Model 73P Heavy Duty

The Model 73P Heavy Duty is similar in construction and function to the Model 70, but is made specifically for heavy-duty marking. By utilizing large diameter wheels and frames, the Model 73P enables the operator to use more force without causing machine deflection. Also available with a one-piece Hand Shank, the Model 73P is readily adaptable to your marking requirements. Best used when marking requires large character sizes and multiple character wheels. For applications that require severe usage or high forces, Models 80, 83, and 85 are available with Model 73 Heavy Duty-type construction. Please contact us for pricing and availability.



Operation is similar to the Model 70. The same character sequence is retained after each impression is made, unless changed by the operator with the convenient spanner wrench.

Construction & Parts
The innovative design of the machine guarantees consistently uniform character alignment and impression depth. Multiple wheels are held precisely in position by retaining pawls and retaining pawl springs. A retaining pawl seats the index plate on each of the one piece wheels. This one piece construction assures more accurate stamping than those obtainable with two piece wheels. A pawl block further aids in maintaining wheel alignment. The wheels are meticulously engraved for accuracy, strength and alignment. Crafted from high grade tool steel, they are precision heat treated for severe usage and long life. Unlike the less rugged designs of other manufacturers, we optimize our frame designs to be compatible with the number of wheels desired by increasing the frame and leg widths.

The Model 73P can be adapted to virtually any press. Our standard shank is 1″ diameter x 1-1/4″ or 2″ long. We offer a standard dovetail shank to the Model 116 Dovetail Adapter.

We can make custom round or rectangular shanks. We can omit the shank and provide tapped mounting holes or install a custom designed adapter. Or we can leave the top flat so the customer can drill and tap or mount an adapter. Please request a factory quote.
