Gefran SpA, an Italian manufacturer of process sensors and automation control instrumentation and components, has completed a substantial production upgrade at its Winchester, Mass., manufacturing facility. This investment is part of Gefran SpA’s $4.5 million investment in its production facilities worldwide to address production needs of the company’s pressure sensor and potentiometer product lines.

Gefran’s U.S. investment resulted in new automatic assembly and calibration equipment for the production of its extrusion melt pressure sensors at the Winchester facility. The new equipment uses digital electronic technology that enables calibration of the product’s circuitry to be done via integrated software. The equipment also increases production capacity.
