Product Identification with an Embossed Metal Plate

August 11, 2011


Embossed Metal Plate

Part marking is a necessity in the manufacturing world.  Depending on the process of the plant, different methods of marking are preferred.  One option for marking a part is with metal plates and tags.  This method is desired for industries that don’t want a part or product permanently marked with a bar code, lettering, etc.  In this case, a metal plate or tag is embossed with information for identification, and the tag can easily be removed from the product if need be.

Embossing on a metal plate or tag is the desired method for manufacturers and plants where harsh conditions and general wear and tear are a threat to the product identification.  Depending on the machine, embossing can produce the following:

  • Standard alpha numeric text
  • Windows fonts and special characters
  • 2D data matrix bar codes
  • Dot matrix
  • Logos and graphics

The image above is an example of a standard alpha numeric embossed plate.  This can be accomplished by a metal embossing machine.  Metal embossing machines have the ability to produce various types of marking, such as the ones mentioned above.
