Some industrial nametag products last longer than others. This article discusses one of the viable options for industrial nameplates used in harsh environments.
Bad weather conditions, extreme heat, direct sunlight, adverse weather conditions, and corrosive chemicals are some of the harsh conditions nameplates should survive and prove sustainability. While the materials used are important, printing processes play an equally critical role in creating longer lasting markers. The process used is a critical determining factor that affects the durability of your nameplate and ultimately the name of your brand or logo inscribed on it. To make the most of your nameplates, one of the reliable processes is chemical etching.
All corporate companies agree that the reputation of a product or equipment depends much on lasting custom nameplates, tags and labels as on the product itself. The nameplate bears great responsibility for building your company’s image in the market. If the nameplate is hidden or unclear, it will adversely affect the delivery of your product and service. Chemical engraving is one of the clear options when trying to decide on a process for metal nameplates with a lasting effect.
Chemical etching is widely appreciated for hanging nameplates that withstand tough conditions. Because the name implies chemical etching, it hides certain areas of the metal with chemical resistant material and removes the desired amount of material exposed with chemicals. It can be manufactured efficiently in any material such as stainless steel, aluminum, brass, alloys, etc. And for that perfect finish, it is baked after filling with varnishes. It is often complemented by screen printing to avoid division. Specific adhesives for bonding and welding are added to it. Chemical engraved nameplates have an advantage over other unwashed processes and are therefore ideal for extreme outdoor applications. You can also use chemical plates engraved on tanks and trailers, trucks, watches, control panels and aircraft, asset and property gauges; and operational and warning signs for various electronics, military vehicles and machines, among others.
Chemical etched products can also be analised by visual systems in the manufacturing process to determine the identity of the material used to make the nametag. Examples include a prescriptive force of an eyeglass lens, or the kind of backlight lens used in Deep Civics. This ensures that the part is sorted and used properly during the manufacturing process and that the correct number of parts is produced based on expected sales for final assembled components.
