Spotlight On: The Instrumentation Industry

Here at GSM Graphic Arts, we have extensive experience working with a whole host of companies from a vast range of industries. In this article, we take a closer look at how we have served the instrumentation industry over the years, including some of the key products and components we have manufactured for businesses within the sector.

The Instrumentation Industry

Instrumentation is a collective term for the science of measurement and products. GSM Graphic Arts have vast experience manufacturing products for a whole host of businesses within the instrumentation industry that are used for indicating, measuring and recording physical quantities, for the following:

  • Flow
  • Temperature
  • Level
  • Distance
  • Angle
  • Pressure

Any products manufactured that will be used for instrumentation purposes must be capable of ensuring absolute accuracy; the slightest change can make a huge difference in the product’s capability of measuring. Thanks to four decades of experience, paired with continual investment in the latest technology and best practices, GSM Graphic Arts are proud to have one of the most reliable teams in the industry, capable of creating a whole host of graphic arts products to enhance your measuring equipment, no matter what your requirements are.

GSM’s Experience Dealing With Products In The Instrumentation Industry

Over the years, we have expanded our capacity of products suitable for the instrumentation industry, and we now manufacture printed fascia panels, graphic overlays and plastic control panels. These products are used to cover instrumentation products such as flowmeter and actuators among other measuring instruments.

If you are looking for under-surface printed fascias, then be sure to see what GSM Graphic Arts can do for you as we utilise the very latest technology to manufacture products that are capable of withstanding day to day usage. Manufactured using various thicknesses of clear plastic, we reverse print onto products to create a barrier to the ink, so that the indicators on the measuring equipment will not be affected by usage.

Not only are we capable of creating high-quality, aesthetically pleasing components to complement your product, but we have a whole host of other features that can enhance your product’s usability. For example, overlays can house secret-until-lit windows, embossed buttons and clear or coloured display windows for easy viewing.

With many products used for instrumentation purposes being used outdoors, special measures have to be put in place to ensure the longevity of the product as a whole. That’s why we are also capable of creating labels that can withstand the harshest of working environments; our weatherproof labels are hard wearing and have been tested to ANSI specifications for UV durability to ensure they remain fully legible for at least 5 years.


With over 40 years of experience manufacturing products for the instrumentation market, GSM Graphic Arts’ experts have a vast knowledge of exactly what is required by businesses within the sector.
