When you’re renting high value assets to customers, companies need the best item identification and tracking system available. You need to reliably know real-time visibility of all your assets, all the time, so you spend less time and money handling and tracking down an asset. Ultimately, inventory management that is automated vs. manual can be a game changer for your company.
Metalcraft’s high-performance tags are built to stay on the equipment and last the lifetime of the asset—surviving through any harsh conditions and rough handling. Our partnership creates a solution that gives you:
Durability and visibility for your assets
Automated asset tracking with real-time, 100% accurate data by location
Automated “in and out” processes
Enhanced security, discouraging theft/misplacement
Records of maintenance
A real-time account of safe handling
When you’re renting out expensive equipment like Audio Visual items, you need a partner that can provide a wide range of asset tracking solutions. Metalcraft has worked with many equipment rental companies to create solutions that are as unique to their world as the many types of equipment they rent out. Now that’s ID Made Better®.
Metal Barcode Tags are ideal for customers who require permanent nameplates to stand up in harsh environments.
Metal Bar Code 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.
The 002” polypropylene Valumark label conforms to uneven and curved surfaces and adheres tightly to plastics that resist labels under moderate use. Subsurface digital printing eliminates lamination and keeps graphics bright when used, primarily, for indoor asset tracking.
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.
Do you need to track uniforms, hospital aprons, rental linens or other materials? Metalcraft's Heat Seal Labels are made of a woven polyester and heat-activated adhesive that bonds well to cottons, polyesters and much more. They even withstand washing and drying cycles!
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.
Foil Bar Code 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.
