We make challenges fun.
Our product design team can help you pick the right solution for even the simplest of projects. We’ll work with you on the design of your product so that it yields the best possible results. Our dedication to high quality is our commitment to you. With Auld’s design and production team working closely together, we have the ability to bring forth the realization of your project in the most cost effective manner.
Customers frequently come to us for solutions even when solving the issue doesn’t involve manufacturing a physical product. We take pride in solving the complicated aspects of research and development projects that revolutionize process innovation, aesthetics, or even functions. Quick turnaround on prototypes helps open the lines of communication and encourages clearly articulated and precise feedback, which saves time and money.
Craftsmanship that’s second to none.
We’ll work hand in hand with you to develop new ideas or modify existing ones. Our in-house graphic design and screen printing facilities enable us to completely develop or expand on ideas in a design. We never stop looking for innovative ways to enhance your products, and delivery them with the highest quality and utmost precision.
Do you want your branding to last the life of your product? Would you like to ensure that the product will be able to survive freezing temperatures, high humidity, temperature cycling, or salt spray?
At Auld, we provide expertise in emblem and label solutions that meet or exceed automotive, marine, and custom testing standards. We have partnerships in place, including with our parent company EG Industries, which allow us to work together through the development phase and ensure a product that can perform in specific environments.
We can also provide products that meet UL standards and are ROHS compliant.
We’ll help you gain insight with prototypes.
If your team has an idea of the type of emblem or label you’re looking for, we can build a prototyping plan that takes into account the various options available based on your need and within a certain set of guidelines. These can include various assortments of colors, substrates, adhesives, and tooling considerations.
We can then move into prototype production runs based on agreed upon production substrates and adhesive, production tooling, and on press color. Most prototyping projects can be completed in 2-7 business days and provide an excellent launch point for full scale production.
If you’re further along in your project and you’ve already got an idea on the type of label you require, give us a call and we’ll customize a prototyping package suitable for you. We’ll take your team’s ideas, build a design, and layout a package that meets all your criteria including price point, time frame, and performance characteristics.
Key Considerations In Prototyping
- What is your time frame?
- What is your budget?
- What are the major areas you are hoping to benefit from in the prototyping process?
- Are you okay with a non-production piece for evaluation purposes?
- Should we combine a small scale prototype run with testing of some kind to ensure proper performance standards?
- Does your team have artwork that is usable for prototyping or will you need assistance in this area?
- Is your sizing already determined before prototyping?
- Do you need help analyzing recess sizing to ensure proper fit?
PPAP – Production Part Approval Process
PPAP is a source of confirmation that a part is designed and manufactured in a way that will consistently meet quality and engineering requirements during production runs.
The purpose of PPAP is to establish a manufacturing procedure that produces sustainable outcomes throughout each part of the process, ensuring accurate results that are consistent through each operation.
It also provides documentation about the process for producing the parts that’s understood by customers, engineers, and quality control.
For customers that require PPAP documentation, please add an additional 2 weeks into your product launch time frame.
We’re always improving.
We have a modern manufacturing facility, apply best-in-class processes, and use high quality materials during production, combined with strict tolerances in all our projects.
In addition, each label or emblem we produce is individually inspected throughout the manufacturing process. Through continual monitoring, we ensure no less than premium quality at each and every stage of the production process.
