Calling on over 45 years’ experience across all market sectors, our products are manufactured in-house to the highest standards of British manufacturing — ISO 9001:2008.
Naturally, this can encompass a wide range of potential materials and types. Our team is here to help you identify the best materials, coats and finishes depending on the particular application and environment of use of your products.
When it comes to metals, anodised aluminium provides durability and scratch resistance — ideal for product identity and asset management, guarding against theft. Your needs may also be served with a stainless steel solution, etched and infilled to meet your branding requirements.
Plastic nameplates may better suit your requirements, such as for smaller runs or prototype purposes. Using digital printing, polycarbonate solutions can include high-quality definition and variable data (such as serial numbers). With under-surface printing, you still have a durable, long-lasting solution.
Available in a range of materials and finishes, these represent a permanent marking solution; a very durable option for harsh environments and applications. This commonly includes the oil and gas, marine and environmental industries where the product need to withstand extreme weather conditions.
They are produced by chemically etching the text detail from the surface of the material. This is then paint-infilled to provide contrast for ease of reading.
Available in 304 or 316 stainless steel, these nameplates can be etched chemically, or for a more economical solution, we can also offer screen printed steel plates, where text detail is surface printed.
A more traditional solution, again these can be etched and infilled or screen printed. They are lacquered for outdoor applications and provide a long lasting finish. They are also all available in a range of thicknesses and can be supplied with either self-adhesive tape or fixing holes.
For an attractive, durable finish, text detail is sealed within the grain of the aluminium. The aluminium is electrically charged within a sulphuric acid solution which forces the surface to oxidise in a controlled manner and opens the pores.
Ink is then either silkscreen printed or digitally printed into the pores before the aluminium is sealed to provide a hard-wearing finish. The digital printing option makes the process suitable for low volume requirements as well as printing variable data and barcodes.
This popular type of nameplate is widely used across many industries, including electronics and assembly, industrial equipment and machine control panels.
Under surface printed onto polycarbonate, polyester or acrylic, these provide a durable finish as the text is visible through the material itself.
Acrylic nameplates can be produced on material up to 10mm thick and are laser cut to size to give a good ‘polished’ finish to the edges. These can be digitally printed for low volume requirements and, with the laser cutting option, tooling is not required.
Whatever type of equipment or environment you’re working with, our experienced team is always on hand.
With over 45 years’ experience working with all market sectors, trust our team to help you determine the best material and finishing process to ensure a perfect match for the equipment’s application and environment.
