Straight Type

Straight type is the most economical alternative for production marking requirements where interchangeability is a necessity. Straight type is readily available in sets. Straight type is not as safe and secure as step and groove type but is an economical alternative for short and medium–sized runs. Straight type is used for its versatility of interchangeable type. Type is held in the stamp by a set screw.
