Operating Equipment Labels

All objects that perform a function in the production process and together form technical systems can and must be marked for various reasons. The labels used for this purpose are called operating equipment labels.

Hazardous Substance labels 

If hazardous substances flow through pipes, the labelling of the pipes must be supplemented by hazard symbols ("Globally Harmonized System of Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Chemicals" (GHS)).

Cable Tags

Cable tags (cable labels) are used where cables must be labeled and separated cleanly. In addition, cable tags ensure the traceability of the individually labeled cables and thus create a recognition value for a later point in time.

Pipeline Labels 

Pipeline labels (pipeline tapes, arrow plates) are used wherever pipes have to be labelled according to their flow substance. The flow direction must be labelled by an arrow. 

The labels must be permanently affixed along the entire pipeline at all operationally important and hazardous points. The size of the marking and the associated font size shall be determined by the required recognition distance.

Button Panels and System Labels

Push-button and insertion labels are used in a wide variety of equipment and operating elements. They exist in countless, often company-specific designs.

In addition to standard content, individual content is often also shown. These signs are fixed by clipping them into a sign holder or by gluing.

Type Plates

Type plates (rating plates, manufacturer plates) identify, classify and describe the means of production or the product to be labelled. The labelling often corresponds to a legal regulation or a legal standard.

The following information must be applied legibly and permanently to machines: Company name and address of the manufacturer, designation of the machine, CE marking, type or series designation, serial number (if available), year of manufacture (= completion of the machine or plant).

Machines and plants in the energy sector have to be labelled in many different ways. Different labels are used for this purpose.

An individual labelling standard helps to organise the production and procurement of labels. This also ensures the quality of the plant labelling.

Individual sign formats

Many PrintoLUX customers purchase sign formats from us that deviate from the standard sign formats listed in the format overviews. We can produce any format from PrintoLUX®-certified materials. Practically any desired finish can be implemented:
Whether holes, pointed or round corners, individual shaping etc. ... none of this is a problem; even when it comes to small or very small runs.
If required, we can also assemble the individual formats with different adhesives and apply them to our utility sheets for efficient printing.
