A name plate is an item that displays someone’s name. Name plates are usually shaped as rectangles but are also seen in other shapes, sometimes taking on the shape of someone’s name. The primary use of name plates is for informative purposes, as in an office environment, where name plates are mounted on doors or walls in order to identify employees. Name plates are distinct from name tags. Name tags tend to be worn on uniforms or clothing whereas name plates tend to be mounted on doors, walls, or desktops. Name plates are also distinct from name plaques. Plaques are items of larger dimensions that are designed to communicate more information than a name and title.

Office name plates

Office name plates generally are made out of plastic or wood and usually contain one or two lines of text. The standard format for an office name plate is to display a person’s name on the first line and a person’s job title on the second line. It is common for organizations to request name plates that exclude the job title. The primary reasons for excluding job titles are to extend the longevity of a name plate and to promote a culture of meritocracy, where the strength of one’s thoughts are not connected to one’s job title. Name plates without job titles have longer lives because someone can reuse the same name plate after changing job titles. It is rare for an office name plate to contain three or more lines of text. Although office name plates range in size, the most popular name plate size is 2 inches x 8 inches (5.08cm x 20.32cm). Office name plates typically are made out of plastic. This is because plastic is an inexpensive material relative to wood and metal. More expensive name plates can be manufactured out of bronze. To promote consistency, organizations tend to use the same style name plate for all employees. This helps to achieve a standard look. Office name plates are not restricted to for-profit enterprises. Many non-profit and governmental agencies have a need for name plates. For plastic and wooden name plates, the names are etched into the material through a number of processes, including mechanical engraving, laser engraving, or whittling.

Personal name plates

Name plates are also popular for personal reasons. Parents often like to adorn the doors of their children’s rooms with name plates. These name plates are conventionally crafted out of wood, not plastic or metal. Because the name plates are meant for children, these personal name plates tend to come in fun shapes. Examples of fun shapes include teddy bears, bluebirds, dogs, and the child’s name. These name plates also tend to be more colorful than office name plates. Mounting options are either by nail or by adhesive. Wooden name plates are not normally glued onto doors, as the glue may leave a messy residue and make it harder to remove the name plate. Larger personal name plates also include graphics or artwork, such as a horse or a baseball bat, that match the interests of the identified person.

There is a growing trend to use name plates for vanity purposes. In these cases, the name plates are fashioned out of gold, silver, or other metals and worn as a form of jewellery.

Name Plate Holders

Name plates are usually sold as two separate components: the manufactured name plate insert and the name plate holder. This setup allows the name plate insert to be used in a variety of settings depending on the specific holder--the same plastic, wood, or metal name plate insert can usually be removed and reinserted into another holder style with minimal effort; thereby creating a new name plate application. Various name plate holders range from wall and door mounts, desk holders, to cubicle hangers.


Name Plates on Products

Name plates are also used on products in China and other countries to designate the producer, the brand, and/or the product name. They are related to data plates which display information such as the "Made In" label and other such labels. Mislabelling a name plate or a data plate opens the mislabeler to fraud liability. In the most general sense, a liability is anything that is a hindrance, or puts one at a disadvantage. ...

Nameplate (0 words)
It is common practice to determine the power input of two motors by comparing nameplate amps of the original motor with those of the replacement.
But, the nameplate may not tell the entire story, and as a superior service technician, you need to be aware of the chapters that are missing.
Since nameplate amps reflect total current consumption of the motor (including current converted to output power and current lost to heat), higher nameplate amps on a single-phase motor can just as likely indicate poorer conversion efficiency as increased power output.
