Solutions for the Transportation Industry

The economies of the world count on the reliability of the transportation industry. Likewise, the transportation industry counts on the reliability of its fleets and equipment. Extreme temperatures, salt, impact abrasions, and other environmental factors can cause wear and tear, endanger employees, and reduce productivity.


Count on Industry-Worthy Products

The Cubbison Company has decades of experience working with OEMs and global transportation companies. As a result, we have acquired expertise in helping companies design durable, industry-suitable nameplate, label, and overlay solutions that can be used for:

  • barcoding and UID for cargo tracking and fleet management
  • branding
  • equipment specifications
  • operating instructions
  • safety procedures and warnings
  • simplified user experience

Nameplates and labels can be used to integrate barcoding and UID capabilities. This technology is essential to the transportation industry because it allows for the tracking of cargo, inventory, and fleets. Without this, transportation companies face significantly greater risks to asset management, daily operations, and logistics.

Additionally, durable overlays can be customized to provide user-friendly, visual points of interaction for switch gears, drives, control and instrumentation panels, motors, and generators.

Selecting the right substrate for your nameplate, label, or overlay is necessary to ensure durability, lasting readability, and compliance with regulatory and maintenance compliance. At times, your application might call for a lightweight, flexible material to satisfy product size and weight limitations. At other times, your product application could require a more rigid substrate, such as stainless steel, aluminum, or Metalphoto®.

Selecting the best adhesive is an equally important design consideration, especially in harsh environments common to the transportation industry.

The Cubbison Company offers a variety of substrates and adhesives so that you can manufacture nameplates, labels, and overlays that will withstand environments unique to the transportation industry, including exposure to:

  • chemicals
  • extreme temperatures
  • intense sunlight
  • prolonged high pressure
  • ongoing vibration

Engage in the Industrial Internet of Things

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has created a connectedness among products, businesses, and cities. Transportation companies are part of the solution, integrating smart devices that are central to driver safety, fleet management, logistics, scheduling, vehicle diagnostics and maintenance, and the whole of the transportation infrastructure.

The Cubbison Company supports the flexible electronics and user-interface demands of the transportation industry, including membrane switches, sensors, and touchscreens. These products are designed for millions of actuations, often outlasting the equipment they control. To this, we can add the value of eliminating inadvertent actuations resulting from gloved operators or harsh environmental conditions. 

Collaborate with a Single Manufacturer

The Cubbison Company can comply with your specifications or we can work with you to customize solutions that will function reliably, even in the most rigorous environments.

Because we offer turnkey services, you can eliminate the inconvenience of working with multiple manufacturers:

  • design and engineering
  • manufacturing
  • material sourcing
  • prototyping
  • testing
  • timely delivery

The Cubbison Company is designated as a Certified Metalphoto® Converter.


Metalphoto® seals images, such as machine-readable barcodes and serialized data, inside of anodized aluminum, making them resistant against corrosion, sunlight, abrasion, temperature, and chemicals. The process results in exceptionally high-resolution images that can help verify product authenticity, prevent counterfeiting, and satisfy regulatory compliance. 

Flexible Electronics and Human-Machine Interface Solutions

The Cubbison Company manufactures specified and customized flexible electronics and human-machine interface (HMI) products:

  • membrane switches provide affordable and easily customizable user interface options
  • printed sensors to monitor, quantify, and self-correct mechanical and environmental factors, such as temperature, humidity, position, force, oxygen, and more
  • touchscreens can be designed to eliminate inadvertent actuations, even when used by gloved operators or in challenging environmental conditions​​
