TPM Video Series: Labeling Tip for better Visual Controls
In today's video I cover a cost-effective and quick-to-implement tactic that extends the life of equipment labels.
Often equipment labels become unfixed, scrapped and tattered due to the daily wear of plant life. These labels are important visual aids for operators and maintenance technicians and must be easy to read and clearly visible. Extending the life cycle of these labels becomes an important element of equipment reliability. Applying clear boxing tape over the labels will increase the adhesion surface area to protect labels from oil, lube, moisture; anything that could contaminate or destroy the labels. These are the two quick steps to improve the life cycle of your equipment labels:
- First clean the label and surrounding area
- Then apply the boxing tape over the label
