Why are nameplates practical?


Nameplates need to be designed not only to be durable, but also to have durability. Firstly, although artistically designed signs have an ornamental value, signs are not primarily intended for viewing, but for practical use. In addition, the essential feature of a nameplate is that it is durable and does not corrode easily.


Why are aluminium nameplates so popular?


In recent years, stainless steel has been widely used in the signage and nameplate industry because it has many advantages. Aluminium has the most decorative expression, and many surface decoration processes can be applied and played on aluminium, therefore, aluminium alloy is one of the most commonly used in a wide range of sign making materials. In addition, aluminium has excellent ductility, easy to shear and also easy to press and form, which can meet the needs of the special process of signage.


The production process of aluminium nameplates



The use of machining and forming followed by painting makes the installation size uniform and standardised and can be mass produced. The processing of painted instrument panels has strict dimensional requirements and requires experienced pliers and millers, and where available CNC drilling machines can be used to increase production efficiency.


Oil removal

Marking in order to make the surface of the aluminum plate has a certain affinity for the printing coating, to remove the oil on the surface of the plate, the general encapsulation of oil can be used first with fine soft sawdust wipe, then use organic solvents to remove oil; machining in the oil can be used organic solvents or alkaline solution chemical oil removal



The purpose of this step is to make the surface of the nameplate smoother. If there are scratches on the surface of the plate, a layer of putty should be scraped to smooth it out, and the choice of mechanical, chemical or electrochemical polishing should be made according to the customer's requirements.



Due to the poor bonding between aluminium alloy materials and topcoats and printing inks, a layer of primer is required before spraying the aluminium alloy panels with topcoat. Then, according to the customer's requirements, the corresponding colour of amino or acrylic lacquer is sprayed. For light coloured paints, especially white paints, the drying temperature and drying time should be strictly controlled, otherwise the white paint will be yellowed.


Silkscreen printing

The general requirements for printed sign panels are accurate and clear graphic position, neat word line edges and firm inking.
