Widmer N-3 Electronic Numbering Machine Review

Friday, December 16th, 2011

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:

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.

Widmer N-3 Automatic Numbering Machine Review

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

Widmer N-3 Automatic Electric Numbering MachineNumbering documents, carbonless forms and other paper material is an important part of document control and critical to many business operations. One easy way to number documents is to use a numbering machine. Electric numbering machines speed up this process. One electric machine you may want to look at is the popular Widmer N-3 numbering machine (found here). This is my review.

To begin with, the N-3 is an electric-powered numbering machine. Very little training or skills are need to operate it. Simply plug it into the wall (110-120 volt supply) and you’re ready to start stamping.

Widmer N-3 Numbering Machine Stamp SampleThe standard version of the N-3 comes with a printing head equipped with 6 wheels. Continuous use of the N-3 will advance the wheel with each stamp. You can get the N-3 in a consecutive, duplicate, triplicate or a quadruplicate action (but not a combination of these).

Upon request, the N-3 can be made with a combination of numbers, letters and dash wheels (up to 11 total wheels). For custom pricing on modified N-3 numbering machines, call us at 1-800-658-8788. It can also be set up wit ha repeat switch and a guide platform. A wide variety of custom modifications can be made to the N-3, so feel free to call us and ask us what may or may not be possible.

The N-3 is primarily used to stamp invoices, purchase orders and other documents. This helps save you money by cutting out the need to order pre-numbered forms. It is commonly used by our customers to control paperwork flow.

Activating the N-3 is simple. A trigger switch activates the machine. Simply take your paper, insert it into the N-3 and it will automatically stamp the paper. This trigger can be adjusted to accommodate positioning on the paper. The crash head pressure can be adjusted to accommodate carbonized and carbonless forms.

The N-3 case is very easy to open, making components easy to access and clean. This also makes changing the printing ribbon extremely easy.

As is the case with most Widmer stamping and dating machines, the build quality is great. The N-3 features durable metal construction and high-quality parts. This machine is definitely an affordable numbering machine option, especially compared to the other stuff out there.

Count Tablematic Plus Numbering Machine Review

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

Count Tablematic Plus Numbering MachineAre you in the market for a stable, reliable and fast numbering machine option for your documents or carbonless forms? One model you may want to look at is the Count Tablematic Plus numbering machine (found here). This is my review.

To begin with, the Tablematic Plus is a manually operated numbering machine. This doesn’t mean everything is done by hand, but some manual involvement is required. The actual stamping is done by the machine by means of a motor-driven stamping head.

The work surface on the Tablematic Plus measures in at 11 ½” x 16″ and is designed to easily stamp just about anywhere on an 8 ½” x 11″ letter-size sheet. Registration and alignment are done by adjusting a magnetic backstop and side rails. Once registered, an experienced operator can create about 1,000 stamps per hour.

One thing I really like about this numbering machine is that it is has a convenient foot pedal. This means you can place paper on the work surface, stamp it with your foot, and then quickly add another document. This really speeds things up and is very convenient for the operator.

The stamping head can crash number carbonless forms up to 6 parts or it can stamp regular paper. It does operations quickly and effectively. The stamp head itself can stamp either horizontally or vertically. Simply rotate the head 90 degrees on the cross bar.

If the numbering head needs any cleaning or servicing, the head can be swung upwards for easy access. This also makes it very easy to change out the ink.

The ink itself comes in a cartridge with a felt base. This cartridge is extremely easy to change out and contains oil-based ink. The cartridge should last for about 35,000 impressions before running out of ink.

By default the Count Tablematic Plus has a six-digit numbering head. This can, however, be special ordered in a 7 or 8 digit numbering head. Call us at 1-800-658-8788 to ask about custom numbering heads.

For what it does, I consider the Count Tablematic Plus numbering machine to be a solid little product. It can be used on just about any table and weighs in at 19 pounds shipped. This is a great option for document control and document numbering.

Lassco W200 Number-All Numbering Machine Review

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

Lassco W200 Number-All Electric Numbering MachineAre you in need of an effective way to number and track documents using an electric numbering machine? One machine you may want to seriously consider is the Lassco W200 Number-All numbering machine (found here). This is my review.

Numbering machines play an important roll in tracking and verifying documents. They can also be used to stamp tickets, booklets, NCR forms and more. Many numbering machines are manually operated. Unfortunately manual numbering machines can be labor intensive and often are unable to keep up with demand.

The W200 Number-All is an electric-powered numbering machine that uses a six digit numbering head. The head on this machine can do consecutive, duplicate, triplicate, 4 times in a row, 6 times in a row, 12 times in a row and repeat numbering. This much versatility in a numbering machine is ideal for business operations. Setting up the Number-All for the type of numbering you want to do is easy.

The Number-All has a huge benefit over a manual stamp because it is able to provide optimal crash number pressure, making the stamp clear and legible. The crash number’s pressure can go through up to 4-part NCR paper. The pressure cannot be adjusted. If pressure adjustment is needed, you will want to look at the Number-Rite numbering machine.

Registration and alignment on the W200 Number-All is fairly simple. It has adjustable paper guides that allow you to set the machine up to work with your paper size. The numbering head can be adjusted a full 360 degrees and can be tilted forward or backward.

The W200 Number-All will definitely save you a lot of time over a manual numbering machine. The build quality is excellent and the machine is easy to use. It has a foot pedal that allows for hands free feeding, alignment and adjusting. The numbering head is installed with a Gothic font.

I definitely recommend this machine for medium-volume numbering needs. When you open the box, you will find the W200 Number-All machine, a bottle of ink and five inkpads.

Numbering machines are extremely useful when it comes to document management and tracking. Speed can be a huge factor when it comes to stamping a lot of documents on a daily basis. This is where electronic numbering machines come in handy.

The Number-Rite W100-3 from Lassco-Wizer is considered my many to be one of the most reliable and effective electric sequential numbering machines around. This is due in part to the build quality, but also has to do with the versatility. This numbering machine can just about do it all.

To begin with, the W100-3 Number Rite has the ability to have the stamping head oriented in just about any direction. This is important when it comes to number placement on paper. The stamping head can even be fine tuned and tilted for optimal impressions.

The stamping head is powerful enough to stamp thru up to 8-part carbonless paper, but is sensitive enough to stamp delicate paper. This is all thanks to an adjustable hit crash number.

Lassco-Wizer Number-Rite W100-3 Sequential Numbering Machine HeadThe numbers themselves can be adjusted to stamp in consecutive, duplicate, triplicate, 4 times, 6 times, 12 times or repeat action. How many numbering machines can do that?

The Number-Rite W100-3 includes paper guides for repetitive number stamping and proper registration. Once set, just place your paper on the work area, press the foot pedal and start stamping. It’s that easy. The stamping head comes in a Gothic font, but a Roman type font is also available.

Overall I really like the Number-Rite W100-3. It is one of the most versatile numbering machines I have seen and the quality is top notch. Weighing in at 13 pounds, this little machine can be used on most desks and tables.
