According to InfoSight Corporation (Chillicothe, OH), automated reading of barcode labels have become standard for identifying and tracking products in almost every industry, however, some environments are impossible for even the most robust labeling to survive. InfoSight has introduced a new tag, the TigTag, to bring barcode labeling capabilities to environments in excess of 2,000 degrees F. The TigTag is a new application of its CeramiCode line of high temperature tags. Specifically:
- TigTag is a CeramiCode high purity alumina ceramic plate mounted to a 316 Stainless Steel baseplate.
- The mounting technique is designed to permit rapid temperature cycling without stress on the ceramic plate.
- The TigTag can be attached to metals using small TIG or MIG welds. The 2” X 3” (50 mm X 76 mm). Alphanumeric characters can also be included in the laser marked message.
- The TigTag provides a large scannable barcode for traceability of pieces that experience multiple cycles of extremely high temperatures such as annealing covers, kiln cars, high temperature molds and rolls.
