High Temp Equipment ID Tags


Signs and tags that can really take the heat. This laser marked “Manufactured by” plate was subjected to five minutes of ~3600°F. While the steel is discolored the lettering is still intact and clear.

Gold Medal Productions has been providing laser-marked identification tags and plates for use in harsh industrial environments for 20 years. Signs and tags that can withstand the high temperatures of furnaces, boilers, and heat exchangers are a key component in equipment identification, safety signage, and pressure vessel tags.

Even after being subjected to the direct heat of a propane torch, the lettering and lines on this laser marked metal stamp plate blank remain clear. High temp ID tags and signs need to be able to really take the heat!

For example, the steel ID plates pictured above were made for Bristol Boiler & Welding of Atlanta GA. They will finish the “Manufactured by” plate blanks with their date stamp. To test the marking durability, the laser-marked stainless steel tags were heated with a propane torch. While the high temperature was enough to warp and discolor the steel plate, the lettering did not come off. So the test shows that laser-marked industrial identification plates are reliable.

Laser marking metal results in permanent high contrast, high-resolution lettering, and lines. The applications are as limitless as the many environments that commercial and industrial signs and tags might be needed.

ASME Certified Repair Stamp Plates

R Stamp Plates – Quick Delivery.

The call came in at about 8:30 AM. An AMSE certified R repair job could not be closed out because the company could not access their stock of R stamp plates. The person in charge of them was out of the country and could not be reached. The R plates were somewhere in one of their 22 site construction trailers and no one had been able to locate them. Rather than waste more time searching for them, they called me.

The question was simple. “Dominic, could you make us a dozen new R stamp plates today?”

The answer was equally as simple. “Yes.”

While not all orders need to be completed in a rush, Gold Medal Productions can make repair plates quickly. With in house graphics and layout, a rapid proofing process, and stock on hand, we can deliver your R plates in a hurry if needed.

This was a new customer for Gold Medal Productions so we needed to complete the proofing process as well as produce the new stainless steel plates in time to have them packaged and shipped by that afternoon. Within two hours the layout was done and we had proof approval. By 1:30 PM the new R stamp plates were on their way to the customer via next day air.

ASME-certified R stamp plates may not be the sexiest part of a repair, re-certification, or alteration project but they are critical to closing out a job. At Gold Medal Productions we keep a stock of 304 .048 stainless steel blanks on hand at all times to offer quick delivery of your custom R stamp plate order.

If you are an ASME certified company with a need for new R stamp plates call Dominic for a quote.
