Core Questions- What is a UID Identification Label? Is it Different than IUID Marking? Why is a DoD ID number important? What Information Should Be Included on Your IUID Labels?

An IUID marking is a global asset tag tracking system with which the Department of Defense manages its inventory with a unique DOD ID number. The terms UII number (Unique Item Identifier) and IUID marking (Item Unique Identifier) and DoD ID number are typically used interchangeably. UIDs label items that are delivered to the Department of Defense with a unique identification number. Each IUID marking has machine-readable data that distinguishes it from other items that are similar. To comply with MIL-STD 130 n, each UII number will need to have both constant and incrementing fields.  For example, specific missiles may all be in the same DoD category based on part number, but each individual piece would have its own UII number. The following methodologies of creating a DOD UII number are acceptable:

  • DOD ID Number Construct 1, composed of Issuing Agency Code, an Enterprise Identifier, and a Serial Number unique within the Enterprise – Standard IUID marking/UID identification label formatting
  • DOD ID Number Construct 2, composed of Issuing Agency Code, an Enterprise Identifier, a Part Number and a Serial Number unique within the Part Number – Standard IUID marking/UID identification label formatting

For the US military, a unique UII number is vital to maintaining proper inventory, maintenance schedules, and minimizing lost and stolen equipment. The DoD unique identification number that is encoded on the IUID marking, is marked with a Data Matrix, commonly called a “UID barcode.” That is not technically correct, as the “UID barcode” is really a Data Matrix code, but the “UID barcode” jargon has remained in common use. In compliance with MIL-STD-130 n, the contents of the “UID barcode” Data Matrix are encoded with the syntax of ISO/IEC 15434 and the semantics of ISO/IEC 15418.

The ID Label Printer with the Right Selection of Substrate

Data Graphics has any materials you need for your UIDs, and any printing methodology you need to create the perfect IUID tag. These IUID tag substrates include:

IUID Labels for Proper IUID Marking

IUID Labels for Proper IUID Marking

  • Anodized Aluminum Substrate (Natural or with Colored Top-Coats for Metal Asset Tags)
  • Polycarbonate Label Substrate, such as Lexan for UIDs
  • Tesa Tape for UIDs
  • Polyimide Decal Substrate for UIDs
  • Thermlfilm for thermally printed UIDs
  • Polyester Label Substrate, similar to Mylar for UIDs
  • Metalphoto ®  Substrate for Custom Metal Asset Tags (Recognized by the Gov’t as the Most Durable Substrate for UIDs)

All of the materials we use for our IUID labels can withstand harsh conditions such as chemicals, abrasions, solvents and high temperatures. Our most durable and resilient IUID marking substrate, however, is metalphoto®. Metalphoto UIDs stand up remarkably well against caustic agents like acid, and salt spray. Metalphoto IUID tags can survive for decades outdoors in even the most extreme environments. Each metalphoto IUID tag is resistant to abrasion, cleaners, lubricants, fuels, salt spray, temperature extremes, and UV-degradation.

The ID Labels Printer with the Right Printing Methodologies for Your Unique ID Order

We provide countless printing options for your IUID tag printing. We can manufacture IUID tags via metalphoto, hot stamping, digital printing, and laser etching. We provide a number of adhesive options so your UID tag can be applied wherever you need. We carry pressure sensitive, solvent activated foam, removable, and permanent adhesives for IUID labels.

Ensure Your UIDs Meet Specifications

All of our IUID labels meet the MIL-STD 130 n requirement so you can trust that your IUID tag comes verified and validated. We carry the most advanced UID barcode software in the industry ensuring your IUID tags meet MIL-STD 130 requirements. Data Graphics also uses the most sophisticated of UIDs Compliance Verifier. This machine evaluates and verifies the UII number and symbol according to specifications in MIL-STD 130 and DFAR 252.211-7003. Data Graphics also meets several DoD MIL specifications, such as MIL-P-19834, MIL-P-15024, MIL-A-8625, GG-P-455.
