The cable identification label is an identification solution that allows, for example, an employee to identify cabling in their work area, or a technician to quickly identify the use of each cable. These labels can also be used as a security label, allowing the user to be alerted to a particular characteristic or potential danger: it is indeed possible to add identification information (earth symbol, danger summary, etc.) or traceability information (bar code) to a cable or pipe.
Good marking is therefore essential to ensure that your various electrical cables are highly visible and thus improve the efficiency and safety of your installations during daily use as well as during any technical maintenance. Gravic, specialist in industrial identification solutions, is at your disposal to produce, print and cut to size various flexible materials to identify your cables.
We offer several primary cable identification solutions:
When heated, the label shapes itself to the material it is placed on.
This is generally placed as a “curtain” around the cable, so that it adheres to itself.
TYPES OF APPLICATION
- Identification of electrical cabling
- Identification of electronic/computer cabling
- Identification of pipelines (gas, oxygen, etc.)
TYPES OF MATERIALS
- PVC / Vinyl
- Permanent, removable adhesive
- Heat-shrinkable vinyl
Cable identification label: some examples of possible uses
The fields of application for cable labels are diverse as they can be used for identifying electronic electrical wiring as well as other types of pipes and ducts. Depending on the product to be marked, there are different fixing systems to ensure durable identification without risking damage to the cable or conduit. This is because the equipment must be preserved as much as possible so as not to impair its function or pose a safety risk. Cable identification labels are therefore ideal, easy to apply identification solutions that are safe for your equipment.
Gravic offers two main types of labels for cable identification: the heat-shrink label is ideal for quality and durable marking, as the label adapts to the dimensions of the cable concerned under the effect of heat. The self-adhesive cable label is very useful for marking your electrical cables, an economical and easy-to-deploy solution that can also be removed as required. The highly durable self-adhesive cable label is usually applied “flagged” around the cable, being glued to itself.
