Interchangeable Character Kits
Individual Interchangeable Characters
A slotted head includes two stops with set-screws. The stops are used for securing the brass T-Slot dies in place, preventing them from sliding.
Customized to Your Preference
A slotted head with double or multiple T-Slots can be made per customer specifications. Each slot can accommodate T-Slot dies with a deferent character size.
Since brass T-Slot dies are custom made, a wide variety of fonts can be used.
To ensure clear branded marks, BIU recommends that bold fonts be avoided when very small character sizes are required.
A T-Slot can also be added to a solid image die for desired branding variations.
