The Advantages of Design and Construction Under One Roof

When you need customized converting equipment, it pays to choose a manufacturer that handles everything in-house

Converting equipment is used across all industries to produce a wide variety of goods. With a range of uses that spans from manufacturing medical devices to car upholstery, it’s easy to see why customization is important. Pinnacle specializes in custom converting equipment that meets your needs as soon as it hits the factory floor. One way we’re able to do this is by handling design and construction under one roof.

Customization vs. Readymade Equipment

There are certainly advantages to ordering equipment that’s not customized to your specifications—but they’re all on the front end. Ordering is simpler and you’re likely to get your converting equipment faster. Once it arrives, though, the real work begins as you try to figure out ways to change your process to match the capabilities of your equipment or make changes to the equipment itself to meet your needs.

In contrast, custom-built converting equipment is designed with your unique needs and processes in mind, with the features and capabilities you require. This means the equipment will fit seamlessly into your production line as soon as it’s delivered, maximizing efficiency and minimizing the downtime that would be inevitable if you have to retrofit readymade equipment into your existing workflow. You’re also paying for exactly what you need, versus buying equipment with features you may not use.

Additionally, customization tailored to your processes and materials can mean a more user-friendly design, making it easier and safer for your employees to perform their daily tasks and maintenance. It also allows for a more efficient use of space in your facility. With custom equipment, you can eliminate unnecessary steps or clunky processes that may have been required with non-custom equipment, freeing up valuable floor space and streamlining production.

The Benefits of Integrated Design and Construction

One of the key benefits of having design and construction under one roof is the open line of communication and close collaboration between the design and construction teams. This integrated approach ensures that both teams are working with the same game plan from Day 1, reducing the misunderstandings and miscommunication that delay so many construction projects. Close collaboration also enables real-time adjustments and fine-tuning, ensuring the final product meets your exact specifications and needs.

Another advantage of in-house coordination is faster turnaround times and reduced lead times. Since both design and construction are coordinated internally, there is a significant reduction in the “waiting game” that typically goes along with coordinating between two or more separate entities. This means projects move from concept to completion much quicker—and it means you can meet your market demands much sooner.

Finally, having both design and construction under one roof enhances quality control throughout the entire process. From the initial design phase to the final construction, every aspect of the project is under the scrutiny of a unified team. This tight oversight ensures each stage of production meets the highest standards, resulting in a superior final product that stands the test of time.
