Case study

Why choose metal data plates in the military?

Data plates are meant for identification of parts and equipment in the military. They must comply with various military grade specifications regarding the size of the plate, font, and format of the text on it. Military specifics require the data plates to be lastingly durable and withstand the elements of nearly any environment. Military data plates made from Metalphoto® are considered to be of the highest quality and durability.

We are a small business based in the USA and have been working with Silmor for over 15 years. We have been very happy with their customer service and products, which include serialized metal labels for product identification as well as membrane switch panels for our electronics-based products. Pricing is very reasonable and communication (in English) has been excellent.
