Metalphoto® Anodized Aluminum Tags

Recommended use: Ideal for outdoor machinery and industrial equipment in need of barcode and/or serial number ID plates. A versatile ID tag solution when welding and color are not required. Meets DOT requirements for on-road vehicles.

PEC Metalphoto tags are affordable to produce and deliver incredible durability.  

Why is Metalphoto anodized aluminum so durable? Phototransfer technology permanently embeds dye into the pores of the anodized aluminum. Barcodes, text, and serial numbers are sealed beneath the surface. High-resolution reproduction ensures scannable and long-lasting QR codes, barcodes, and VIN/serial numbers.

Tool-Engraved Steel Tags

Recommended use: Best option for ID tags, serial tags, and VIN tags that will be welded onto industrial parts or equipment, especially items that will be galvanized or painted.

For ID plates that need to be attached to thick metal, PEC offers tool-engraved steel tags. These tags are often attached to individual pieces of large equipment that are shipped in sections and assembled on-site, such as cell phone towers.

These equipment assembly tags are most affordable if the same information is ordered on many tags. They can then be stamped on-site with unique information. Quantity discounts are available on bulk orders.

Recommended thickness: .125″
