Making Sure – How Monotype Machines are Made


Ralf Herrmann

The Monotype is a wonder of mechanics and engineering and in this film you will see the process of manufacturing the Monotype from beginning to end.

The film starts by showing the Salfords, UK train station and entrance into the Monotype factory, then shows all of the milling, drilling, cutting, and casting required to make the casting machine. After that, we see the keyboard and paper-punch apparatus being constructed.

The film ends with footage of testing and calibrating the machine and images of the Monotypes being shipped all over the world.
