Our metal data plates are fully customizable with any information.
This allows for virtually unlimited customization. We can add nearly anything you can imagine, including images, designs, logos, and more.
Make your plates stand out, or just make sure they fit every requirement – entirely up to you.
Organizations across the globe utilize custom data plates for a variety of purposes. The following information depicts a few examples of how Metal Marker’s data plates have been used:
- Manufacturing: Manufacturing plants and factories label their machinery and equipment to easily depict the model number and ensure proper use. The nameplates can also be used for model designation for easy equipment identification.
- Construction: Construction equipment and tools need to be labeled with pertinent safety information and tolerances. Furthermore, when a manufactured home and mobile home data needs to identify they were built in compliance with HUD manufactured home construction and safety standards. Data plates are a perfect way to present the performance verification certificate.
- Aerospace: Aircraft data plates can be attached to the fuselage of the plane to depict proper ISO and other FAA compliance.
What makes for a good new data plate? One that lasts as long as you need it to.
Many work environments include chemical exposure, inclement weather, wear and tear, and everything in between. If your metal tag is no longer legible after a few weeks, it isn’t the right fit.
Our high-quality plate solutions can last upwards of 20+ years in the harshest environments, if necessary.
Knowing your application is half the battle. From there we can help you choose the material and process which best fits your needs.
At Metal Marker, everything starts with high-quality metal materials.
Aluminum data plates are lightweight, yet very durable. The anodization process adds the ability to colorize your plates. Photo anodized aluminum (MetalPhoto) is a very popular option.
Stainless steel data plates offer top of the line durability. The metal substrate itself will hold up to a large amount of wear and last for many years.
Certain applications require other materials, such as brass. Some customers prefer the vintage appearance it provides, or have special requirements for their plates.
While metal materials are tough, your process choice will determine the durability of the design itself.
Photo anodization, or MetalPhoto, creates an incredibly long-lasting design. The serial number information is embedded in the layers of anodized aluminum.
This identification plate is recommended for most industrial applications as it is highly durable. Photo anodized plates are rated for over 20 years (including outdoors). Plus, you can use any image, barcode, or design.
Engraving and etching provide customization and the option for a color fill.
Screen printing offers low-cost full-color designs but gives up quite a bit in durability. This is best suited for indoor environments.
Simply put: there is a process for every application.
