Round Metal Tags (InfoDot)

Features

  • Small size makes label unobtrusive
  • Photo anodized aluminum resists abrasion, solvents, sun, salt air, and high temperatures
  • DataMatrix symbology utilizes only one-tenth the space of traditional bar codes
  • High redundancy in DataMatrix symbology means bar code will still read if as much as 60% of the image is destroyed

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. The 2D DataMatrix ECC200 bar code symbology allows you to identify and track property as well as record calibration and maintenance information in one-tenth the space of traditional bar codes.

Made of a resilient photo anodized aluminum, the Foil 2D Dot Bar Code Label resists abrasion, solvents, sun, salt air, and high temperatures while the bar code and human-readable is sealed within the anodic layer of the aluminum to protect readability.

An image intensification process ensures the bar code will read every time even when exposed to damaging UV rays and high temperatures. Plus, because of the high redundancy within the DataMatrix bar code symbology, the bar code is still readable if as much as 60% of the image is destroyed.

Specifications Data
Material .003" thick matte anodized aluminum
Serialization All alphanumeric DataMatrix codes are photo imaged with a human-readable equivalent. Guaranteed no skips in sequence. Standard symbology is 2D DataMatrix ECC200, which includes the full set of ASCII characters. DataMatrix is a highly redundant bar code and is still readable if up to 60% of the bar code is destroyed.
Label Copy The label copy may include bar code and human-readable equivalent.
Colors Choose black copy with silver background or silver copy with black background.
Standard Adhesive Pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive
Sizes .375" x .375"
Packaging Shipped 100 per sheet. Cartons are clearly marked to indicate serial numbers of contents. Pressure-sensitive adhesive orders are shipped with application tool and instructions.
