RIBTYPE is a system of interchangeable ribbed-rubber type for printing dates, codes, and other information that changes frequently. The ribs on the back of the type interlock with the ribs on a stamping device to hold the type in place. To change a message, the user simply pulls the old type out of the rib-base and presses the new type into the ribs.
RIBTYPE sets can be used in a variety of marking methods including hand stamps, metal self-inking stamps, rocker mount hand stamps, roll printers and automatic printers like roll coders and reciprocating coders. They also are very durable and can withstand most ink requirements you may have.
5/16″ RIBTYPE letter sets include letters in quantities based on an average frequency of use. For example there are more A’s and E’s than Q’s and Z’s. Letter sets also include numbers, punctuation and currency symbols.
