The challenges facing Aluplex Signalétique

Aluplex Signalétique - identification tokens

1st challenge: growing demand...

Since the start of its activity, Aluplex Signalétique has faced a growing demand. Today, its teams handle over 10,000 engraving orders every year. This includes, for example, 150,000 tokens and just as many labels...

This raises a number of issues:


  • Modernization - the mechanical engraving machines with which the company had started out with could no longer meet its new production requirements
  • Replenishment - the company must be able to benefit from fast, regular deliveries of large quantities of engraving materials.

In short, Aluplex Signalétique must be able to produce quickly and with a consistent quality.

2nd challenge: multifaceted demand

Orders vary greatly depending on the type of customer: quantities, formats, requirements, etc. Aluplex Signalétique needed engraving machines that could meet a wide range of needs.

Solutions offered by Gravotech

Gravotech has made its mark on the industrial engraving market thanks to two strengths:

  • A wide, diversified range of machines made in France;
  • Rapid replenishment of engraving material guaranteed.

We can therefore meet the needs of Aluplex Signalétique.  

Machines and materials adapted to all types of signage

For 20 years, Gravotech has been Aluplex Signalétique's exclusive supplier of engraving machines, both laser and mechanical. Each machine has its own specific advantages, enabling the teams to choose the most suitable one according to their needs. For example, one machine may be faster than the others, but unable to work on large surfaces. Another may provide a neat finish with bevelled edges.

Focus on machines
