Workholding

Need Custom Workholding Solutions? Come to Chapter 2 First!

Do you need a partner that can provide the right workholding solutions to improve your productivity, precision and throughput? Do you have a specific production machining project in mind? Perhaps you need us to come up with a solution to your manufacturing challenges. At Chapter 2 Incorporated, we’ll work with your team to pinpoint the problem and brainstorm solutions. Whether you need simple fixture or have more complex production machining projects, our engineers are ready to help with the following custom workholding solutions:

Leak test fixtures

Leak testing is an inspection procedure that is used to assess whether a part or system is functioning within an allowable leak limit by measuring the amount of pressure that is lost over a given period of time. Liquid or gas held within a part will leak out if there is a flaw such as a hole or a crack.

Welding fixtures

Weld fixtures hold parts with manual or pneumatic clamps in such a way so that they can be tacked or welded together manually or robotically.

Assembly fixtures

Assembly fixtures orientate pieces of an assembly in such a way that they are easy to assemble and decrease the amount of time it takes to build the finished product. It is important to arrange the fixtures suitably to be compatible with the intended operating tools.

Broaching fixtures

Broach Fixtures secure parts in place so that a toothed tool can remove the required material.

Inspection gauges

Inspection gages measure finished parts to a manufacturer specification. Master parts can be used to calibrate the equipment in order to ensure an accurate comparison.

Pressing fixtures

Pressing fixtures are used to provide alignment and support to the circuit boards while inserting press fit connectors.

Machining fixtures

Machining fixtures orientate and secure parts with manual, pneumatic, or hydraulic clamps so that a machining operation can be completed without having a part move. This ensures that an accurate and precise part is created
