The Ludlow Typograph is a hot metal typesetting system used in letterpress printing. The device casts bars, or slugs of type, out of type metal primarily consisting of lead. These slugs are used for the actual printing, and then are melted down and recycled on the spot. The Ludlow Typograph Company, founded in 1906 by William I. Ludlow, began manufacturing the device in Chicago in 1912 as a cheaper, simpler alternative to the Linotype. By the early 1980s, the company claimed there were 16,000 such machines in operation worldwide.
