Tool Tracking

Locate your tools and equipment more easily, while keeping a running inventory

Having a tagging and tracking solution for your tools can help reduce loss and theft on site, keep a general inventory for re-orders and help you find what you need, when you need it. On top of that, making sure you’re successfully capturing data in extreme environments means needing a robust, reliable solution. Metalcraft is known for our products’ durability in the harshest of conditions—from high temperatures to abrasive/heavy impact situations, we have tool tracking solutions to stand up to whatever you (literally) throw at it. Now that’s ID Made Better®

Metal Barcode Tags are ideal for customers who require permanent nameplates to stand up in harsh environments.

Metal Barcode Nameplates combine reliability with the durability you have come to expect with any Metalcraft product. And now we’ve made them even easier to apply with a convenient break-away tab to assist with liner removal.

Metalized Polyester Labels are polyester asset labels that have the appearance of expensive metal without the accompanying price tag. These silver polyester labels are digitally printed which allows for crisp, clean company logos as well as consistent, reliable barcode scans.

Metalcraft’s Foil 2D Dot is an ideal identification solution for small parts tracking - specializing in extreme conditions where abrasion and high temperatures may be an issue.

Durable .002" polyester Premium Polyester Labels adhere to uneven and curved metal and plastic assets. The .002” pressure-sensitive adhesive gives a strong bond. The subsurface, digital printing ensures barcode readability and crisp graphics.

The QuickTab Tag Dispenser is a revolutionary, patent-pending product from Metalcraft designed to make nameplate application more efficient than any other product on the market.

Foil Barcode Labels are ideal for customers who require a flexible label that will conform to most surfaces, yet will withstand chemicals, abrasion, solvents, and high temperatures.

Barcode Cable Labels simplify the task of marking cables, hoses, tubing, etc., by providing subsurface printing on one end with the clear part of the label wrapping around the pre-imaged information to provide additional protection.

Made from a flexible polycarbonate material with a textured, non-reflective finish, Premium Stylemark Labels look great and work even better.

This top-of-the-line polyester label features our thickest polyester combined with a .0035" thick adhesive.

ID Advantage labels are ideal for high volume applications in a mild-to-moderate environment. The optional .001" thick clear polyester over laminate provides additional protection to the bar code and/or copy.

“Lost time is never found again.”

This quote attributed to Ben Franklin, who, along with  many impressive accomplishments, was noted for his wisdom.  What he said is as true then as it is today;  there are only so many hours in the day and every second that is wasted is gone forever.

Most have some sort of coating to protect the text from bleeding off and some sort of adhesive to keep them stuck, for the moment, to whatever they are identifying. But, honestly, many ultimately have problems with readability, adhesion, and deterioration of other sorts.
