Monotype Material Making Machine

image link-topic-sf0.jpg

There were two dedicated material-making machines from Lanston Monotype: the Monotype Material Making Machine and the Monotype Junior Material Making Machine. Very little is known about the latter.

Note also that with the correct equipment it was possible to cast strip material on the Monotype Type-&-Rule Caster, the Monotype Giant Caster, the Monotype-Thompson Type-Caster, and the Monotype Supercaster. All of the Monotype strip-casting was done using "fusion" casting in a manner entirely different from Elrod continuous strip-casting.

Sales Literature & Specimens

(The sales literature for this machine tended to include specimens, and there weren't many specimens in total in any case, so I've grouped them together here.)
