Apparently, this one is not for your pegboards.
Founded in 1911, Intertype produced typcasting machines similar to Linotype.
By that time, most of the original patents for the Linotype had expired and so the basic works of the Intertype were essentially the same.
According to wikipedia, typecasting or "line casting" was a method to set type for newspapers, magazines, and posters from the late 19th century to the 1970s and 1980s.
The machine was a hot metal typesetting system that cast blocks of metal type for individual uses, a significant improvement over the manual, letter-by-letter typesetting using a composing stick.
Typecasting was replaced by phototypesetting and computer typesetting.
