Low Stress Punches

 
 

For use in applications which dictate that lower stress levels are introduced into the component being marked.

Simply build a series of characters into a holder and with one strike produce a mark with uniform legibility.

The basis of Lowstress Type is that the character crown, instead of being sharp faced, is rounded to give a ‘softer’ impression into the component being marked. This helps to eliminate any stress concentration at the bottom of the indentation and can be best illustrated thus:
