Good Morning,

I'm looking for a solution to barcode our molds for inventory management.  I have tried several materials, but non can hold up to mold cleaners.  We have different naming standards for each customer owned mold so i am not able to just order metal tags starting for example with 1-100.  My goal would be to have a material that i can print or make myself.

Justin - we have been looking for the same thing. Do you have a laser etching machine? We've found that if we use an anodized aluminum tag that we can get a good enough resolution for the scanner to read the bar code. However, we are worried it won't be very durable.
