Energy & Utilities
Utilities have proven that data collection using bar code labels is faster, less expensive and more accurate than manual data collection. From pole tags used to track inspection and treatment, to equipment tags used in power generation plant computerised maintenance management systems rely on highly durable anodised aluminium labels.
The image is sealed below the surface of the label creating an impenetrable barrier to sunlight, water, salt, dirt, chemicals, solvents and temperatures up to 340° C.
Teflon® treatments can be added for applications that require resistance to paint or greasy environments.
You will never need to re-label as our labels have a 30 year life outdoors.
The utility industry encompasses any organization that generates, produces, distributes or delivers electricity, gas, oil, water (including waste water disposal) and/or basic services to support all or part of these commodities. Such entities face a unique challenge when it comes to ensuring that their asset tags last over the useful life of the assets they identify. Items such as meters, outdoor switchgear and poles last for decades and face extreme weather conditions.
Our Metalphoto® bar code labels have been field-proven in the utility industry for over 20 years to withstand abrasion, intense temperatures, weather conditions and exposure to UV, chemicals and solvents. No other bar code company understands the integration of bar code asset identification into utility asset management processes better than ABCorp. We have provided bar code label solutions for applications such as meter badges, CMMS systems and pole maintenance, and joint use systems. Our customers include the largest utility companies in the U.S. and extend to Europe and Australia.
