How to Evaluate and Choose the Optimal Wire Labeling Solution for Your Needs

Clear, long-lasting wire labeling is critical for identification, assembly, and repair of wire harnesses, electrical control panels, and data/telecommunications systems. Investing in a quality labeling system up front saves time and money. There are several types of wire labels to choose from including heat-shrink sleeves, self-laminating labels, flags, and rigid tags. 

In this series of four brief videos, Peter Crichton of Brady Corporation explains the most important factors to consider while evaluating new wire label printers, systems, and label substrates to ensure you choose the best label solution for your needs.

Do you need to meet an industry or other specification?

What environment or chemicals will the labels be exposed to?

Are you marking the wires before or after termination?

What wire gauge are you marking?
