Our facility and staff are trained for strict manufacturing standards and guidelines. OEM (original equipment manufacturing) is a term coined by companies from many market segments. Including but not limited to: automotive, aerospace, marine, health care, and recreation industries.
Production water transfer printing requires due diligence up front to ensure standards and guidelines are met. With hundreds of successfully fulfilled production contracts, Hydro Dip knows what it takes to succeed in a production environment.
Our production flow outline:
Communication – A critical element to any successful production run comes down to communication. We keep the channel open from day one. We assign a production manager to each project from day one. You will know the cost, time line, and terms of payment prior to moving forward.
Project outline – We put together a comprehensive plan of attack. This includes materials required for the job from basecoat to film to topcoat, order fulfillment timelines, jigs and tooling requirements, costs associated with production, and delivery dates.
Check In – Upon approval and payment terms, our customers ship their products to our facility. Our staff then takes inventory. After inventory, we add the products to our production schedule.
Tooling – We build tooling for your items. Tooling allows us to perform water transfer printing on multiple items. This process will streamline costs.
Scheduling – We add the production requirements to our schedule.
Production – We move into production based on scheduling. Production consists of rigging the items to jigs, prep of the items, adhesion promotion when required, priming, quality inspection, basecoat, film application, quality inspection, and finally top coat.
Quality inspection – After top coat is applied and cure time is complete, we again inspect the items for quality. Our philosophy is to always provide the best quality prior to completion.
Packaging – Our staff takes pride in packing each item to ensure there is no damage during the shipping process.
Shipping, Order Fulfillment – Once the product has been securely packaged, we arrange for the items to be shipped via the carrier of your choice.
