From proper use and maintenance to information for voltage, pressure, and temperature ratings, companies around the world use industrial data plates to communicate critical information. Metal data plates can be found on every day equipment in both residential and commercial settings.

Common Applications

Data plates communicate vital information for equipment installed both indoors and outdoors, in harsh environments, near heat, or those exposed to vibration and grease. Other applications include common household equipment so that safe operating or preventative maintenance information is displayed.

Household and Commercial Appliances

Washers, dryers, ranges, refrigerators, food warming equipment, convection ovens, and microwaves all have a need for data plates to ensure that the proper voltage and electricity settings are used. 

Electric Tools

Power drills, nail guns, circular saws, grinders, and sanders are essential tools that can be found in every day garages as well as professional contractor tool boxes. Safe operating instructions and preventative maintenance directions are examples of the information displayed on ID Plates.

Industrial Equipment

Manufacturing environments have a variety of equipment that needs to communicate information for voltage, pressure, and temperature ratings. Generators, punch presses, pumps, and conveyors are examples of equipment in this setting.

Heating and Cooling Equipment

Residential and commercial air conditioners or furnaces all have regulations to display important settings, min/max voltages, temperature ratings and the like. 

Heavy Equipment and Commercial Vehicles

Large pieces of machinery, land movers, mining equipment, semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles all display ID Plates which share company information. They also may feature manufacturer specs for maximum load capacity, model and serial number.
