Tag making is fast and easy with the EmbossMax 3000 metal tag embosser. Using dot peen marking technology, the system’s marking pin can emboss characters in any size or direction on pre-fabricated metal tags.
Easy Data Entry
Setting up new tag formats is fast and easy with the system’s AC500 touchscreen controller. Create fields for text, date or serial number fields that update automatically, logos and graphics, and 2D codes. The preview screen lets you see the layout of the fields and easily move and resize them.
Once the tag format is set up, the information to be marked can be entered a variety of ways. Typical data entry methods are:
- The operator types data using the controller or an attached keyboard
- Data is retrieved from a spreadsheet on a connected PC using the Pannier Simple Spreadsheet App
- Data is scanned from bar codes on job paperwork
Pre-fabricated metal tags are supplied on a coil for easy, jam-free feeding through the embosser. The tag stock is fed through a clamp that holds the tags in place during marking. When marking is complete, the clamp releases and the operator manually advances the stock to the next blank tag. After tags are marked, they are snapped apart for use.

Tagging Products in Harsh Industrial Processes
The raised characters on embossed tags remain legible through processes like shot blasting, pickling, annealing, hot dip galvanizing, painting, and powder coating where any other tag or label would be rendered unreadable. Your product identification remains intact even after years of exposure to outdoor conditions.
