Applications for Nameplates, ID Tags & Plates and Labels
Item Unique Identification (IUID)
MIL-STD 130 purchases for the US Department of Defense that qualify for having a IUID affixed or marked on the item. The IUID is a specifically defined 2D Data Matrix Code that contains a uniform string of vendor and part information. Often the items requiring an IUID are either large or sensitive in nature, making an ID Tag or Plate an ideal alternative to direct part marking.
Machinery & Equipment
Machine and equipment manufacturers include vendor and product information on everything they produce for either marketing/branding purposes or for legal and regulatory requirements. Custom laser engraved ID Tags and Plates are great alternative to ink stamping or labels that will eventually deteriorate and fail.
Internal controls and safe guarding of fixed assets are critical for large asset intensive operations such as manufacturers and distributors. Asset Tags with machine readable codes make asset verification and inventory processes efficient and accurate.
ID Tags and Plates are often used to give visual reference on industrial equipment and machinery. Chemical processing plants, refineries and other production facilities can use tags and plates on equipment and plumbing to reference inspection data, caution and warning information and instructional information.
Common Material Types with ID Tags & Plates
Stainless Steel – Laser Marking is used on bare stainless steel surfaces to change the color and create an image. Stainless provides the flexibility of having multiple colors within the same image. Laser Engraving is used if the tag or plate requires depth due to harsh conditions.
Aluminum – Laser Marking is an option but getting a dark color mark is challenging regardless the type of laser used. Laser Marked aluminum usually produces a bright white mark. Aluminum parts are typically anodized, powder coated or painted and the part is Laser Engraved, specifically using ablation to remove the surface coat.
Plastic – Laser Marking or Laser Engraving is possible depending on the material. Plastics can be multi-layered with color providing varied color options. Plastic tags and plates can also be painted, either way Laser Engraved is used to remove the top layer to expose the color underneath and create the image or text.
Titanium and Others – ID Tags and Plates can be created from virtually any material type. If your application is best suited using a rugged material like titanium or a non-corrosive plastics like HDPE, Accubeam can produce it.
