Variable Information Tags

MPC’s variable information tags are designed to last, giving you the assurance that your assets will be easily identified for the life of the part. Choose from durable metal and plastic tags pre-printed with human readable content, consecutive serial numbers, bar codes, and complex variable graphic images. Need real-time production labels? Choose metal data plate blanks to mark using your own laser marking, engraving, stamping or other processes.

Our variable information tags are well suited for equipment tags, heavy-duty industrial applications, warehouses, controlled climates, and even the harshest conditions including exposure long-term exposure to UV, extreme temperatures, abrasion, chemicals and solvents. Additionally, they meet many Department of Defense and aerospace specifications, as well as other industry standards.
