Metal Backed Plates
Plates mounted onto steel or brass backing make plate changes fast, easy, and clean. Steel-backed plates are typically used on print drums covered with magnetic material so that plates can be quickly placed anywhere on the drum. Brass back dies mount with screws or clamps on print wheels to prevent movement during printing.
Made especially for printing on fast-moving metal strip lines (up to 5,000 fpm), these dies are mounted on brass or aluminum backing and are held securely in place on the print drum with screws or die clamps. They are available in a wide variety of sizes and configurations and can be made with mortices to hold interchangeable characters for changing heat and grade numbers.
Flat printing plates are available unmounted, with adhesive backing, or hook and loop Velcro backing for mounting anywhere on your print drum. Can be purchased as large plates, smaller interchangeable plates, or individual characters for ultimate flexibility.
