Equipment marking that does not fade

Weidmüller has come up with a marking system for assembly systems which can print on metallic markers without the need for an oven or any similar additional equipment.

This finely-tuned holistic system is open to high levels of customised solutions – thanks to the freedom of being able to create individual layouts and enabling uncomplicated importing of data from other systems.

The MetalliCard system is better suited to demanding applications than markers made from polyamide. They are much better able to withstand harsh environments – including high temperatures, climate swings, UV radiation and other environmental loads. Chemically resistant (tested to DIN ISO 175) MetalliCard has successfully completed wipe tests with many different substances.

Users are able choose between riveting and gluing or using stainless steel cable ties or holders to secure the metal markers. The rectangular markers are available in sizes from 27 mm x 18 mm through to 85 mm x 54 mm. Round markers and a stainless steel version for marking cables ties are also available.
