Equipment ID Tags
Your equipment needs to be marked with pertinent information. Equipment inspection tags and Identification tags help ensure proper usage practices and calibration are being followed. In addition, this can prevent errors before they occur.
Identification tags also help when it’s time for inspections. Even if your equipment is not officially mandated to be marked by OSHA, equipment ID tags and equipment inspection tags can help aid inspectors or servicers to quickly and accurately complete their tasks.
In addition, having serial numbers on machines helps keep a clear inspection record.
Equipment Safety Tags
Safety is crucial, especially for industrial organizations. Conditions can be unsafe in areas such as construction sites or factories if the proper safety information is not communicated or adhered to.
Equipment safety signs can include weight/load tolerances, a service number, proper usage techniques to prevent accidents, and other calibration specifics.
Identification is also important when machinery is under maintenance. Defective equipment or machines under work orders can be dangerous to operate. Marking this equipment with a repair tag can prevent unintended or unsafe usage.
These tags or labels typically say “do not operate” or “do not enter”. This signage coupled with lockout tags are essential to a safe environment.
Our equipment tags are perfect for keeping your warehouse, factory, or job-site safe with clear and accurate information.
Asset Identification & Tracking Tags
Tracking and managing your equipment and other assets is crucial for your organization to be efficient and effective. By using metal equipment tags, you add a layer of traceability to your assets.
This can be as simple as a serialized embossed asset tag or as complex as a photo anodized nameplate with barcode labels integrated into a digital asset management tracking system.
The best solution is the one that fits with your organization. We are happy to work with you to find the perfect asset label solution.
A few examples of our material options include:
- Stainless Steel
- Cold Rolled Steel
Using durable, heavy duty metal materials for your equipment ensures that your labeling will stay sturdy and legible for years to come.
One of our most popular processes is photo anodization. With this process, we have the capability to add any customized design you need. This can be an image, a barcode, a logo, or any other data you require. Your aluminum tags can also include a colored background if necessary. This solution fits a variety of applications.
Worried about the durability of your design? With our photo anodization, you no longer have to. These tough metal equipment tags are rated for 20+ years outdoors, in all weather conditions. They are more than able to withstand the wear and tear of your industrial application.
Our embossing and stamping processes are tried and true methods for marking metal tags. This is a simple but effective solution that is used to mark equipment, tools, and other machinery.
These metal tags are typically attached with screws or wire. In the case of equipment valve tags, a wire can be used to hang them from the valve.
Unlike other processes, embossing and stamping create direct impressions in the metal. Stamping indents a design while embossing raises the characters upwards.
Since there is no ink to be removed, these designs are incredibly durable and long-lasting. You will see years of use out of these tags before they need to be replaced.
Marking blank tags in-house with an embossing machine or hand stamps is also an option.
If you must mark your equipment with a colored design, screen printing is a solid alternative. A custom design is printed onto the metal backing, creating a clear and easy to read image.
The biggest drawback is the downgrade in durability. Since these plates feature topical ink, that design is subject to wear and tear, as well as fading in sunlight.
While not as durable as other processes due to topical ink, screen printed designs do stand out from their metal surroundings, making them effective at communicating information.
