The reasons? The products’ strength and durability of course. The nameplates can be chemically etched, screen printed, or digitally printed.
Etched metal nameplates are excellent for highly corrosive or abrasive environments. The recessed image, typically filled with paint, is protected from surface level grinding, scratching, and marring. Even if paint may eventually come out, the etched image remains visible, ensuring legibility for many more years to come.
Digital printing is ideal for complex imagery, gradients, and nameplates with many colors. Through applied surface protections, we can produce durable nameplates that resist color fading, even outdoors!
Screen printed nameplates are inherently more durable than digitally printed nameplates and are cost effective at medium to high quantities. Although they are not as durable as etched nameplates, they will still last many years in any environment without needing additional protections.
In industrial settings, heat, moisture and corrosion are constant threats to the appearance and integrity of machinery and equipment. This also holds true to their attached metal nameplates. In these extreme environments, stainless steel nameplates have become the go-to material due to their remarkable resistance to the threat of corrosion and chemical solvents with minimal upkeep.
You will find Cubbison stainless steel nameplates used in industries such as heavy equipment, oil & gas, transportation, and defense, as well as displayed on products such as transformers, pumps, motors, and piping.
Cubbison regularly stocks stainless steel in thicknesses ranging from .012 - .125. Any size not in stock can be readily manufactured to exacting specifications.
To brighten and burnish our stainless steel nameplates, Cubbison offers a chemical brightening process that removes oxides and contaminants that can build up during the manufacturing process. To add an impressive shine to your nameplates, we utilize a number of different processes that will achieve the perfect look you are after.
For most metal thicknesses we offer machining services such as edging and roll-forming. If you require a special look to the nameplate we can provide a variety of options. Also, through roll-forming the plate can be curved to precisely fit round surfaces such as pipes or columns.
