Marking Brass Tags with an Impact Press

Posted by Matt Martin

John Pegg, creator and owner of Kerosene Fragrances in Marysville, Michigan had a problem.

His elbow hurt.

John created a popular fragrance line and was marking the custom brass name tags with individual letter hand stamps and a hammer. One or two, even twenty marks are not hard on an elbow but he was making up to 70,000 hammer hits in a year!

That's when his elbow blew out and he decided it was time for a more automated solution.

John says "We started looking online and found Durable Technologies and we ended up contacting two other suppliers but Durable was the first to respond. Right from the start, Matt was awesome and a lot of help. He replied quickly and always answered all of my questions. I have never had an easier process doing something I had no idea about!"

Last month, John purchased an MV35 impact press with a custom holder, fixture, and twenty-nine custom steel dies engraved with the different fragrance names.

“The MV35 impact press is working flawlessly for my application. When I was marking everything by hand it took from two hours up to 10 hours sometimes just to manually mark a batch of orders. Now in 10 minutes, the order is done and the quality of the marks are consistent and very high quality. Thanks for all your help,” says John.
