Installation and maintenance of complex electrical circuits can be made easier and more efficient using a unique cable marking system manufactured by Fleximark of Nyköping, Sweden. The Fleximark Stain-less system has been developed for cable and component marking in difficult environments, with the user being able to produce stainless steel markers instantly on site.

The system comprises a comprehensive range of letters and numbers embossed onto break-off strips. The strip with the chosen character is simply inserted into the end of a text holder, the first one being easily snapped off. In this way, a label containing several numbers and characters can be quickly assembled on site. The text holder containing the characters is then fixed securely to the cable using the special fastening strips provided. Being made entirely from stainless steel the label is fire resistant and can ensure that cable runs in outdoor or corrosive environments remain quick and easy to identify.

For situations where the creation of labels on site proves impractical, Fleximark also offers a range of products under its FCC (Fleximark Customised Concept) brand name. This has been created to provide a rapid service for the factory-based production of customized labels. Advanced metal embossing equipment is used to manufacture customized one-piece stainless steel labels. The process can be speeded up further if the customer supplies Fleximark with his text requirements as an Excel file that can be downloaded directly into the computer controlled embossing machinery. Up to two lines of text may be embossed on a label 13 mm wide. Labels can be supplied that are suitable for fastening to cables or they may be screwed or riveted directly onto components where they will provide a permanent means of identification.

UV-protected labels

For cables in less demanding environments that need to be labelled Fleximark also manufactures a range of plastic FCC cable marker tags. The text-carrying labels are printed with bubble-jet ink onto PVC which are then inserted into UV-protecting polythene holders that are supplied already fitted with cable ties.
