The Medical Industry offers a unique opportunity for an innovative, custom design and manufacturing company like Chase Machine & Engineering. Our designs and strategic partnerships have long focused on textile, nonwoven and disposable materials. The market for disposable nonwoven products in hospital and healthcare settings is limitless. When you add to that the variety of products medical staff and public safety personnel utilize, the possibilities are endless in a market that is difficult to predict.
Face masks, hospital garments, protective footwear, gloves and accessories offer patients and staff protection from infectious disease. In patient care settings, medical disposables are used in bedding, pillows and gowns, as well as disposable diapers, ice packs, wipes, wound dressings, gauze pads and personal care products, to name a few.
As nonwoven manufacturers work to improve their products and processes, Chase remains committed to assisting our customers with more efficient, cost effective production equipment.
At Chase Machine & Engineering we recognized long ago the potential for growth in the Filtration Industry. In 1995 George Gil, President of Chase Machine & Engineering developed and patented an alternative method to the cumbersome string-stitching and gluing process used to manufacture synthetic pocket air filters.
Mr. Gil’s invention led to improvements in filter media by manufacturers, ultimately improving the overall quality and efficiency of filter production, along with a safer, more efficient operation to produce an environmentally-friendly product.
In 1998, the Chase Synthetic Pocket Filter machine received the Filtration & Separation Product Achievement award for Product of the Year, competing against numerous domestic and international companies. At that time Mr. Gil stated what is very true today, “the filtration market is growing by leaps and bounds”.

Filters play a major role in our lives improving the cleanliness of air and liquids in industries such as transportation, water treatment, waste management, healthcare, energy, food and beverage and more. We are proud to manufacture equipment for products that bring value to many customers.
As a custom machine builder serving a wide range of industries that produce thousands of different products, Chase engineers know how to handle textile and nonwoven materials. Our five decades of web handling expertise combined with our flexibility in the design process have resulted in new and innovative solutions to complex manufacturing problems. Whether your application calls for winding, slitting, festooning, laminating, embossing, inspecting or any other assembly or process method for textile and nonwoven materials, our experienced staff will recommend specific production equipment to meet your needs. Our experience is in continuous fiber or web applications from .005” to 130” wide and thicknesses from .0004” to ¼” for medical disposables, air and liquid filters, industrial fabrics, geotextiles, hollow fibers, food packaging and home goods.
When your application calls for ‘proof of concept’ or product samples for benchmark testing and market research, our Material Applications Lab is equipped to test materials, assembly and processing methods in a private setting. For a fraction of the cost of new production equipment, Chase engineers and/or technicians will assist you during your visit. The Material Applications Lab may be reserved by the hour, day or week.
The Converting Industry offers a unique opportunity for an innovative, custom design and manufacturing company like Chase Machine & Engineering. Whether you are manufacturer or a contract converter, companies rely on Chase equipment to wind, slit, laminate, festoon, weld, emboss and inspect thousands of consumer, medical and industrial products.
When companies are hesitant to make an investment in capital equipment or require a short run of a new product for evaluation or market testing, converting companies are there to fill the need. Chase is the preferred vendor of several converting companies when they need equipment to meet their customer’s needs. We partner with industry leaders to supply turnkey ultrasonic, impulse and hot air sealing equipment to improve existing products and to develop processes that are safe, efficient and environmentally-friendly.

Industrial fabrics come in a wide variety of widths, weights and construction to meet specific custom applications and are utilized in many industries for a wide range of applications. Used primarily for marine and recreational products, insulation, filtration, electronics, protective garments, containment, commercial and construction, industrial fabrics are water repellent, flame retardant, UV protected, durable and environmentally friendly.
Industrial fabrics are found in many products we use every day and depending on the application, the fabric may be woven or nonwoven and require a special finish or remain untreated. Chase Machine & Engineering has a long history in designing equipment to meet customer-specific applications.
Working together with our customers, Chase engineers and lab technicians continually test materials and assembly and processing methods to deliver equipment that is newer, faster and more efficient, for a timely return on your investment. From start to finish, all designs and manufacturing are produced in-house to ensure confidentiality and quality control.
Chase Machine & Engineering has a long history of designing and manufacturing custom downstream solutions for extrusion, hollow fiber and monofilament lines. Our primary focus is the small “lab market” integrating unwinds, rewinds and laminators into continuous process lab extrusion lines up to 30” wide, and also Cast Film and Flexible and Rigid sheet lab extrusion lines.
Our experience covers a wide range of applications from sheet extrusion for recreational applications and industrial materials, to small food and consumer product packaging. Chase builds winders for profile and tubing extrusions; unwinds, laminators and rewinds for cast film and sheet lines; and rewinds for blown film lines. From start to finish, all designs and manufacturing are produced in-house to ensure confidentiality and quality control.
Geotextiles provide important benefits in a variety of civil and environmental engineering applications. Widely used for reinforcement, separation, drainage, erosion control and moisture barrier, Geotextiles are durable and environmentally friendly.
The woven and nonwoven Geotextile market offers many opportunities for a custom design and manufacturing company like Chase Machine & Engineering. Depending on the specific application, Geotextiles come in a variety of widths, weights and construction.
Our five decades of web handling expertise combined with our flexibility in the design process have resulted in new and innovative solutions to complex manufacturing problems. Our experience is in continuous fiber or web applications from .005” to 130” wide and thicknesses from .0004 to ¼”.
