Nameplate Marking Manual Detail Presses
Schmidt manufactures two manual tag marking machine presses, the Model 4 and Model 6, for stamping into name plates, metal tags, dog tags and ID tags.
Schmidt's Model 4 and Model 6 name plate detail presses mark evenly spaced letters and numbers that are accurately aligned and uniformly deep.
*Schmidt does not manufacture or sell nameplates and tags, however, we can offer several suggestions - click here to view our resources for purchasing Nameplates, Dog Tags, and Pet ID Tags.

Available Nameplate Marking Dials:
The Model 4 and Model 6 come with either sharp or flat face dials. Each marking dial has 40 characters - A through Z (upper case), 0 through 9, slash (/), dash (-), period (.) and an ampersand (&).
Sharp Face Dials
Sharp face can be used to mark on all materials - steel, brass, stainless steel*, aluminum, plastic, etc. The sharp face characters penetrate the nameplate material more easily than the flat face. Available in 1/16", 3/32", 1/8", 3/16" & 1/4" character sizes.
Flat Face Dials
Flat face are used to mark on brass, aluminum and plastic because they create a wider impression. Use this character face when the impressions are to be color-filled (lacquer-stick or wax crayon). Available in 1/16", 3/32", 1/8", and 3/16" character sizes.
If nameplates are to be marked within 3/8" of the top edge, if the shape is not square or rectangular, or if you are marking dog tags or pet ID tags, a special fixture or "nest" may be necessary.
We recommend visiting Perma-Products. They offer a nameplate nest that will attach directly to our table, as well as, "tag Nest Plates" for marking special shapes of pet ID tags. Please contact Perma-Products for more information. Click here to see our company recommendations for nameplate resources.
*GTS does not recommend the use of character sizes larger than 1/8" on stainless steel - while the dial is quite capable of creating an impression in this material, the pressure required to mark larger characters may cause the ram to deflect resulting in incomplete characters.
Each letter or figure occupies a space as wide as it is high. Fractions (1/2, 1/4, etc.) are made with the characters in line - not above one another. A fraction will occupy space equal to letters or figures of the same character size.
For example, 1/8" characters are spaced 8 to the inch. Marking the word "TEMPERED" using an 1/8" character dial would occupy one inch. The same reading in 3/32" characters would yield a mark 3/4" of an inch long.
