What is a Numbering Machine or Bates Stamp? A numbering machine is a mechanical self-inking stamp that automatically advances to the next consecutive or sequential number in a predetermined pattern referred to as “movements”. A numbering machine can have from 1 to 10 movements that can be selected by the operator.

 

Almost all numbering machines have a consecutive movement (stamp a number, then advance to the next number). Many machines have other choices of movements. Other choices may be:

 

Repeat: Keep stamping the same number.

Duplicate: stamp the same number 2 times then advance to the next consecutive number.

Triplicate: stamp the same number 3 times then advance to the next consecutive number.

4x to 20x: stamp the same number X times then advance to the next consecutive number.

Drop Zero is an action that allows the stamp to either stamp leading zeros (000022) or drop the zero and stamp with leading blank spaces (    22).

 

Die Plate: A die plate is a plate containing non-changing or static TEXT, LOGOS & Designs.

 

Bates Stamps: Numbering machines are often referred to as Bates Stamps because they use the bates numbering system and many were made by the Bates Numbering Machine Company.
