The series MB2000 is used to designate
all special numbering heads. The photo shows an example of a combined numbering head and typeholder designed for marking fire extinguishers and used on an Automator roller marking machine, model MB 76EP. The numbering head is a standard automatic model MB2 with 6 wheels, 5 mm high characters, for marking the sequential serial number on the extinguisher. The automatic indexing is achieved using a pneumatic cylinder controlled by the PLC of the roller marking machine. To the side of the numbering head is a typeholder which can hold up to 25 interchangeable steel types of 5mm height. All are aligned along the same axis so as to mark one line. It is possible to mix manual wheels of the MB14 with the MB2.
