The Challenge

International Paper is a global manufacturer of paper and packaging products. They were in need of a permanent solution for equipment identification throughout their manufacturing plant.


The Solution

CIM's MDT500 HE Portable, Automatic Metal Plate Embossing Machine International Paper used the MDT500 HE to emboss color coded tags for easy, long-lasting identification of critical instrumentation throughout the plant.


The Results

Metal tags are embossed with item tag number and equipment settings, and affixed with stainless steel tie wire to instrumentation such as:

  • Transmitters
  • Pressure switches
  • Control valves
  • Meters

Embossed colored anodized aluminum tags for identification of critical plan instrumentation.

"I have used CIM embossers in the past at other manufacturing plants and have been very happy with the outcome. When the time came to implement an identification solution at this plant, the choice to go with another CIM solution was an easy one."

The automatic MDT 500 HE has been designed as the ideal no hassle solution for low to medium tag volumes. The machine is able to emboss or deboss up to 100 tags per hour. The unit weighs 24 kg, making it a compact, rugged, all inclusive, designed and built by CIM, the number one US Army supplier with quality steel materials to ensure years of trouble free service.

The MDT 500 HE comes with an integrated Linux based CPU that allows the machine to work completely stand alone.
