Typeholder for interchangeable steel types and marking stamps


Manual type holders are always used in combination with steel types and are designed to achieve an optimum marking result. Type holders are designed to provide accurate type location and positive locking combined with ease of use and durability. The type is secured in place by means of a grub screw (allen key supplied). The holder can also be fitted with a spring clip for extra security. This is necessary, especially for larger character sizes.


According to the size and the holder used, a certain number of steel marking types can be combined in the holder. The grub screw permits a quick exchange of the single types.

Type holders – availability

According to dimension of the blanks, each blank has its own type holders. The capacity of each holder depends on the size of the character and decreases with increasing size. The main reason for this fact is that on the one hand the type holder become heavy with increasing character size, on the other hand, the necessary stroke power could hardly be reached by hammer stroke only.
