Dave Seat ( Hot Metal Services) has brochures for the Ludlow Model N and Model S on his website: http://www.hotmetalservices/downloadable_documents.htm
Ludlow Model M Brochure
"A new Step Forward..." (Model M)
Note: This document was scanned in sections and stitched together. It is a trifold brochure the right flap of which is half-width. In the digitizations, I've included part of the middle fold on its page as well (that is, on page 4 of the PDF the left half of the PDF page is the right half of the recto of the original center fold while the right half of the page is the original right fold; on page 5 of the PDF, the left half of the PDF page is the original right fold while the right half of the page is the left half of the verso of the center fold). It's more confusing to explain than to see. This is a 45 Megabyte PDF composed of JPEG versions of the composite images.
3 New Product Developments From Ludlow. (Chicago: Ludlow Typograph Company, [no date]). In addition to The Model M Ludlow Typograph, this brochure includes the Model K Elrod (for more information on Elrods, see the Elrod Strip-Casting Machine Notebooks) (for more information on the Swiftape, see the Swiftape Notebooks) The image at left links to a presentation of this brochure at The Internet Archive. For convenience, here is a local copy of the PDF (332 Megabytes): 3-new-product-developments-from-ludlow.pdf
Ludlow Model S Brochure
4-page brochure with coverletter. The Model S had a stationary crucible. It was not a success.
A different digitization of this brochure, done by Edward Denovan, appears on Dave Seat's Hot Metal Services website at http://www.hotmetalservices.com/downloadable_documents.htm
The Ludlow Supersurfacer [brochure]
The Ludlow Supersurfacer. (Chicago: Ludlow Typograph Company, [no date]). A four-page folded brochure, along with a cover letter dated January 14, 1957 from the Ludlow Typograph Company's Boston office to the Torrington (CT) Register. This was scanned in sections and stitched together. The image at left links to a presentation of this brochure at The Internet Archive. For convenience, here is a local copy of the PDF (87 Megabytes): ludlow-supersurfacer-brochure-c1-0600rgbjpg.pdf
And, because I like the Supersurfacer rather a lot (it is an elegant, simple machine - and one of the few machines in my shop which doesn't require a pallet jack to move), here are relatively high resolution (1200dpi) versions of all of the illustrations from the Supersurfacer brochure, presented losslessly as PNG files. For the icons below, I've rotated and cropped the images a bit, but the PNG files they link to are the original scans. Most of these are about 100 Megabytes in size (but the first one, with a general view of the machine, is 181 Megabytes):
New Universal Matrix Cabinet
Ludlow New Universal Matrix Cabinet. (Chicago: Ludlow Typograph Company, [no date]). A four-page folded brochure. This was scanned in sections and stitched together. The image at left links to a presentation of this brochure at The Internet Archive. For convenience, here is a local copy of the PDF (87 Megabytes): ludlow-new-universal-matrix-cabinet-brochure-0600rgbjpg.pdf
I find the illustrations in this brochure particularly interesting because of the vertical channel for accommodating advertising figures (etc.) and for the use of removable trays for spaces and division quads.
