Which Metal Marking Machine Will Best Fit My Needs?

Our metal stamping machines are suitable for marking items in harsh environments such as manufacturing plants, power plants, oil & gas facilities, and more. To determine if and/or what type of marking equipment is advantageous for your end use, consider factors such as:

  • How much text/data will be applied to a typical tag or plate?
  • What is the volume of tags and/or plates you anticipate marking each day, week, and/or month?
  • Will you be marking tags and/or plates as part of an ongoing and /or long term basis versus a single project and /or short period of time?

How Does Metal Tag Embossing Equipment Work?

Metal tag embossing machines imprint characters onto a metal piece with specified character sets that are installed inside a drum in the machine. Characters are pushed by a lever that embeds the character into the metal piece, making it far more durable than ink printing.

Why Should I Use a Metal Tag Stamping Machine?

Metal tag stamping is an extremely durable method for marking metal items. It is extremely reliable for outdoor work environments. The tags that are metal stamped will be able to withstand corrosion, tarnish, paint, and environmental damage making them better suited for harsh environments.
