Fount sets Low Stress

Fount set with/without holder low stress – interchangeable steel types low stress


Steel types of the brand PRYOR – LOW STRESS are high quality marking tools for special applications in the industry. Each steel type is made exactly out of high-quality chrome steel with standardized blank dimensions. To each size, a suitable hand holder is available from stock. All standard stamps are nickel-plated and protected therefore against rust. In contrast to the standard steel types PRIORITY, low stress steel types are engraved with a round faced character to reduce the stress levels introduced into the component being marked. These marking tools are produced especially for the oil and gas industry as well as in the aircraft industry and for power plants and similar applications.
Instead of the sharp faced characters, these punches are manufactured with a radius engraving to reduce the stress levels. Please see the difference on the following illustration.
