Widmer N-3 Electronic Numbering Machine Review

Widmer N-3 Electronic Numbering MachineDocument control is critical when it comes to filing away, tracking and logging invoices, purchase orders, tickets, contracts and other documents. One great way to keep tabs on documents is by using a numbering machine. While there are several great manual numbering machines out there, the Widmer N-3 electronic numbering machine (found here) will dramatically speed up numbering operations. This is my review.

Widmer is very well known for manufacturing some of the best numbering machines and date stamps out there. They all look very similar, one from another, and all feature high-end motors, stamping crash heads, electronics and more. Simply put, these American-made machines are designed to last for years.

The N-3 provides a high-quality stamp that is clear, elegant, accurate and very easy to use. Because the amount of pressure being applied is the same every time, numbering by the N-3 is far superior to manual numbering machines and other comparable electronic numbering machines.

This is a sample of some actual numbering stamps created by the N-3:

Widmer N-3 Electronic Numbering Machine Stamping Example

There is no special training required to use this machine. Inserting paper will activate a trigger for high-speed stamping. Because no button needs to be pushed, it is easy to grab documents with both hands and begin feeding them into the machine. An open throat design makes it easy to move documents from left to right, making alignment easy.

The micro trigger can be adjusted to set the depth of the stamp. This makes it easy to accommodate the N-3 to handle the stamping of letter size 8 ½” x 11″ documents or items as small as tickets. Stamping pressure can also be adjusted to accommodate use with carbonized forms and sensitive carbonless forms.

The base model N-3, unmodified, has a total of 6 stamping wheels that operate in consecutive succession. This means every time it stamps, the number advances by one. It can also be purchased with a duplicate, triplicate or quadruplicate action. Call 1-800-658-8788 to request a quote on one of these non-stock options. The N-3 can also be built with a repeat switch and guide platforms for special print locations.

You will find the Widmer N-3 in accounting departments, contract departments, warehouses and much more. We sell a lot of these and we never have issues with them. They are solid little machines and only measure in at 7 ¼” H x 4 ¾” W x 10″ D. At just 18 pounds, this electronic numbering machine can be used on just about any desk, countertop or surface.

The N3 is available in aversion called the ND-3 (found here), which not only numbers documents, but also includes a date stamp as well.
