Numbering heads are ideal for quick, easy serial numbering and message changing when mounted to a Mark-First® Impact Press or your own press. Characters are changed by simply turning the wheels – there is no need to remove the device from the press. The wheels feature right-reading character indicators allowing the operator to see which characters are in marking position. Manufactured from top-quality steel and heat treated for long life.

MB14 Manual Numbering Heads – Locking mechanisms keep each wheel in place. After unlocking, wheels can be turned by hand or with optional levers.

MB2 Automatic Numbering Heads – Heads with up to six automatically indexing wheels make serial numbering fast and easy.
