Weidmüller has introduced Metallicard, a marking system for electrical equipment and cables that enables printing on markers made from aluminium or stainless steel.

Metal markers are said to be better able to withstand high temperatures, climate swings, ultraviolet (UV) radiation and other environmental chemical/physical loads than polyamide markers.

The Metallicards are printed on the Printjet Pro inkjet printer and can include colour graphics, characters and logos to suit customer requirements.

There are several options for securing the metal markers, including riveting, gluing and using stainless steel cable ties.

Key information

  • The Metallicard markers are resistant to high temperatures, extreme changes to the climate, UV radiation and other external influences.
  • The rectangular markers are available in sizes from 27 x 18mm through to 85 x 54mm.
  • Round markers with a diameter of 30mm are also available, as well as a version for stainless steel cable ties.
  • Metallicards are offered in anodised aluminium and stainless steel (1.4301); stainless steel is said to be suitable for use in the harsh environments found in the process and chemical industries.
  • There is no need for an oven or similar equipment; only one printer, one software package and one type of ink are required.
  • The system can be customised — users can create layouts and import data from other systems.
  • Inlays to print the different markers, as well as a universal inlay, are available from Weidmüller; they are designed to last for more than 2,000 printing processes.
