Maximum reliability in component and wire identification

Aerospace Labels

In Aerospace and Defence, maximum reliability in identifying wires and components contributes to the optimal uptime of vehicles and their equipment. Brady’s identifying labels and tags defy extreme heat and cold and generally harsh environments without loss in performance. Through absolute quality, Brady’s identifying labels and tags help to reducing maintenance time to a minimum. Brady pioneered in pre-printed aircraft wire-marking in the 1940’s.

Ever since, Brady expanded its sector knowledge and expertise through on the job experience and close relationships with the largest companies in the industry. That is why Brady labels for Aerospace & Defence comply with the most recognised and advanced industry standards. Brady uses its expertise to permanently solve your challenges in component and wire identification, so you can fully focus on other challenges.

The Brady team is dedicated to the needs of the high-end aerospace & defence industry and constantly monitors the latest developments, committed as we are to deliver complete solutions. These include easy to use portable label printers and high volume benchtop printers, backed up by the user-friendly Brady label software, to produce incomparable results at tremendous speed, no matter how challenging the environment.

Aircraft tubing identification

Fluid line tape

In defiance of aggressive liquids

Brady’s Fluid Line Tape, the most widely-used fluid line tape in the aerospace industry, is designed specifically for aircraft tubing identification. This speciality tape, developed in Brady laboratories, defies aggressive hydraulic liquids such as Skydrol™.

Brady's Fluid Line Tape is designed especially for aircraft tubing identification. The subsurface printed, flexible, transparent polyester film tape has a heat activated adhesive. This adhesive offers excellent resistance to fuels, oils, and hydraulic fluids. When the tape is first applied, it can easily be repositioned due to the low initial adhesion.

Properties:
- Colours target MIL-STD-1247C
- Materials performance meets MIL-T-9906C
- Brady's Fluid Line Tape can be used with both thermal transfer and dot matrix printers.

Immovable in extreme heat

high-temp

Extreme Temperature labels can withstand extremely high temperatures (up to 350°C) and are used to identify printed circuit board & electronic components. They are mainly used for traceability and they offer good barcode printability. To resist extreme heat, Extreme Temperature labels are made out of Polyimide, as opposed to Polyester for normal circumstances.

Brady has a wide range of polyimides available in different colours, all with ESD characteristics, suited for automatic applying and usable in a variety of print technologies.

Measured, weighed, and cleared for heavy duty

Resistant-labels

Brady Resistant labels are born from one of the most comprehensive R&D programs in the world. They are launched only after extensive laboratory testing and field-testing with solvents, fuels and chemicals. As a customer you can select the durable material you need and print it using the dedicated ribbon to guarantee resistant labels against all types of solvents.

The lightest heavy-duty identification solution

RFID Integrated Labels provide the entire aerospace ecosystem with a cradle-to-grave data management and lifecycle visibility solution for aircraft items and components. Combined with a high quality print-on-demand system, and ATA Spec 2000 compliant software options, the RFID Integrated Labels are the ultimate tool to simplify and automate aircraft item and component traceability.

Brady's RFID solution will help you achieve:

- Optimised inventory management
- Real-time production visibility
- Improved supply chain integrity
- Increased productivity
- Reduced material expenses

The ultra light weight and flexible B-1000 RFID Alloy Labels provide robust, easy to use and reliable data management and maintenance history visibility for both metal and non-metal components. Its B-1100 RFID Air Label counterpart provides a flexible and ultra-light weight solution with extra read range for non-metal aircraft items.

Most widely used wire and cable markers for a reason

wirecablelabelling

Brady offers a full range of wire & cable labelling solutions. Brady’s self-laminating labels are the most popular wire identification solution in ICT & Telecom, especially used with copper cables, the typical CAT6 or CAT7 solutions. Brady offers specific labels that, when removed, don’t damage a fibre-optic cable. What’s more, Brady fibre-optic cable labels only slightly touch the fibre-optic and never interfere with its data transfer capacity.

Self-laminating labels protect their printing with a water and UV resistant overlaminate, making them suitable for use both outdoors and underground. Our sleeves can be repositioned when applied. Once heated, they are also insulating. The Brady Tag range offers many options including overlaminates and the ability to withstand harsh environments for many years. For panelbuilders, Durasleeves are the preferred solution, allowing identification of cables before or after they are attached.
