Compressing & Laminating Aluminum to Non-woven for the Automotive Industry

Conversion Technologies International is one of the leading providers in contract lamination services.  This allows us to face the trials and challenges of new products head-on, meeting the needs of clients from many different industries.

Client Case Study

A client from the automotive industry came to us in search of custom compressing and laminating services, specifically compressing a 1” non-woven material by 80%, laminating it to aluminum, and then sheeting it.

This particular customer had been to several firms before approaching CTI, and had not found a company that could deliver the compressing & laminating services that they required.  This left the customer jaded, unsure if we could accomplish the task at hand.

We proved that we were up to the task and completed this request in record time, leaving our automotive customer more than satisfied.  We were able to analyze our customer’s problem, and determine a solution.  This allowed us to quickly supply production material to meet the incredible volume of 400,000 parts per year.  The parts ranged from 20″ to 48″ wide and 30″ to 60″ in length.

The Strength of CTI

One of our greatest strengths is the aptitude for analyzing, evaluating and meeting the challenges of today’s industrial demands.  Our superb ability to work with a variety of industries, create new products, redesign, and modify existing equipment to meet the unique needs of our customers set us apart from all competitors.  The highlights of this project are show on the chart below.
