Shank-style type holders for use in impact marking presses are ideal for repetitive numbering and coding. Standard and custom-made holders can be used with interchangeable type and/or multi-character logotypes. One-piece construction is drilled and tapped at the top to accept a threaded shank for press mounting. Stocked type holders feature a set screw to retain type in the slot.

Standard Type

Standard type features sharp face gothic style characters and is hardened to 58-60 HRC for marking surfaces as hard as 32 HRC (Rockwell C hardness). Standard sizes are made to be used in the standard holders listed above.

Marking Force

To calculate the impact force required to mark your material, refer to the Stamping Force chart for Pannier marking presses.
