Label Blanks for On-Site UID Laser Marking

Making UID labels on-site can be favorable to buying labels. When lead times are short or you need access to real–time production of UID labels, making UID labels on-site can be more beneficial than buying labels. Because IUID requires permanent, durable UID labels, laser marking on metal is the solution of choice.

Camcode offers a wide selection of laser-markable metal blanks to fulfill your needs. We manufacture both stock and custom sizes, including custom shapes, for any application. Our products include three kinds of aluminum and stainless steel, all of which are precisely fabricated in our facility, laminated with industrial strength adhesives and conveniently packaged for immediate use. Our laser blanks products support all types and powers of lasers from a 15 watt CO2 to ND YAG and Fiber lasers.

Camcode is the most experienced manufacturer of metal laser UID label blanks. All of our label materials are manufactured in our facility for ultimate control over material quality and consistency. Other materials in the market come from various sources with significant variability and changes in alloy or color consistency. Camcode offers branded products produced under controlled standards.

With Camcode’s wide variety of durable UID label blanks options and our defense industry experience, we can help you create accurate UID labels on-site, whenever and wherever you need them. If you need assistance establishing your own laser system, Camcode can help with that too. We offer an On-Demand UID Laser System for on-site production of UID labels. The system provides you with everyting you need to ensure your UID labels and nameplates are simple to create and meet MIL-STD-130 or STANAG 2290 requirements. The system includes laser equipment, label design software, UID verification equipment, and laser-markable materials.

Camcode provides the product variety to make your on-site label blanks project successful. For instance, our foil UID labels fit into tight spaces and wrap around curved surfaces. Our rigid UID labels take a pounding and can be fabricated into almost any shape.

In addition to 100 label sizes and a dozen adhesives to choose from, Camcode provides exclusive tools to keep your production at maximum efficiency. Our foil UID labels are delivered in precisely die cut sheets that accurately locate the label blank on your laser bed every time. For rigid parts we have perfected a laser jig which is loaded with blanks then placed onto the laser bed to maintain seamless registration and streamline production. Each jig is supplied with a set up proof that contains the correct coordinates, allowing you to program your laser with exact specifications. These coordinates can be saved, making it simple and accurate each time you load your sheets. Accuracy, speed and consistency are our goals.

Here's how it works:

  1. Purchase one of our standard size laser-markable labels from our price list (or purchase a custom size to meet your needs). Labels come in .005" foil die cut sheets ready for the laser or in boxes of precut thicker materials for use with our precision laser jigs.

  3. Position the label blanks on the bed of the laser and mark.
