Stainless Steel Labels and Nameplates
Browse our gallery of stainless steel labels and nameplates, primarily manufactured per Military Standard 130 (mil-std-130) Construct 1, Construct 2 and Part Number Only specifications.
Laser bonded stainless steel nameplate with data laid out per Military Standard 130 Construct 1 specifications. Laser bonding uses a ceramic-based coating which bonds to a metal substrate when lased. The black text and two-dimensional (2D), machine-readable code are the bonded material. The yellow color will be cleaned off before shipping; it is a residual of the laser bonding.
Stainless steel nameplate with data laid out per Military Standard 130 Construct 2 specifications. We used an additive laser bonding material which permanently bonds with the metal as it lased, in order to get the marking to show up on the nameplate without deep engraving. The excess bonding additive is cleaned off before shipping. This is an ATA SPEC 2000 Chapter 9 formatted nameplate, even though it has an extra data element.
This stainless steel nameplate was marked using a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser and CerMark™. CerMark is a ceramic-based coating which bonds to a metal substrate when lased. The 2D code contains only the serial number with no ISO data wrappers.
This stainless steel label meets Military Standard 130 part number only requirements. The stainless steel is coated with an additive that bonds to the steel when marked using a CO2 laser. The 2D coded matrix contains the serial number only with no ISO data wrappers.
This stainless steel time capsule owned by Bill and Melinda Gates was buried during construction of their Lake Washington (Seattle, WA) home. The markings were made by annealing the stainless steel rather than cutting into it.
