Medical: Hospitals and Healthcare

Tracking assets can be life-saving—trust in Metalcraft solutions

As one of the most heavily regulated industries, healthcare requires a strict level of asset management to maintain regulatory compliance and support patient outcomes. Many hospital assets such as wheelchairs, diagnostic equipment and pumps need to be located quickly for vital patient care. Not to mention that they are often loaned from one facility to another. Metalcraft’s asset tracking technology allows the medical industry to easily gather real-time data for critical medical needs. 

The benefits of hospital staff keeping tabs on where critical equipment is located at all times include: 

  • Tracking maintenance of life-sustaining machines 

  • Tracking asset location in real-time 

  • Recording calibration information easier 

  • Reducing unnecessary equipment purchases 

  • Providing a real-time account of safe handling 

  • Preventing theft and counterfeit of supplies 

Diagnostic and scientific medical equipment are used in harsh conditions and pushed to their limits while having equally challenging regulations. And, medical staff need the certainty of having key equipment at their fingertips. RFID and barcode technologies provide the authentication you need for all your safety concerns—from accurate tracking and authentication of medication to improving accuracy of where equipment is located in real-time. Partnering with the deep expertise from Metalcraft will create products that assure patient safety. Now that’s ID Made Better®. 

Dirt, grease, grime, even dried paint easily clean off this revolutionary nameplate due to its durable Teflon® coating. Once clean, you get a fast, accurate bar code reading to track assets, fugitive emissions or work-in-process.

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.

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.

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.

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.
