Engraved Equipment tags

Engraved tags for equipment display critical information about safety, instruction, identification and more. They are typically utilized on heavy machinery and by industrial equipment manufacturers to display part numbers and ownership as well as operational information on control panels, push buttons, switches, dials, valves, out of service components,  and more.  Additional industry sectors using engraved nameplates and tags include military, aerospace, transportation and commercial manufacturing.

The shapes of engraved tags can be customized to conform to specific applications such as control panels showing multiple lights, screens and switches, all needing descriptive texts or a semi-circular shape to fit around a valve and identify its function. Engraved tags for equipment can also be customized with barcodes, company names and logos for asset management and to identify ownership.  Out of Service tags can be configured with hanging chains for temporary display on equipment that is temporarily non-functioning or under repair.

Engraved nameplates and tags for equipment can be made of plastic or metal depending upon the application. Both can be suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Metal tags will hold up to extreme temperature variations. Plastic tags are non-conductive for use on electronic components.  Plastic engraving stock is available in several thicknesses and a variety of color combinations of engraved text colors against contrasting background colors to coordinate with mounting surfaces or to highlight information with stark contrast.

The transportation industry utilizes engraved tags for a multitude of applications.  Train, ship and aircraft controls require numerous nameplates and faceplates to mark operating controls and procedures.  Entry and exit areas require similar control nameplates in addition to passenger safety signs and procedures which can require various colors for visibility and compliance.
