InfoSight is known to provide identification and traceability solutions to the metals industries, but did you know we can do the same for many other industries? The term “metals industry” casts a wide net, and different applications require different tags and printers. The Industry Resources tab on our website is designed to help our customers find the identification tags and labels that are most suitable for their application.
We have eight (8) tabs to steer visitors to our website in the right direction:
Asset Inventory Control – This tab is for government applications, schools, offices, food service, hospitals, and laboratories that need to identify and track mobile assets in a variety of environments. From durable identification of laptops that are checked out to lasting barcodes on carts subject to harsh cleaning chemicals, InfoSight has several recommendations to identify and track these valuable assets.
Industrial MRO & LDAR – Industrial Maintenance and Leak Detection and Repair programs require significant documentation. Barcoding components saves time during the documentation of maintenance. InfoSight’s metal tags are designed to be easily readable and durable in these industrial settings – standing up to high temperatures, chemical exposure, and UV exposure.
Industrial Equipment Manufacturing - It is important to be able to identify and track a product through the manufacturing, distribution, and sale of the equipment. InfoSight’s tags are an efficient tool for manufacturers to identify their products for a lifetime.
Metals - Identifying products in the metals industry is InfoSight’s specialty. We understand the complexities and importance of identifying various products that may all look the same. Since the introduction of InfoTag® High Temperature tag, InfoSight has expanded our capabilities to identify products in a wide variety of harsh environments.
Fabricators & Galvanizers - Tracking pieces from their initial form through to the end use can be difficult as labels are sometimes removed or destroyed during galvanizing, painting, or powder coating. InfoSight’s metal tags are specifically designed to be applied once and have the tag and barcode survive all processing – so the right piece gets to the right place at the right time.
Forging – InfoSight’s tags for forging survive the extreme heat of anneal ovens, in multiple heat cycles, as well as quenching and chemical treatments that would destroy normal tags.
Concrete & Construction - Accurately tracking steel, concrete, and other parts through the construction process is a significant factor in managing both time and money. InfoSight’s durable barcoded tags that are attached to a piece early on remain intact and readable as they are processed, moved, stored, and delivered to a job sit.
Extreme Applications – There are many other applications where normal tags and labels are not sufficient for the job. Extremely hot – over 2000oF (1100oC) or extremely cold temperatures can degrade many materials and render barcodes unreadable, as can exposure to many chemicals. InfoSight develops tags that can handle all of these environments.
