Mechanical Design

Geared to Meet Our Customers’ Needs with Cutting-Edge Technology

Alexander & Associates started as a mechanical design firm in 1943, and over those many years, our team has designed equipment ranging across a wide scope of industries. This vast experience means our designers and engineers bring a wealth of ideas and options to each customer’s design challenges.

Our expertise spans a variety of industry-standard and custom/specialized machines, including (but not limited to) high-speed production machines, assembly and packing machines, tooling, fixtures, gauges, and remote handling systems.

Essential to success in today’s fast-paced, ever-changing, and global design environment is a commitment to seek out and apply “cutting-edge” technology. Our designers are continually exposed to new products and technologies and charged with evaluating how these advances may benefit a customer’s project.

Expertise & Core Competencies in Mechanical Design

Because design teams are geared to meet our customer’s mechanical design project needs with state-of-the-art technologies, we utilize the latest CAD systems with 3-D capabilities and associative geometry. Our computer specialists are networked and trained in-house, so our design teams have access to the fastest, latest, and most complete design tools available for specialty machines as well as OEM integration and optimization.
