Since 1973, Chapter 2 Incorporated has been a full-service manufacturer providing a variety of services to fill any customer need, from prototyping to production-level work. As a contract manufacturer, Chapter 2 Incorporated offers expansive CNC and secondary services, enabling us to fulfill the needs of various industries.
We are a one-stop shop, drastically cutting down on costs and operations. In addition to design for manufacturing (DFM) and engineering, we even offer assembly and finishing services such as painting. Whether we manufacture your parts in-house or call upon our strategic partners, you can rest assured that the Chapter 2 team has the project management capabilities and technical know-how to complete your project per your specifications, on time, and within your budget.
At Chapter 2, we provide a full suite of services to deliver comprehensive solutions for our clients.
The Chapter 2 team takes pride in our core competency: computer numerical control (CNC) machining. For metals, plastics, and fiberglass, our capabilities include:
These capabilities, along with our full-service metrology lab and climate-controlled manufacturing facility equipped with extensive automated machinery, enable us to machine and contract manufacture myriad high-quality products and guarantee on-time delivery. We offer a full suite of value-add and turnkey services to fit any project. Our team will work closely with you from product ideation through production, adhering to lean manufacturing and 5S planning techniques for optimal time and cost savings.
Chapter 2 offers welding and fabrication of parts from small components to larger structural items. We have multiple robotic cells set up with programmable rotary indexing tables. We work with a variety of materials, including steel, stainless steel, and aluminum.
Our welding and fabrication services include:
Our team consists of expert metal fabricators experienced in forming, welding, and plasma cutting for metals as thick as an inch. We have partners for our laser flats and flat press work for a higher level of expertise in multiple areas, while still keeping a competitive cost. Raw materials we work with include coil, sheet, bar stock, tubing, and plate.
Our assembly services range anywhere from subassembly to turnkey direct-to-customer contract assembly. Today, Chapter 2 strives to machine, source, assemble, and monitor assembly projects for orders ranging anywhere from a few components to hundreds.
Our custom production capabilities encompass an array of assemblies, including:
We also offer component procurement and custom packaging.
We can facilitate your custom project needs, or our full-service engineering department can collaborate with you for complete DFM and manufacturing services, including:
Our finishing operations include wet-spray painting, prefinishing, and painting for a variety of different types of materials and components. Our finishing services are compatible with steel, plastic, aluminum, or fiberglass parts.
For pre-finishing, we offer:
Our primer and coating options include:
Value-added/post-finishing services include:
Chapter 2 bases its engineering on the concept of design for manufacturing (DFM), optimizing a product’s construction based on its ideal production method. Our DFM process follows these basic steps:
Chapter 2 is a full-service manufacturer, allowing us to serve a wide range of industries. We continue to grow our customer base and expand into new markets for virtually any company with manufacturing or maintenance needs.
Our company is a great supporter of green energy, and we have experience helping clients in the wind, solar, and hydropower sectors. The power generation industry as a whole benefits from CNC-machined parts for their tight tolerances, error-free finishes, and strength to withstand abrasion and the elements. Our machined product offerings for this sector are quite extensive, delivering bearings, gears, rotors, housings, covers, shafts, rails, and frames for durable product solutions.
The oil and gas sector requires accurate, rugged components for reliable operations. CNC machining offers the precision this industry requires, producing items such as bushings and bearings, washers, fasteners, pins, connectors, shafts, springs, and pump and actuating system parts. At Chapter 2, we can also apply our knowledge of robotic technology, CNC turning and tooling, and assembly to reengineer devices like machining cells to incorporate robotic and automatic tending capabilities in your oil and gas operation.
To maintain high performance in heavy-duty equipment, you need strong, durable parts. CNC machining allows for tight-tolerance fabrication and complex part profiles, ensuring your industrial equipment can hold up in challenging applications. CNC machining can produce quality parts like nuts, screws, pins, shafts, levers, axles, rotors, actuators, and more.
Chapter 2 provides parts for an extensive range of lawn and garden supplies, with more than 30 years of manufacturing experience in this industry alone. We work on components in high-quality materials for everything from lawnmowers, tillers, and tractors to planting, harvesting, and power equipment. Our company can create custom products like gearboxes and assemblies and sub-assemblies for spindles and more. Whatever your application in the lawn and garden sector, the Chapter 2 team is here to help.
At Chapter 2, we understand the mission-critical nature of all healthcare-related parts and devices. To that end, we provide the medical industry with durable, reliable components in a wide range of metals and metal alloys as well as plastics. We use our background in DFM to custom-create precision parts like equipment housings, bases, and bodies; mounting plates and brackets; covers and lids; and components for anything from treadmills to therapy, laboratory, and testing equipment.
Our experience also extends to the following sectors for tight-tolerance, high-performance components:
CNC machining services significantly increase efficiency, accuracy, and productivity in the manufacturing industry. Since our beginnings in 1973, Chapter 2 has maintained its commitment to innovation and continuous improvement. Growing from a tool and die shop into a fully equipped, turnkey manufacturing company, we offer CNC machining and secondary services to fulfill virtually any manufacturing need. We work with a broad spectrum of material options and production processes to provide customers in diverse industries with great service versatility.
From prototyping and DFM to high-volume production and assembly, we are a one-stop shop for precision contract manufacturing. Contact us online or call us at 920-648-8125 for more information on our available services, or request a quote today.
