Benefits of Equipment Labels

Equipment labels and tags are common in most industries today because they make it easy to track and manage valuable company assets. With several high-quality label materials available, companies can select the ideal style of equipment ID label most suitable for each application. Some examples of the types of assets that are frequently labeled include:

  • Computers and IT equipment
  • Fleets, such as trucks and commercial passenger vehicles
  • Military and aerospace equipment
  • Industrial equipment
  • HVAC equipment
  • Utility assets, such as utility poles and meters
  • Medical devices, such as defibrillators

Equipment labels are used for a variety of purposes beyond asset identification, as well, such as warning or caution labels, inspection and compliance tags, instructional labels, rating plate labels, and more. Custom labels and tags offer many benefits, including:

  • Effective Tracking. One of the most important reasons for using equipment labels is the ability to locate moveable assets when they’re needed. This is especially true for large facilities or multi-site operations when assets are transferred between locations. Labeling each piece of equipment with an equipment ID label with a barcode allows you to maintain a central database of your moveable assets in an enterprise asset management (EAM) system. When equipment tags are equipped with barcode labels, assets can be easily scanned to document its current location as well as important usage data. Maintaining a central asset database with real-time data means assets are less likely to be lost, saving your business money on costly equipment replacements.
  • Modernized Systems. Equipment tags enable efficient inventory and asset management by allowing you to connect each asset to a digital system. Labels that include barcodes can be easily used with today’s software platforms and barcode readers to give companies better visibility into their assets. These modern facilities management solutions are affordable, save time for your staff, and create a reliable tracking history. Using equipment ID labels not only helps with regulatory compliance and audits but can also prevent theft and unauthorized transfer by clearly identifying ownership.
  • Easily Communicate Essential Information for Safety & Compliance. Custom labels and tags can be used to convey critical safety information, such as warning labels or safe operating instructions. Proper labeling improves workplace safety and helps to ensure compliance with relevant safety regulations, such as FMCSA regulations for truck and trailer data plates and GHS requirements for hazard communication labels.
  • Improved Maintenance Management. Equipment labels allow for more efficient maintenance management. They can be used in conjunction with preventive maintenance software to track all maintenance activities for each asset, and many software solutions offer alerts to notify your maintenance management staff when an asset is due for routine maintenance. Maintenance workers can easily scan an asset’s barcode to accurately document maintenance and repairs performed. Staying on top of preventive maintenance helps to keep your valuable equipment in optimal working order, reducing unexpected breakdowns and workflow interruptions.
  • Customization. One of the best reasons for selecting equipment labels is the ability to customize them in any way you like. Selecting colors, designs, and fonts can help you create equipment ID labels that match your existing corporate branding. Label substrate, finish, and adhesive options give you the confidence to select materials that are well-suited for the operating environment and any potential environmental conditions. You can also select barcode symbologies that are compatible with your scanning equipment and software.

Common Use Cases for Equipment Tags

Equipment tags can be used in nearly any application that requires a permanent or semi-permanent marking to be placed on an asset. Some examples include safety communication, asset tracking, temporary labeling, and product identification. Here are a few common use cases for custom labels and tags:
  • Aerospace and Defense Compliance Tags. The aerospace and defense industries are regulated by a number of standards that define how assets must be tracked. These can apply to important choices including the type of technology that is used and the materials of construction for an equipment label. In order to ensure compliance, many companies turn to high durability options such as Metalphoto® equipment tags.
  • Commercial HVAC Nameplates. The HVAC units that are used in commercial facilities take a tremendous burden and must often operate under extreme weather conditions and for extended periods of time. Customized equipment labels that are used for HVAC drives and generators must be able to withstand these harsh environments without degradation. Many vendors use custom equipment tags that can be fabricated with durable substrates that are well-suited for these conditions.
  • Industrial & Manufacturing Instructional Labels. Instructional labels are used for equipment with specific maintenance requirements or operating instructions to clearly convey essential information to ensure the safe and efficient operation of equipment and required maintenance steps to keep assets in optimal working condition.
  • Rating Plates for Trucks, Trailers & Equipment. The transportation industry is subject to regulations under FMCSA and NHTSA, which require that vehicles are marked with information such as the vehicle make and model, VIN number, gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), brake system, and more. Equipment used in other industries is subject to various regulations, as well, requiring equipment to have permanent rating plate labels, data plates, or compliance tags containing the equipment’s manufacturer, model number or serial number, load rating, and electrical specifications, as well as any essential operating or maintenance information.
