Industrial Nameplates SA manufactures custom labels, identification tags, metallic and non-metallic nameplates that are used in various industries for a range of applications, both in normal and harsh environments.


Aluminum nameplates are a cost effective option when looking for metal nameplates.They can be printed,anodised or etched and typically are found in controlled environments or are attached in areas that limit the nameplate’s exposure to weather and harsh chemicals. We stock a variety of thicknesses of raw aluminum and we do all anodising in-house. We are capable of full color nameplates and can add a variety of holes and adhesives for mounting. We can do CNC or laser cutting on the required plates to accommodate any special engineering, which is done in-house.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel nameplates are extremely durable and are typically found in harsh environments and in industries such as oil and gas, flow control, and mining. We chemically etch and stain the Stainless steel to provide you with a durable plate that will keep up with the harshest of environments.Full colour plates also available. We can punch holes and slots to accommodate fixing with screws and pop-rivets. A variety of peel and stick adhesives are also available with a variety of thicknesses, finishes and alloys.

Signs and Stickers

Industrial Nameplates also manufacture a variety of signs including Chromadek, Perspex, PVC, Polycarbonate/Laxen and ABS. We do digital vinyl decals as well as cut out vinyl letters.  We also do reverse printing ( Full colour available) on clear PVC and Polycarb/Laxen so the image is protected by the material and cannot be damaged or defaced.

Chrome Dome

Chrome Dome is a resin coated label with a chrome/mirror finish and a very aggressive acrylic adhesive, typically used as visual branding.

Composite Plastic

We laser engrave Rowmark and Trafolite labels used typically in the electrical sector. Wide variety of colours available.



We at Industrial Nameplates are capable of manufacturing large quantities of Anodised Aluminium barcodes. We specialise in full colour and single colour barcodes. Benefits of sub-surface printing is that the image will not rub off! Special adhesives can be applied as well as holes for mounting to your product.

What is a barcode and how can it help me?

A barcode is an optical machine-readable representation of data. Originally, barcodes represented data in the widths (lines) and the spacing of parallel lines, and may be referred to as linear or 1D (1dimensional) barcodes or symbologies.

The mapping between messages and barcodes is called a symbology. The specification of a symbology includes the encoding of the single digits/characters of the message as well as the start and stop markers into bars and space, the size of the quiet zone required to be before and after the barcode as well as the computation of a checksum.

There is a large variety of 2D symbologies. The most common are matrix codes, which feature square or dot-shaped modules arranged on a grid pattern. 2-D symbologies also come in a variety of other visual formats.
Although 2D systems use symbols other than bars, they are generally referred to as barcodes as well. Barcodes can be read by optical scanners or scanned from an image by special software.

Some applications include:

  • Mass Merchandising Retail Chain Membership Cards.
  • Asset management and tracking.
  • Tracking of an item of movement (Airline luggage / mail / parcels)
  • Some 2D Barcodes embed a hyperlink to a web page. A capable cellphone might be used to read the barcode and browse the linked wesite.
