Because virtually everything we produce is custom and built-to-order, we at CDS typically quote every project individually. Contacting us through this website, emailing, calling or faxing us will illicit an immediate response. Whether you know exactly what you want or haven’t a clue, CDS Sales Staff will work with you to get you a quote and drawing of what you actually need, usually with options.
At CDS, we’re not simply interested in “getting a sale". We want to create success stories, developing new and nurturing old partnerships with our customers. Our expertise allows us to “make custom easy” and we pride ourselves on providing intuitive, comprehensive solutions for today’s display applications.
The normal progression of events includes contact with CDS, followed by quotation and CAD support. Given successful award of the quoted project, an official purchase order is placed with us and a final CAD drawing is issued for approval. Once approved, the product is completely detailed in CAD and released to production.
Once produced, the product is factory tested, photographed, packed and shipped. Emailing us with photo of the completed installation gets you a nice new CDS Company polo shirt!
The CDS Factory is comprised of a complete metal machine shop, wood shop, clean room, test & assembly area and shipping/receiving depot. Our in-house metal fabrication equipment includes (5) CNC Mills, a CNC Lathe, CNC Laser, a 50 Ton Press, a 40 Ton Brake, a CNC Punch a 120" Shear, (5) Welding Bays and (2) Band Saws. Our Wood Shop has a giant, dual bladed precision sliding saw, panel saw, boring machines and a CNC Edge Bander.
For our Custom Display Solutions, we work with a host of raw materials including stainless steel, aluminum, plastics, glass, hardwood, MDF, fberglas, fabrics and more. Marrying these materials together requires a wide range of fastening techniques, including bolting, welding, bonding and upholstering, just to name a few. At CDS, we are always researching new and improved ways of bringing the finest materials together for our clients.
Shipping with detailed installation instructions, most CDS products are relatively simple to assemble and some smaller units require no assembly at all. For more complex systems (that we feel could use a little supervisory help), we can provide a single technician to guide and assist local labor. For more radical systems still, we will provide a team of Factory Certified CDS Technicians to unpack, install and test the entire system. CDS is always ready to assist with the installation of our products. We offer installation support worldwide… there’s virtually no place we won’t go!
CDS Design & Engineering Staff use state-of-the-art design tools like SolidWorks™ to create CAD renderings of potential projects (a.k.a. “feasibility studies”) in addition to detailed drawings for fabrication.Since 2000, CDS has amassed a library of literally thousands of CAD drawings of studies and projects; a terrific resource for quickly evaluating the viability and cost of new products.
For CDS fabricated Products and Solutions, we provide free CAD studies for your proposals.CDS also offers design services by contract.
WE MAKE CUSTOM EASY. CDS Sales Staff are experts in quickly determining what type of Custom Display Solution will best suit your needs. Whether you know exactly what you want or have only the faintest clue, our experienced Sales Engineers can deftly narrow our wide range of potential solutions down to a few, practical options. We then quickly forward you a project quotation along with literature and a CAD example or specific design as required.
In addition to being experts on all things CDS, our Sales Engineers have a broad knowledge of display technologies and ancillary components that comprise the larger, custom display system. In this way, we can guide the inexperienced by making recommendations on complementary equipment that has historically worked well with ours.
From simple projector stands to complex, electro-mechanically actuated, touch interactive dispaly walls, CDS Sales Engineers are ready to help make your custom display dream become reality!
Virtually every product that CDS manufactures is tested before it ships. As with most thisngs custom, most are unique and many times are the first article. Even when this isn't the case, we at CDS like to ensure that your product is design and defect free when you receive it and shop testing is the very best way to do that.
For this reason, for projection systems, we have the projector shipped to us. Monitors are more straightforward, but if there is the slightest doubt, we bring it in house. Your frustration-free installation success is our repeat customer!
