. If sales could not help solve a problem with the machine, you may have talked to Mike, to get your machine up and running.
Mike liked rebuilding the machines that he built.. My favorite saying to him was, here’s another one that was needs your help. It’s only 25 years old, couldn’t you have made it a little better? He’d respond I’ll fix it to last another 25 years!
His work ability was tremendous. Always making sure that product was 100% (or more). Working with engineering, suggesting changes or procedures to make and produce the best product. Mike always stepped up, when we needed parts made or assemble a machine in a rush. Especially when making modifications to allow customers parts to fit. Thanks Mike, it is appreciated!
We wish Mike and his wife the best in their retirement. We’re sure he’ll stop in to make sure we are doing it properly!!
Our Model 301 or 301A Cylindrical Marking Presses sometimes require special fixtures to hold odd shaped parts. They may be multiple diameters, hex shapes or just long parts needing additional support.It may be a dedicated fixture for just one part. Or it may have to be adjustable to fit a family of parts. We have designed and manufactured hundreds of fixtures. Some designs allow the fixture to move in and out. Others are stationary. Some are very complicated due to the part design. Others are very simple that require just a groove in the roller for clearance. For hollow parts with thin walls, we have an arbor design, so that the part will not bend when marking.
The pictures below show some the variations we have designed.
Numberall can make special holding fixtures for all their marking tools. For this application, the customer required a mark on the inside diameter (ID) of a piece of pipe. The ID range is 4″ to 8″. That allow us to make a block to insert the stamp. The block was then mounted to a shank of heat treated steel with a handle. Because the ID was large, the block fits into the diameter. The spacing of the block, allows the customer to mark the same distance from edge of the pipe regardless of the diameter. The large shank allow the operator to push against the diameter of the pipe and move the fixture till the stamp locates on the ID. The operator then uses a hammer blow to make the impression. As always MADE IN THE USA!
As we prepare the office for the new year, it‘s always interesting to reflect on past years. Looking through an old file drawer, we noticed the many changes thru the years in the catalogs. (more…)
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. (more…)
With the first year of the new decade coming to a close, we have much to be thankful for here at Numberall. We were able to help many new and repeat customers in 2020, meet their metal marking needs, and fulfill various custom orders, including this Model 50P we modified to solve a customer’s clearance issue. Like many, we are excited to see what 2021 has in store. (more…)
Numberall has many choices for the Model 23P Type Holder. Not just character size and capacity, but we can modify the Model 23P for just about any type of marking. (more…)
Numberall can modify any of our marking tools. In this application our customer asked us to produce our Model 50P to fit a specific area. (more…)
