Gorton is a revival of the default typeface for the Gorton engraving machines (original specimen). That typeface and typefaces derived from it have been used for a wide range of products, from aircraft instruments (source) to computer keyboards (source). URW offers a digital font named “Gordon” that seems to be based on the Gorton typeface—but it is quite different, has no lowercase letters and its quality is poor.
