Electric Branding iron 

Manufacturer of electric branding iron and branding iron tools for wood, leather, wooden boxes, pallets and cork

Branding iron manufacturer: Electric branding irons, or also called fire stamp, are the traditional and most preferred form for the lasting marking of wood, wooden boxes, palettes, cork, leather and many other materials.

In the past, branding irons were laid in the glow and were heated slowly. Today, electrically operated branding irons are connected to a plug socket with standard tension of 220 V. After approx. 15 minutes of warm-up time the stamp reaches operating temperature and is ready for use.

With a branding iron you can mark your logos, letterings or any text permanently on your products. This marking is extremely lasting and cannot be bleached by sunlight or water. In addition, a fire mark cannot be removed without destruction or physical damage of the product.
