Things You Must Know About UID Nameplates and UID Labels

Brief info about UID Label

The Item Unique Identification (UID) label is mandatory for all individuals who need to be UID compliant. The UID label is used for all the Department of Defense’s (DoD) identification requirements and serialization tracking programs (SNTs). The UID Labels, UID tags and UID nameplates you use should last long under difficult conditions and should not wear away. Selecting the right UID label is extremely important for achieving UID compliance.

However, the UID labels or plates must meet MIL STD 130 code standards. There is however, a wide variety of materials to choose from. UID labelscan be made from stainless steel, polyester, aluminum or laser marked adhesive backed tape. can help you make a decision.

All companies requiring UID labels, UID nameplates, and Mil-Std 130M UID compliance can be described in three broad categories which are stated as follows:

Full Resource Medium-to-Large Size Companies

These companies generally have all the available resources needed to fully implement Mil-Std 130M compliant labels and tags, UID verification and Wide Area Work Flow (WAWF) and UID registering processes. However, they still look for a UID partner that can help them choose appropriate UID equipment or process for their operation. These companies generally purchase stock UID labels and other parts from ID-integration.

Selective Resource Medium-to-Large Size Companies

Although these companies have adequate resources to implement the necessary equipment and processes for complete Mil-Std 130 UID compliance, they choose to partner with a vendor that can offer UID labels and UID nameplates including on-demand and verification reports in a timely fashion.

Limited Resource Small-to-Medium Size Companies

These companies have a Mil-Std 130 requirement but cannot afford to purchase thermal transfer printers, CO2 laser etching equipment or UID label verification equipment and qualified staff to cater to the UID orders. Therefore, they generally seek a reliable UID partner which can offer UID compliance labels, UID nameplates, verification reports and also a process to submit UID information to the WAWF and UID Registry. These companies generally require a full service solution from ID-integration. ID-integration takes care of and ensures complete UID compliance with all DoD standards.
