Steel types or also called interchangeable steel types are sharp faced marking stamps which mark a readable imprint in metal and plastic components. Each steel type has standardized blanks which suit perfectly into hand holders and holders for marking presses.


Marking with steel types and holders saves time – in just one stroke, a series of letters and figures can be indented in a product or name plate with uniform legibility. This is the most simple solution for multi-character marking using standard, off the shelf type and holders. Our steel types are available in various versions, each with their own blank size.

The size of the characters may vary from 1.5 to 10.0 mm, special fonts (Cyrillic…), special dimensions and special character size above 10.0 mm are made after drawing or after sample.
