The Medical Sector
GSM Graphic Arts have been manufacturing specialist labels for the medical industry for over four decades.
We pride ourselves on providing the medical market with durable and high quality labels that will survive severe cleaning and disinfecting routines.
To manufacture hard wearing plastic labels, GSM uses clear polycarbonate or polyester that we can then reverse print, creating a barrier to the ink. These are useful for the labelling of machines used within the sector. We also use this process when manufacturing graphic overlays or control panels for the said machines which can house embossed buttons, hidden until lit windows and / or display screens.
We supply anodised aluminium instruction and warning labels used on rehabilitation equipment. Anodised aluminium is a durable method whereby the aluminium is electrically charged to open its pores; we then print the detail into the pores. Once printed, we seal the aluminium and the ink is essentially sealed beneath the anodic layer. This provides protection from outdoor elements and makes a hard-wearing and scratch resistant surface.
More recently, we have seen requirements for barcode labels within the medical market. Used around hospitals and medical institutions, barcode labels are used for asset management, stock control and equipment tracking. These medical labels can be either under-surface plastic or anodised aluminium to suit the application.
For further information regarding labels that are suitable for the medical market, please contact us by phone on 01845 522 184 or fill in and submit your query using our online contact form. Alternatively, you can request a quote online today.
We offer anti-bacterial labels to meet your requirements whether they are to be used in a washroom environment, medical or even hotels and leisure centres. This is achieved by either using a coated material or, in the case of anodised aluminium nameplates, applying an anti-microbial varnish to the finished label.
With many years experience of producing unique identification and barcode labels GSM can reproduce both linear and datamatrix barcodes labels onto anodised aluminium, under surface printed polycarbonate and even stainless steel.
GSM Graphic Arts can work with a variety of materials and are capable of producing durable and long-lasting catering labels. Having manufactured catering equipment labels for over 45 years, we understand the varying requirements that need to be considered and work with processes and materials that will produce the most efficient and long-lasting catering labels.
