Value-Added Assembly Services

COMPONENT ASSEMBLY

GOING BEYOND COMPONENT MOLDING TO DELIVER CLIENTS SECONDARY PART INSTALLATION, BONDING, AND PAINT-READY SURFACES

Besides molding Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP) components exclusively, Goldshield’s manufacturing expertise, combined with our Engineering support team, and an active QMS system, has enabled our manufacturing staff to effectively offer “Value-Added” assembly services.

The majority of FRP molded component requests that come through our facility request value-add services. These services include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Secondary component installation
  • Bonding services
  • Thermal and acoustical insulation
  • Primer paint

Additionally, Goldshield manages the procurement, logistics, and installation of required parts and equipment.

Secondary Component Installation

Currently, we offer multiple levels of component assembly based on the specific needs of our customers. This includes sub-assembly of multiple fiberglass parts into a single component, and the installation of structural reinforcements, air plenums, air pre-cleaners, noise mitigation tubes, “B-side” bracketry, rivet nuts, wiring harnesses, lighting systems, speaker systems, and circuit boards. While there are limitations, communicate your specific needs to our program management team. In return, we will provide details allowing your organization to finalize a quantifiable make/buy decision.

Thermal and Acoustic Insulation

Insulation application is a unique service provided by Goldshield. Our manufacturing team is capable of finishing your composite part with various types of insulation. From a spray polyurethane foam (SPF) that adds acoustic, thermal and structural properties to a mylar backed foam sheets that provide superior sound abatement and thermal protection, Goldshield has the process capabilities to effectively meet your specific needs.

Bonding Capability

Goldshield provides varying degrees of bonding or gluing capabilities. Besides the basic bonding of support blocks and the use of special adhesives to affix “B-side” metal bracketry, Goldshield is proficient at bonding heavy-duty formed steel structural reinforcements. Goldshield, supported by an effective QMS process, can deliver complete, precise components, thus reducing your internal production labor hours by focusing on installation of a single component vs. a series of individual parts.

In support of complex, high volume, repetitive bonding needs, Goldshield has the capability to develop custom bonding nests that promote manufacturing efficiency and consistency. This allows Goldshield to maintain industry-leading component quality. These aren’t hollow words, but proven metrics as measured by our exacting and demanding customers.

Robotic application of glue is another form of complex bonding that Goldshield has experience integrating into their manufacturing process. Precision, repeatability, and efficiency are all benefits that robotic bonding provides. This process is best suited for low tolerance variability, high volume, multi-year programs.

Paint-Ready Surfaces

While Goldshield still provides a common Class A, high-gloss, gel coat surface finish to many of its customers, paint-ready surfaces have become the norm. To achieve paint-ready surfaces, Goldshield offers variations of two basic processes; a sanded gel-coat finish and a primer painted top-coat finish. To support our primer paint capabilities, we have three paint booths in our ISO-certified facilities.

On-Time Delivery

Goldshield gets parts out the door and into client’s hands with a 99.4% on-time delivery standard, and with our commitment to delivering quality molded components, our products are 99.6% defect-free. This means we’ve become one of the most trusted Tier 1 suppliers in molded fiberglass manufacturing.
