Steel Hand Stamps – Symbols


Symbol Marking is widely used to mark symbols on a variety of materials. Our range of steel Symbol Stamps are ideal for use in a variety of industries including serial number, and/or symbol marking, inspection marking for quality control, or as part of asset marking for industrial equipment.

All our Symbol Stamps are made from chromium tool steel and 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. Manufactured in Sheffield, England, under stringent BS EN ISO 9001:2015 quality controls and exacting standards.

When you look at the engraved character on a standard hand stamp, the letter is a reflection /reverse of how it is indented.

Hardened and tempered to precise limits, nickel plated for rust protection for maximum safety in use and long productive life.
