Testing and calibration – the importance of labels

Working in the calibration, testing and quality control sector requires accuracy, fastidious attention to detail and record-keeping. Testing and tagging is particularly important in the medical, scientific, food and refrigeration industries, where compliance with regulations needs to be stringently monitored.

At LNI, we understand that once an asset has been verified for safety, accuracy and compliance, a label is usually used to record and track calibration and testing requirements, often hand-in-hand with electronic record-keeping. These labels need to be:

  • Easy to apply
  • Easy to write on
  • Tamper-proof
  • Available in a wide range of colours and styles.

LNI has a comprehensive range of calibration tags and stickers for use in measurement, testing, inspection, quality control and compliance services to ensure assets meet their required state, national and international accredited standards.

Example - The importance of elevator inspections

Every day, millions of people around the world rely on elevators to get to and from their homes and workplaces. Regular testing and inspection of elevators is critical as the consequences of failure could be catastrophic!

One of our customers provides annual safety checks for elevators and lifts in buildings. These regular inspections need validating, usually requiring the use of metal nameplates to record the most up to date information at each inspection. These elevator nameplates are a critical part of elevator testing and inspections. Any adjustments, inspections or modifications must be recorded and marked on these plates. And these plates help ensure that elevators remain compliant with all relevant standards.


Example - Pharmaceuticals – accuracy is essential.

Another industry where calibration and accuracy are essential is pharmaceutical. Many instruments and machines are used to measure and manufacture pharmaceutical products. Product quality and safety relies on accuracy, so strict calibration practices are critical to ensure compliance, and minimise costs associated with lost batches, not to mention the potential fines for any breaches.

LNI’s durable, custom calibration and maintenance labels are used throughout major medical and pharmaceutical organisations, ensuring you meet any industrial standard requirements


Why choose LNI calibration and testing labels?

  • We offer a wide range of base materials including vinyl, polyesters, clear polycarbonates, metallised films, electrostatic and foil.
  • LNI’s self-adhesive labels can be engineered for full outdoor durability including resistance to UV, weather, abrasion and chemicals.
  • Need a specific shape for your label? We can cut our labels to any custom design, or have a full range of traditional shapes like squares, ovals and rectangles.
  • Can’t afford to have your label fail? Some of our labels are made to self-destruct if someone attempts removal, while others are permanently indented when written on with a pen, so if the pen is rubbed off, the indentation on the label can still be read (how clever is that)!
  • We can supply our labels as single parts, on sheets or in strips.

And all of LNI’s labels are designed, engineered and made right here in Australia.
