Lanston Monotype Machine Co Printers. There are three ways to create a matrix. Originally, matrices were made using hand cut steel punches to create the recess that receives the type metal. The next innovation was the use of electroforming to create the matrix. This requires a pattern type to be copied.
This pattern type could either be an existing type or it could be a new design cut in typemetal. Many of the matrices of the 19th century were made by hand cutting and electroforming in this way. The development of sufficiently accurate pantographs in the 1880s allowed the mechanization of punch and pattern type cutting and also allowed the direct routing of matrices. The first directly routed matrices in America were cut in 1882 at the Central Type Foundry in St.
In the 1880s and 1890s, several independent matrix cutting firms emerged. Also in the 1880s, Linn Boyd Benton developed an unusually sophisticated pantograph for engraving pattern types and punches which was leased to several matrix and casting machine companies, including both Linotype and Lanston Monotype.In 1899, he revised this machine for the direct engraving of matrices, though for high production volume matrixes, such as for the Linotype, stamping was still the preferred method of manufacture.
