BIRTH OF A NEW ERA
Backed by a winning combination of industry-leading quality, top-notch customer service, and over sixty years of continuous innovation, Texas Nameplate Company introduces a versatile, affordable Digital Nameplate® that brings mobile technology to 2D matrix code nameplates through TNC’s patented process.
The Digital Nameplate® process covered by U.S. Patent No. 8,540,285 enables TNC to chemically etch QR codes and UIDs on traditional metal nameplates.
These unique codes, combined with smartphones and other scanning devices, allow for more information to be stored digitally and, thus, transferred more quickly. By electronically transferring the information, TNC’s patented process helps preserve the integrity of the encoded data and minimizes the room for human error and interpretation.
Unlike traditional, painted metal nameplates, TNC’s 2D matrix codes are chemically etched, meaning the codes can last a lifetime, withstanding harsh environments like salt water, outdoor elements common in oil fields and extreme temperatures and sun exposure prevalent in the solar and energy industries. TNC’s patented process of chemical etching allows for these codes to be read electronically even after the color fades away.
