CAD Graphics, Inc., a high-tech graphic design company that specializes in creating instrumentation artwork, has found a new market for itself within the antique restoration industry.

“I have been converting instrument faceplates and dials for almost two decades,” explains owner Jim Moltzan, “but have recently been receiving requests for instrumentation used on antique fire engines, museum exhibits, boats, and other unusual applications.” Becoming a member of the Society for the Preservation & Appreciation of Antique Motor Fire Apparatus in America has brought fresh exposure to Moltzan’s craft of giving new life to old, rusted instrumentation.

Cad Graphics, Inc., prepares custom artwork for new or existing instrumentation dial faces. The graduations, arcs, numbering, lettering, and logos are drafted on a CAD (computer-aided drafting) system and then printed onto high quality film. The film is then laminated directly onto the dial face. All finished dial faces are fade resistant, and glycerin and silicone submersible.

Cad Graphics, Inc., is dedicated to servicing manufacturers, distributors, and end users of industrial pressure gauges, thermometers, and other various types of measurement instrumentation. Services include converting a customer's existing instrument dial to visually depict exactly whatever message is to be conveyed on the dial face.

Gauge conversions are available for instruments with faceplates sizes from 1-1/2” up to 8”. Camera-ready artwork can also be purchased for companies printing and producing their own custom faceplates. Visit http://www.customdials.com for more information.

Cad Graphics, Inc., was established in 1991 by Moltzan, a technician with more 15 years experience in the industrial instrument field and who recognizes the need for quick delivery, low pricing, and high quality service and products. Other unique services the company offers include supplying digital artwork for applications such as overlays, screen-printing, control panels, and brochures.
