Steel Hand Stamps – Low Stress

$32.80$205.13

Low Stress Punch Sets are ideal for applications which dictate that lower stress levels are introduced into the component being marked. This is usually a requirement for Aerospace, Nuclear, Oil and Gas installations and some M.O.D. work.

2 Styles of Lowstress engraving available.

Ministress – round faced engraving which gives a continuous line character when marked.

Dotstress – for even greater reduced stress levels, a character with similar nose formation to Ministress but with the added benefit of impressing the character in dot formation.

All the stamps in this range are hardened and tempered to precise limits, nickel plated for rust protection thus giving maximum safety in use and long product life.

Best quality Low Stress Punch Sets made from chromium tool steel.

Round face engraving style to produce low-stress positive impressions; when you look at the engraved character on a standard hand stamp, the letter is a reflection /reverse of how it is indented.

All the stamps in this range are through hardened to between 58-62 Rockwell C and then tempered at the striking end to between 32-40 Rockwell C giving maximum safety in use.

Safety note: As with all striking tools, we recommend the use of appropriate safety protection. Safety glasses and gloves should we worn at all times
