Keystone has experience and expertise in engineering many types of custom wire and metal displays for a broad range of industries. We develop grid displays, floor displays, wall displays, shelf displays, hanging displays, equipment displays and rolling displays. We serve clients who merchandise products in hardware and home improvement stores, food and beverage outlets, and retail specializing in pet care, automotive aftermarket, houseware products, and many specialty markets.
At Keystone, display design and engineering go hand-in-hand and are part of our overall development process, which also includes CAD drawing development, prototyping, quality and safety review, and manufacturing. We go beyond providing you with just a design image, we give consideration to Structure and Strength, Functionality, Assembly, Packaging and Manufacturing Engineering.
Structure and Strength
Using time-tested experience and computer-aided modeling, designs are engineered to assure the display will have the strength to hold the desired product weight and volume, and withstand use in the store environment. For example, simple elements like x-bracing and double-wires can substantially and economically improve the strength of a display
Designs are engineered to position products for the best possible visibility and shop-ability. Types of functional design features include gravity feed systems, waterfalls, product dividers and customized product holders
We engineer displays that require the level of assembly that our clients find acceptable, from fully assembled to completely knock-down. We provide fully-detailed illustrated instructions which facilitate the best possible assembly efficiency.
Development of packaging is taken as seriously as development of the display itself, starting with the design of the display components. Cartons and pads are developed on site and tested for performance.
Keystone goes to great lengths to make sure that we can manufacture the designs we present. Our sales and design people are in the shop almost every day checking with our production staff on equipment capability, “Can we bend this part to these dimensions?”, and what can be done most efficiently, “Can we produce this shelf in the automatic grid welder if we place the wires here?” In the prototype stage, samples are proven-out with actual production equipment.
Advantages of Putting Emphasis on Engineering with Design
The drawings and pricing provided to our clients during the development process more accurately reflect reality than designs that have not been engineered.
- Making engineering a part of the design process provides a means to build-in quality, instead of accepting sub-optimum performance or last minute scrambling to beef-up and/or adjust the design during production.
- Engineering displays to utilize production equipment capabilities and best manufacturing practices lead to more reliable quality and cost-effective manufacturing.
