Numbering heads are marking tools for many applications in the metal and plastic-processing industry. With a numberer, you can mark high quantities in excellent quality. Due to the construction, our marking heads are extremely durable, even for heavy duty applications.

These standard manual numberers are also available with a shank for the use in a percussion press. Also for machine processing, automatic numbering heads indent a consecutive number into the working piece. The numbering sequence on standard automatic heads is consecutive when the handle is depressed. Otherwise a constant inscription is marked. Another kind of numbering head has manually adjustable wheels, where every single wheel can be changed by a special handle. This is the most comfortable numbering head, especially, when you have to change the numbering code frequently.
