Heavy-Duty Equipment Requires Heavy-Duty Identification
Heavy, off-road equipment operate in rugged environments. Abrasion, hydraulic fluid, sunlight exposure and road salt corrosion threaten the readability of nameplates and labels, which can impede safe operation, cost companies downtime, and even lead to regulatory fines.
MPC’s Metalphoto® photosensitive anodized aluminum has been the material of choice for control panel faceplates, identification labels, and other durable equipment identification in the harshest operating environments such as construction, agriculture, forestry, mining, and drilling for more than 50 years.
Metalphoto applications for heavy, off-road equipment include:
- equipment data plates
- load charts
- panel faceplates
- barcode and maintenance labels

Specialized Material Options for Your Application
Metalphoto of Cincinnati offers nameplates in a variety of standard material options, including our proprietary Metalphoto® substrate. Metalphoto is photosensitive anodized aluminum, which features a silver and black photographic image that is embedded within the sapphire-hard anodic layer of the aluminum. This combination gives a Metalphoto part an outdoor life of over 20 years, and makes it extremely resistant to damage or degradation from environmental factors like abrasion, UV fading, harsh chemicals, extreme temperatures, and corrosion from saltwater exposure. The National Association of Graphic and Product Identification Manufacturers (GPI) Industry Standards and Practices Manual identifies Metalphoto as the most durable printed aluminum substrate available, and it has been trusted by industry, government and military organizations like Caterpillar, The US Navy, NASA, and Boeing for over 50 years. Metalphoto offers many unique features including:
- Lasts over 20 years outdoors without fading or degradation.
- Uniquely resistant to damage or degradation from environmental factors like abrasion, UV fading, harsh chemicals, extreme temperatures, and corrosion from saltwater exposure.
- Exceptional image resolution that allows for photo image, security and microprint options.
- Ability to support unique information, including a unique barcode or QR code and letter/number combination on every piece.
