Manual Radial Type Holders
Designed for radially marking flat surfaces, all type holders are machined from tool steel for durability and designed to meet specific customer requirements. Radial step type is used when the entire legend changes. Radial logotype can be used when part of the legend remains constant. A pilot can be provided to guide the holder into marking position. This insures accurate placement of the radial mark.
Straight Type Holder
Straight type holders are for use in Schmidt roll marking machines. Type or logotype are easily changed by removing the locking pin. Several sizes are in stock, in both t-slot and dovetail mounts. Contact us to order at 800-323-1332.
