Mechanical Design and Manufacturing

Converting Alternatives has over thirty years of experience in designing and manufacturing custom equipment to meet customer’s specific and unique requirements. Provided a package prototype or design and desired run speed, the team at CAI will create a one-of-a-kind machine to produce your product. All units manufactured by CAI come with an extremely intuitive interfaces for diverse operations. As precision is of utmost importance in the packaging industry, Bosch Rexroth Servo motors are utilized for absolute positioning on all critical axis. In opposition to the typical high-cost, long lead time proprietary parts that most manufacturers use, CAI is proud to feature a 90% off-the-shelf parts list. This means the customer’s maintenance team can easily source replaceable parts locally.

Converting Alternatives is committed to delivering with quality, flexibility, and punctuality, and our mechanical design and manufacturing capabilities are no exception.

Before beginning a project, we will assess all relevant documentation and drawings, and create any missing drawings if needed. In the latter stages of product design, our engineers will proactively seek opportunities to lower costs and improve lead time.
