Type Retainers 541

Do you have diverse marking needs, and are looking for a solution that provides variety and efficiency? Our New Method type retainers may be the solution. Our type retainer model 541 provides the convenience of replacing letters and changing the impression to be marked without investing in a quantity of roll dies, thus enabling a variety of markings. Features include a precision-ground roll that accepts either individual type or logos (multiple characters on one blank, or an actual Company Logo), all of which are accurately machined and held to close tolerances. Any part of the retainer that becomes damaged can be quickly replaced by an identical part, which is more economic from a standpoint of cost and time than replacing a solid die. Our 541 New Method type retainer is ideal where there are a variety of parts to be marked on long continuous production. Our retainers are available in a range of sizes. Type in all sizes is normally in stock or specials can be made to order.
