Automated manufacturing equipment – plastic processing, metal forming, CNC fabrication and the like – operate in environments with abrasion, heat, and hydraulic fluid exposure. Equipment nameplates and labels must withstand abuse and represent the manufacturer’s brand image. Damaged, corroded or otherwise illegible nameplates threaten the readability of identification items; impeding safe operation, costing companies downtime and leading to regulatory fines.
MPC’s Metalphoto® photosensitive anodized aluminum has been the material of choice for high-end manufacturing equipment nameplates for more than 50 years.
Specified by industry leaders such as Milacron, Cannon Instrument, Dover Flexo and Cincinnati Sub-Zero, Metalphoto has proven long-term durability. That is because the Metalphoto image is sealed beneath a sapphire-hard anodized layer, providing resistance to corrosion, sunlight degradation, abrasion, extreme temperatures, and chemical exposure.
Metalphoto is used for the following manufacturing equipment identification applications:
- equipment nameplates
- process control component labels
- test & measurement equipment nameplates
- operator faceplates/control panels
