Automatic Tag Embossing System
- Automatically emboss text and graphics on metal tags
- Data can be sent from a host computer, uploaded in a batch file, or entered manually
- Jam-free embosser is designed for continuous operation with little or no operator intervention
The Automatic Embossing System (AES) is designed for medium- to high-volume tagging needs. A coil of pre-fabricated tags is loaded into the machine and then it's ready to accept data and start embossing. Tags can be made one at a time, in small batches, or in large batches where finished tags are collected on a optional recoiler. Once embossed, the tags are easily snapped apart for use.
The AES uses dot peen technology to emboss metal tags using a carbide stylus. Data can be embossed in any direction and any character size. Information to be marked can be input manually by an operator, received automatically from a host system, or retrieved from a batch input file on a server. The AES software can also be customized to receive data from other sources such as bar code scanners or scales.
Product Tracking in Harsh Processes
Embossed metal tags are ideal for processes like shot blasting, pickling, annealing, cleaning washes, hot dip galvanizing, and painting, where any other mark would be rendered unreadable. Your product identification remains intact even after years of exposure to outdoor conditions.

The AES utilizes coils of tag material available in a variety of materials and sizes. Typical sizes are 7/8", 2", and 3" wide, made in any length you wish. Tags can be supplied with holes or slots for easy attachment to various products, or they can be welded onto products for permanent identification. Read more about our embossed metal tags.
Manual Tag Feed AES
A more economical system for lower volume tag needs, the manual-feed AES offers the flexibility of a programmable embosser with the simplicity of a manual feed system. Tags are moved and clamped manually under the marking head during marking.
