Why AlumaMark Asset Tags Are the Best for Asset Tracking
AlumaMark is an excellent material for producing asset tags. This aluminium material, uniquely designed for several applications in the engraving industry, produces terrific results. And one of its uses is making asset tags. AlumaMark asset tags are incomparable with asset tags made from other materials. Oh, yes. It’s a factual truth. But most people, including some engravers, do not know it. In this post, you will, therefore, get to know the benefits of making asset tags from AlumaMark aluminium.
Before we go to the benefits, let’s first know the difference between AlumaMark aluminium and other similar materials. We make asset labels from either metal or plastic, with plastic tags being the more affordable choice.
It’s easy to identify plastic from metal. But it’s confusing to an ordinary person to differentiate AlumaMark aluminium from other types of engravable aluminium. Even some engravers fail to distinguish it from others. AlumaMark is anodised aluminium that consists of two layers: the aluminium core and the anodised coating.
The anodised coating put on top is thin (approx. 6-22 microns), but hard and robust. This layer protects the aluminium core from any chemical and physical influence. It is usually white. But through embedding colour pigments onto its surface, it becomes coloured to give the final finish.
Why are AlumaMark asset tags the best?
AlumaMark asset tags are incomparable to other types of asset tags made other materials because of the following benefits to both the client and the engraver.
AlumaMark is a material prepared purposely to produce high-quality engraving results, using a CO2 laser system. AlumaMark asset tags look so lovely with a professional engraving. You get asset tags with high-resolution results and quality graphics that are commensurate with the brand of your organisation or business.
Ability to create logos
You have the benefit of having your logo or any other graphics on the AlumaMark asset tags. It’s not the case with other uncoated metal. Having a company logo on your asset tags is an excellent way of visually identifying your assets and personalising them. Additionally, it helps to promote your brand because the more people see your branded asset tags, the more your brand name remains firmly in their minds.
It is real metal
AlumaMark is real metal with a high perceived value. Besides, metal is long-lasting. When you fix Alumamark asset tags on metallic assets, they bond so well and become too hard to remove.
Ability to create barcodes or QR Codes
On AlumaMark asset tags, you can create 1D barcodes and 2D barcodes (known as QR Codes). These modern technologies make it possible to track assets by scanning the barcode labels attached to them.
Using barcode asset tags is an efficient and modern way of managing assets in organisations, companies, industries and government institutions. Additionally, QR codes are also an effective marketing strategy. For more information on this, you can read about our post on QR code marketing.
Strong and durable
AlumaMark asset tags are durable although they are lightweight. The protective coating offers excellent impact resistance, hence increased durability. However, AlumaMark is recommendable for indoor applications. If you want tags for outdoor applications, then Durablack aluminium should be your choice.
A wide selection of colours
AlumaMark comes in different colour backgrounds. It means that you have a full-colour selection that matches your assets. The colours include silver, gold, yellow, green, orange, red, bronze and brass. These colours also play an essential role in identifying your assets quickly from others.
Comes ready to engrave
The material comes prepared for marking. As an engraver, you don’t need to apply a special spray or chemical before engraving, the way it is when engraving bare metal. You place the material in your laser machine and etch it straight away to create the tags. It saves time and increases profitability as you can produce so many asset tags in a short time.
Easy to fix firmly on the assets
AlumaMark asset tags are so light and thin with 0.020 inches of thickness. When you set them on your assets, they stick hard making it difficult to fall off or remove them. It is suitable for people who consider asset tagging inappropriate for fear of easy removal.
Change your mind!
As I wind up, I would like to remind you that AlumaMark produces high-quality engraving results. You can put company logos and barcodes to customise your tags and to simplify the asset management process. Next time you want to mark your assets, think using AlumaMark asset tags in any colour of your preference.
