GSM offers High Temperature Rugged Barcoding solutionAnna Pus
High temperature applications are no longer a problem as GSM has developed high temperature rugged barcode labels which will withstand temperatures in excess of 800’C with no detrimental effect on the ability to successfully scan the code.
GSM Graphic Arts can now offer high temperature stainless steel barcode labels using a refined etching process which can be run on a variety of thicknesses of 304 stainless steel. These have been successfully tested to temperatures upwards of 800°C with no detrimental effect on the scanning of the barcode when the nameplate has cooled down.
Typically the linear barcode would be etched through the 0.5mm barcode label and could either be directly applied to a suitably contrasting surface or fused onto a backing plate. In addition to the etched barcode lines we can also chemically etch human readable numbers and other details required, such as logos and other identification information.
