Press Style Manual Numbering Heads

Manual change numbering heads are typically used for lower volume marking requirements. The wheels are manually advanced with a spanner wrench and provide accurate and permanent marking. The same character sequence is retained after each impression is made unless changed by the operator with a spanner wrench. They provide an ideal solution for stamping repetitive sequences such as product codes, part numbers, serial numbers, etc. 

Our manual numbering heads are available in a variety of different styles and configurations for both numbering and lettering depending on your application.
