Simple and economical Roovers metal tag embossing machines use rolls of metal “tape” to create deeply embossed or debossed tags for heavy-duty tagging applications. Using a character selection wheel, characters are embossed one at a time by pulling a handle. Create tags in variable lengths with holes or slots at both ends for nailing, tying, or welding in place for lasting product identification.

For faster and easier tag making, both the T-10A and T-20 can be supplied with a pneumatic kit and actuation lever for semi-automatic operation.

  • labels for pipe, hose, and cable
  • part tracking through painting and galvanizing operations
