If you’re new to metal marking and you’re not sure where to start, we can help. At Numberall Stamp & Tool Co., we offer equipment to mark virtually any material from stainless steel to PVC plastic, but knowing which products are best for your needs usually requires research and lengthy phone calls with customer service. That’s why we’ve created a tool to help eliminate the time and hassle that’s usually required when you’re trying to find the right marking device.
Our product chooser form asks a few simple questions, and based on your responses we recommend a product (or products) for you. To start, simply fill out the product chooser form. You’ll have to find the answers to the following questions before you start:
- What type of information are you marking?
- If part #, date code, or batch # is your data changing every…
- On what type of material are you marking?
- On what type of surface are you marking?
Your answer to these questions will help us find the right marking device for your needs.
We’ll walk you through the process to help you out. Above and to the right, you’ll see the product chooser form. All you have to do is click the drop down and choose an option. We’ve filled in each drop down with an example so you can see what happens when you click the “find product” button. For this combination of requirements, we’ve been given two different Numberall products that might work, which you can see to the left.
Even though this form will give you options, it’s just a starting point and you should do more research to find the perfect fit for you, which includes looking at our product matrix, which you can see a photo of to below, and following the suggested marking tools from the product chooser.
The product matrix gives additional information on the use of each device that the product chooser recommended. In this case, we can see that the model 131-131 A are two separate machines, one is a hand operated bench press , the other is air-operated. Each option has a direct link to the product page on the website, where more information can be found, if necessary.
Through the extra description on the product matrix, you will be able to review additional marking tools and presses to further refine your product choice. For example, if the model 131 is the right device, we can go to the product page to find more information.
Sometimes figuring out which machine is right isn’t quite this simple, but the product chooser can give you a starting point so you have an idea about which Numberall machine might work best for you.
