Type plates, rating plates

Type plates and rating plates identify, classify and describe your products.

The purpose of the type plate – also called the rating plate – is to identify an item, often according to statutory provisions or other standards.

For example, the European machinery directive 2006/42/EC, which regulates the marketing of machines in the EU and contains the essential safety and health requirements, also specifies how a machine is to be marked. The following information must be visible, clearly legible and permanently attached to every machine:

  1. Company name and full address of the manufacturer, including its authorized representatives, if applicable
  2. Name of the machine
  3. CE mark
  4. Model range or type name
  5. Serial number, if applicable
  6. Year of manufacture, i.e. the year in which the manufacturing process was completed

Depending on the area of use, there is a wide range of requirements on the resistance of type plates to environmental conditions. Don't hesitate to ask us, we have the right solution.
