Aluminum tags are not just for dogs and military personnel. They really go the distance in manufacturing, cost control, inventory, chemical processing and a dozen other applications.
These are lightweight and easy to use. The aluminum material is traditionally a low cost material to work with and easy to imprint or write upon. For this reason, the labels are the traditional first choice in keeping things under control.
Aluminum Tags are a Big Help to Manufacturers
Many consumers never witness how they help manufacturers. It takes too much time to roll over the vat of materials and the massive fabric roller. They are the indicators of what lie inside.
Being metal, they are sturdy enough to withstand the wear and tear of a manufacturing environment. There may be strange vapors, forklifts and heavy machinery. Typically, paper and vinyl decals aren’t suited to such a rough environment. Metal tags provide the ideal solution. Providing the best of both worlds, they are both tough and light.
They are great for inventory control, too. They may be easily affixed with a twist tie to pots, vats, barrels, pallets of materials, and much more. The accountant simply needs to read the information conveniently listed on the tags. It will state the contents, date of purchase, and other relevant information like an account number. This makes the monthly or annual inventory processing a thousand times easier.
Varying Shapes and Quality Material
Aluminum tags can be most usually rectangular with square or radius corners, but may also be die cut oval shaped or any other shape your company may choose. They are produced in a plain silver color, since they don’t need to be fancy. They do the job with no fanfare, and in this case, less is more. They also can be printed in many different colors.
The colors can help a manager immediately identify if an item is in a different sub-category. The color is easily recognized and differentiated for the inventory control manager’s immediate recognition and classification. Once the information is obtained, it may registered into the log and noted.
They can be separated into distinct categories…typically there are adhesive labels that can are printed and either have an ink receptive surface for writing on with a pen or are embossable using a ball point pen.
They are also made with thin metal which may have a hole punched on one side or end that can either be embossed or written on, although most often these types are embossed with an engraving machine or the like. They can be attached to your pet’s collar or pieces of equipment, and can also be printed and engraved or embossed, depending on the manufacturer.
Any of these can be used for pipe markings, equipment marking, or for warranty purposes, and the aluminum decals have an aggressive acrylic adhesive that will help them to stick for years to come, provided the surface from where it is being affixed to is clean, oil free, and dry.
The items are a permanent member of the decal genre, and until some genius comes up with a better idea, are not likely to disappear soon. If you have an item or function where you need to know when the warranty expires or the next service needs to be performed, these are indispensable. Look here for custom-made aluminum tags.
