Default Convert Opentype to truetype?

Can anyone tell me if it possible to convert an opentype font to truetype?

I have a client who supplies a big customer and labels his products with barcoded and product coded labels that he prints in house using a special labelling application. His customer uses a specially drawn font as part of their corporate ID. This is an open type font.

The problem arises because the labelling app can only use Truetype unless you spend over £400 on an upgrade.

I've thought of using an ai or eps for each of the code numbers but as there are 30 labels to a sheet and a mix of codes from over 60 kinds (some being fractions) it would be a logistical nightmare and I'm also dubious whether the labelling app could even place image files successfully.

Thanks for any thoughts on the matter.


Update - found a font conversion engine works OK. Thx
