Benchtop Fiber Laser - Creating Compliant UID Labels & Tags

One of the key points in the UID mandate is the UII must last the lifetime of the item. This is true regardless of whether you are complying with a pre-printed UID label or are creating the UID labels onsite. Laser engraved UID nameplates are one way users can create their own UID nameplates onsite when quicker turnaround times are needed, but yet you don't want to sacrifice too much durability over pre-printed tags.

Durable Labels: What You Really, Really Want

You’re looking for durable labels? Honestly, now, most of the asset labels used these days for inventory and tracking have a whole lot more durability than they’ve had in the past. 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. So what you’re looking for is a really, really good label that will stand the test of time.
