Installation and equipment labelling

Legible marking of individual parts of an installation is a crucial factor, which above all else guarantees occupational safety. It also makes access to the installation and its operation much easier. The most common form of marking industrial fittings and equipment is the placing of identification plates with the suitable description of the particular element directly on it or in its close vicinity.

The description can be in written form or encoded in an alphanumeric code, e.g. KKS. It should be remembered that both the description and the code should be brief and concise enough to make it quick for employees to read. When an alphanumeric code or descriptive abbreviations are used, an instruction of how to decode the plates should be compiled and made available to employees. The employees should also undergo appropriate training on how to read the code or abbreviations.


  • Alucer plates

    Alucer is a special technology developed by Elmetal, which enables printing on aluminium. It is an excellent alternative to plastic and stainless steel plates. The limited temperature resistance of plastic plates and the inability of placing colour on stainless steel plates make Alucer plates a versatile option.

  • Composed plates

    Composed plates comprise a profile with a slide-in insert on which a number, description or other information is printed. Additionally, pictograms, arrows, warning signs and medium-identifying colours can be placed in the profile

  • Engraved plates

    Plates can be engraved by laser or mechanically (with an engraving cutter). We engrave on PVC laminates, aluminium, stainless steel and other materials, as required. The size of the plate, its design (e.g. rounded corners), the layout of the text, and the holes needed for mounting can be tailored to customer specifications.

  • Fixation elements

    Elmetal has a wide range of fixation elements used to affix plates and signs to installations. They make the mounting of signage durable, legible and aesthetically pleasing.
