Altra Innovation

We are dedicated to finding new and better ways of handling some of the most demanding power transmission applications. By working closely with our customers and applying the latest technologies in design, materials and manufacturing we have accelerated the development process of bringing new products to the marketplace. With state-of-the-art equipment at our disposal like the UniGraphics solid modeling design package, models can be generated quickly, expediting the initial phases of design and sales process. Our experienced CAD design teams can create simple models, like standard, modular, worm gear speed reducers, for high volume projects as well as complex models for small or large scale custom jobs. Rapid prototyping utilizing 3D printing technology helps turn concept into reality.

We also have full service test labs to validate the integrity of new product designs before we manufacture the product. In the test lab, we are able to simulate many common application scenarios to evaluate problems you may be experiencing on your manufacturing floor. This can decrease down time and expenses associated with trouble-shooting. You can be confident that the Altra product you get is the product you wanted.
