Finding the right equipment according to your production process
Manufacturing facilities often have a systematic approach to converting and use outdated (>20+ years) or low-output machinery that was originally built for different production use. Even within the same industry, upstream and downstream processes are specific to your product and manufacturing facility. Obstacles and impediments caused by low-output or imprecise machinery cause hidden downtime, which can trickle down to thousands of dollars lost after production and distribution.
Giving the Pinnacle team visibility into the entire production process enables our clients to have a greater throughput. This greater throughput generally receives a very quick return on investment.
When the right equipment is implemented into production it tends to develop a machine operator’s skills. This can reduce or even remove menial or laborious tasks from their day-to-day operation increasing employee satisfaction.
With over 30 years of converting production process experience, Pinnacle engineers can identify potential areas for improvement in efficiency across manufacturing industries. Pinnacle has worked in healthcare, aerospace and defense, consumer goods, home construction, automotive, and renewable energy industries.
Providing equipment recommendations for your materials and products
Apart from zeroing in on the right converting machinery for your production process—slitter rewinders, sheeting machines, core cutting machines, or others—our machinery models are also designed for specific materials.
Pinnacle builds specialized machinery suited to handling and converting non-woven, adhesives, vinyl, foam, foil, film, and other materials.
Combining equipment elements to form customized machinery for your needs
Certain products and processes require tailor-made machinery. The Pinnacle team excels at designing custom machinery solutions for manufacturing processes with multiple elements that can reduce costs and production time.
Pinnacle converting equipment is made for each production industry according to the final product’s converting and winding type. Our state-of-the-art converting equipment can also be custom-crafted for specific material and production facility requirements.
We’ve created custom machinery for many of our clients. A recent example is The Schlitter. We custom fabricated The Schlitter as an all-in-one slitting, sheeting, and rewind machine. These processes previously required three separate pieces of machinery that took up facility space and generated higher operating costs. Pinnacle’s custom machinery delivers a wide variety of core-cutting, rewind/unwind, slitter, and sheeting production capabilities at a fraction of the cost.
Our custom solution has versatile production capabilities, making the client’s process far more streamlined and productive. If your production line requires custom machinery, we offer high versatility and flexibility in executing a unique machinery solution.
