Common Uses for Equipment Nameplates

Custom nameplates for equipment have a wide variety of uses in industries throughout the world. Some of the most critical applications are in the transportation industry where aircraft, boats, and trucks require the use of highly durable nameplates.

Industrial nameplates are also frequently used to tag manufacturing equipment in the energy and oil & gas industries. You will also find industrial nameplates and tags used for construction, HVAC, and commercial applications in the government, telecom, and technology fields. The following are a few of the uses for custom nameplates and data plates.

Safety Information

Keeping safety information visible and easily accessible for operators and staff is an important part of health and safety management. Information such as guidelines, warnings, limitations, and restrictions can be easily printed on custom safety nameplates and placed directly on equipment or posted in important locations. Industrial nameplates are also very useful for marking hazardous equipment, chemical cabinets, and other hardware.

Asset Tagging

Plant managers are often tasked with tracking and monitoring the assets that are located within the facility. Custom nameplates offer an effective solution for labeling assets with a durable tag that can also include useful information such as barcodes, QR codes, and serial numbers. General property tags can also be used to mark nearly any item with important information about ownership or proper use. Asset tagging provides a high level of traceability for inventory control and plant management activities.

Equipment Identification

Durable data plates and nameplates are commonly used by businesses to mark the equipment they own with identifying information or important notifications. They’re especially useful for distributed fleets, such as trucks and buses that are geographically distributed during transit. Identification plates allow companies to label equipment with a common set of markings that can be easily identified by rotating drivers, maintenance staff, or customers.

Branding and Product Management

When a product is manufactured, it is commonly labeled with a series of labels, tags, or data plates that help the company convey important product information directly on the item. These data plates can be branded with a company logo in some cases and often provide useful details that the consumer should know. Some examples of the product information that is often included on such tags and data plates include model numbers, specifications, manufacturing information, and serial numbers.
