How Rhino™ Stamps Came to Be
Rhino Steel Stamps got their start in the late 1980s. Our Plant Manager at the time was receiving requests from our customers for steel stamps that we made more durable than our top-of-the-line Premier steel stamps. These stamps were routinely being shipped into oil fields for marking petroleum pipes. The pipe that was being marked was often cast and had a rough finish, so the end-user was really hitting the stamps with a lot of force to make sure the impression was readable. This was causing even our best stamps to deform. We wanted to improve the performance of our stamps; thus, we started experimenting with different grades of steel and different heat treatment processes to make the stamps more durable. These new stamps proved to be very successful in the fields, and we received requests for entire letter and number sets made out of this new material. We decided that we would begin to offer these new stamps as their own line and called them “Rhino”. Rhino stamps are bigger, stronger, and easier to use in difficult stamping applications. Eventually, Rhino has become so popular that we’re discontinuing our Premier steel stamps!
