Embossing is like the raised name and account number on a credit card. The embosser used for our printing is in the same style but slightly larger than a name on a credit card.
block style uppercase letters and numbers are 3/16” high. Metal is .015 to .025 thick. Text is raised up from tags surface. Required when powder coating or painting occurs.
Our equipment will emboss up to 8 lines of text with each line holding up to 28 characters. Tags and plates up to 2 ½”inches high and 4” wide can be embossed. Tag and plate materials are typically .015 to .024in thickness so as to be compatible with the embossing process.
Unique because text is raised, embossed metal tags and plates are a choice turned to or often required for Leak Detection (LDAR) and Fugitive Emission Inspections, meter and equipment identification and inventory use in manufacturing and production industries.
Embossed tags and plates have an advantage when subjected to powder coating or painting because the raised text will remain legible and will not fill in as recessed text can.
Embossed text has the appearance similar to text which is raised on a typical credit card. Letters are uppercase and block style for quick and legible reading. Our embossing equipment produces 3/16” high numbers, uppercase letters, and punctuation symbols.
