Industrial nameplates are used in demanding industries to display critical information. These metal plates may be found on any variety of surfaces. The plates display product names, equipment data, safety and health warnings, and other information.
The primary benefit of nameplates is that they provide increased durability and visibility in scenarios where other temporary means of identification would fail.
Nameplates are essential in most industrial applications. Their benefits and uses depend on their intended use. Safety labels, for example, protect employees and operators from harm. Identification plates promote a brand instead of only helping with identification.
Nameplates are frequently used across different industries for applications in the military and defense, aerospace, electrical, and heavy machinery sectors.
Military and defense professionals require anodized aluminum, aluminum, and brass nameplates for a variety of purposes. Critical data and identification plates provide safe working conditions near lethal weapons.
The aerospace industry also uses nameplates for identification purposes. One of the most frequent applications can be seen in aircraft placards, which help ensure safety.
Heavy machinery organizations may rely on similar identification plates or use safety and data plates for other purposes. Similar plates can be found in electrical applications. Experts within all of these industries use nameplates to identify, track, and signal crucial information.
Our clients have the choice to fully customize their nameplates to meet the unique needs of their application.
Metal vs. Plastic Nameplates
While metal nameplates often have a higher initial cost, they tend to be cheaper than their plastic counterparts in the long term. Metal nameplates also offer more versatile options compared to plastic. Metal can be marked through a variety of processes, while plastic is less machinable. Plastic nameplates are ideal for organizations that may be working in indoor applications.
Organizations that opt to purchase metal nameplates can select from four materials: stainless steel, aluminum, anodized aluminum, and brass.
- Aluminum nameplates. Aluminum is impact-resistant and an excellent electrical conductor.
- Anodized aluminum nameplates. Anodized aluminum is ideal for applications that require more hardness and durability than what regular aluminum offers.
- Stainless steel nameplates. Stainless steel offers exceptional corrosion and temperature resistance.
- Brass nameplates. Brass provides resistance to several rough conditions, including heat, cold moisture, and certain chemicals. This material also provides a decorative finish with its golden tinge.
Our nameplates can be further customized depending upon client preferences. Blank name plates allow for sticker placement and in-house customization at a later date. They are ideal for bulk projects and applications with fluid requirements.
Engraved and printed nameplates are available for customers who need finished and usable products upon delivery. Engraved nameplates are achieved through a laser or rotary-based process. Printed nameplates have graphics and texts printed directly onto nameplates.
