ShotTag™ Metal Identification Tags


ShotTag™ has been developed to withstand the cleaning process of "Shot Blasting":

  • Utilizes a metal substrate with a chemical & heat resistant coating.
  • Resists ablative bead and shot blasting.

ShotTag™ is an ideal solution for:

  • Low-cost barcode tracking for identifying fabricated steel through typical painting operations.
  • When start-to-finish traceability is a must.



ShotTag™ features include real-time printing of custom information and resistance to common cleaning solutions and high-temperature paint curing. ShotTag™ is a metal barcode tag specifically formulated to survive the process of painting fabricated steel. The tags are attached to fabricated steel parts before painting via wire fasteners utilizing a pre-punched hole or slot in the tag. InfoSight’s complete range of laser tag printers, including the small desktop LabeLase®1000, LL28xx, and the JM410, may be utilized to image barcodes, standard text and even customer logos. The printed tags remain readable through the processes to the customer’s job site. Start “Error-Proofing” your process today.
