Machine plates, Serial plates, UL and CE marking

Type plates come in many shapes and sizes. For each machine, equipment manufacturer and/or supplier it is a mustto make the specific technical data visible. For a professional appearance, service purposes and mandatory certification.

With our professional printing solutions, third-party production is no longer necessary. With a Rebo machine plate printer you can easily and professionally print durable type plates, equipment labels and other object identification.

The printers come standard with:

  • Microsoft® certified label software (or use your own application)
  • Installation with instruction
  • 3 years full warranty

Important applications can be:

CE-marking on machines

If marketed or put into service after 1 January 1995 the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC must be fully complied with for all new independently operating machinery, for trade and/or own use. This requirement also applies to second-hand machinery imported from outside the European Economic Area* (EEA), to modified machinery with hazards and risks that differ from the original design and to machinery with a different intended use.

Practical situation:
You are importing machines from Asia, but after your modification the original type plates no longer contain the correct technical data and safety symbols required by the CE directives in the EU.

Consequence:
Your machines won’t be able to leave until this is sorted out!

Solution:
With a Rebo nameplate printer you can easily design and print your personalized nameplate with CE marking on high quality tape materials. Our labelling software also has all NEN-7010 safety symbols that can be made with the same printer in the correct language in combination with your specific instruction. Simply change the materials and start printing!

Recommended material: PT700 Matt Alu & Semi Gloss Alu Polyester with high adhesion.

CE-marking for steel constructions (EN-1090-1)

Practical example:
From 1 July 2014, all components of a load-bearing steel structure must bear CE marking in accordance with the NEN-EN 1090 directives.

Consequence:
Indeed, a construction product may no longer be placed on the market without the CE marking if a harmonised European standard for the product has been published. This measure imposes high requirements on the traceability of construction elements.

Solution:
This tracebility requirement requires a high quality label that is scratch resistant, very difficult to remove, and should be UV resistant for years. You can easily meet these requirements by providing your structural parts with our hightack polyester tapes (in white or aluminum colored version) printed with our SR10 Resin ink ribbon.

Recommended material: PT700 Hightack Gloss Polyester white or aluminium with extreme adhesion.

UL-marking on export items

Practical situation:
You want to export industrial control cabinets to the U.S. but your CE mark does not apply here. They must comply with the UL 508A directive. In addition to the fact that your control cabinet must comply with this, it is also required that the label must be UL-certified.

Consequence:
Your machines won’t be able to leave until this is sorted out!

Solution:
Design your personalised nameplates and print them on our UL-certified white and aluminium polyester tapes.

Recommended material: UL-listed PT700 white or Aluminium coloured polyester.

Rating plates for Refrigeration and Cooling Installations

Practical example:
A part of the PED mandatory certification is that on all supplied refrigeration and cooling systems a license plate is mandatorily affixed on which the technical specifications and filling data are stated and, if necessary, an instruction card is placed.

Consequence:
If you do not provide the installation with a license plate, it is not PED certified and you are trespassing.

Solution:
With a Rebo label printer you can print all installation data and your logo on the scratch-resistant and UV-resistant identification plate in seconds. You also have the possibility to add an instruction card to your license plate or print it out separately.

Recommended material: Sustainable white or Semi-gloss aluminium polyester.

Customise your machine plate with a 1D barcode or 2D QR-code.

Practical situation:
Service technicians and engineers would like to have a quick insight into the maintenance data of the installation in case of malfunctions and maintenance.

Consequence:
Manually searching and typing data takes time and can lead to errors.

Solution:
You could also print a unique QR barcode on the nameplate so that the engineer can scan it with a laptop or tablet and make a direct online connection with the maintenance software. These barcodes can, of course, also be printed as separate asset labels so that, for example, during maintenance stops, all machine and installation parts can be viewed quickly. The surface on which you apply the labels can be very diverse and these critical labels must remain in place under difficult conditions. We therefore recommend using our Hightack tapes with extreme adhesive strength.

Recommended material: HT700 Hightack Vinyl or PT700 Hightack Glossy Polyester with extreme adhesion.

Prevent warranty fraud

Practical example:
You company supplies valuable hardware with a certain warranty period. Within this period of time (e.g. due to a malfunction) users will make changes or repairs themselves that will damage the equipment or machine. However, it is difficult for the manufacturer to prove that the customer has caused this himself.

Consequence:
You obviously agree with the customer – because the customer is king – but there is a wrongful claim on the warranty.

Solution:
For fraud-sensitive equipment and products, we advise you to print on our VOID tape, which captures all important data in a fraud-proof label.
With this label you seal the access to the equipment. If a user wants to remove the label, this will leave the text VOID and the label will not be usable again. It is then clearly visible that the equipment has been tampered with and you can prove that the warranty claim is not valid.

Recommended material: PV500 Void Polyester

Resolables – the alternative to engraved resopal plates

Practical situation:
You have accepted a project and the specifications talk about resopal images. Ordering these pictures is often time consuming and expensive.

Consequence:
You are dependent on the long delivery times of your supplier and the high production costs for smaller quantities.

Solution:
Our resolables are the perfect alternative and in most cases are seen as an equivalent product.
This material consists of a 2mm high quality foam tape coated with a white or silver polyester film. It is therefore a thickened “label” but looks and feels like an engraved solid plate. Big advantage is that you can design and print it resolutely easy yourself, you don’t have to wait anymore and you have less costs.
The quality of the material and the print is very high because you print the Resolabel with our ultra-strong SR10 Resin ribbon and you are assured of a scratch-resistant print that is suitable for years of industrial indoor and outdoor use.

Recommended material: RL100 Resolabels

Heavy Duty Identification for the most extreme situation

Practical situation:
You develop machines that are exposed to harsh conditions such as
mechanical load, cleaning under high pressure and/or with chemicals, weather influences or extremely high/cold temperatures.

Consequence:
You are looking for a label (material) that is extra durable / permanently connected to your equipment and also meets the set guidelines / requirements.

Solution:
Our PT700 aluminium polyester line is standard provided with a non-aging permanent adhesive layer. This material is standard scratch resistant, light chemical resistant and UV and weather resistant. In addition, we can supply this material with a special Hightack adhesive layer so that your label will adhere even on a very difficult surface.

For most extreme situations, we have developed a laminate that you can easily apply as an extra protective layer on the label, making it even more resistant to UV and chemicals.

Recommended material: PT700 Polyester

Serial plates in your custom corporate style?

If you would also like to use your corporate identity colours for the type plates (e.g. full colour logo), we also offer the possibility to pre-print your type plates, after which you can use the Rebo printer to print the variable data.
