    Advantages of Embossing Services:

    • Very fast cycle time which reduces costs for high volume jobs
    • Very deep marks (over 0.030”)
    • Reproduce marking image and depth from piece to piece with no variation

  • Roll Stamping Services

    Description:
    Roll Stamping is similar to Impression Marking, but involves a flat die and a round part. The flat die is pressed into the round part as it rolls across the periphery. Rolling a die over a part creates less stress since all of the pressure is not being applied to the marking area at the same time.

    Advantages of Roll Stamping Services:

    • Ability to achieve deep marks (over 0.030”) with less stress on the marking area
    • Very fast cycle time which reduces costs for high volume jobs
    • Reproduce marking image and depth from piece to piece with no variation

    Features of Universal Metal Marking’s Roll Stamping Services:

  • Knurling Services

    Description:
    Knurling is a process in which a Knurling Die is mounted on a Lathe (or a Press) and is pressed into a round or flat part. The resulting mark is a series of small raised areas around depressed areas, thus making the Knurled part easier to grasp than the previously smooth surface.

    Advantages of Knurling Services:

    • Increases one’s ability to grip the part, which makes the part safer to handle

    Features of Universal Metal Marking’s Knurling Services:

    • Capability of producing the following knurling patterns: Diamond, Male, Female, Right Slant, and Left Slant
    • Ability to Knurl parts on our In-house Lathe and produce Knurling dies in-house, thus reducing customer costs
    • Ability to Knurl round or flat parts
    • Ability to Custom-Knurl parts to customers’ desired Pitch (lines per inch) and Depth

  • Hot Stamping Services

    Description:
    Hot Stamping is the process of pressing a custom-made heated die into a part. Hot Stamping is typically performed on softer non-metallic materials such wood, leather, cork, and rubber. When other forms of Impression Marking are attempted with softer materials, the mark will “release” or not stay in place. The heat from a Hot Stamping procedure, in conjunction with the pressure and dwell time, will yield a deep, lasting mark.

    Advantages of Hot Stamping Services:

    • Deep, lasting mark that will not “release”
    • Very fast cycle time which reduces costs for high volume jobs

  • Foil Stamping Services

    Description:
    Foil Stamping is similar to Hot Stamping in that a heated die is pressed into a soft material. Foil Stamping goes a step further and utilizes a foil roll leaf to transfer foil into the mark.

    Advantages of Foil Stamping Services:

    • The application of foil creates a mark with a bold contrast
    • Deep, lasting mark that will not “release”
    • Fast cycle time

    Features of Universal Metal Marking’s Foil Stamping Services:

    • Wide range of colors

  • Hot Tipping Services

    Description:
    Hot Tipping is similar to Foil Stamping in that a heated die is utilized with a foil roll leaf to transfer foil to a mark. However, unlike Foil Stamping, Hot Tipping does not press into the part, but rather only coats or “tips” the surface of the marking area. This practice is common on plastic and leather parts.

    Advantages of Hot Tipping Services:

    • The application of foil creates a mark with a bold contrast
    • Fast cycle time
