Dillon full grip jaws, machined from 6061 extruded aluminum for increased strength, are now available up to 28” in diameter. Machining from barstock eliminates the porosity inherent with large diameter aluminum castings, providing a stronger and more reliable workholding product, the company says. These jaws can be modified to heights of 10” and widths that extend beyond the chuck face diameter, thus increasing the chuck’s capacity. Dillon Chuck Jaws can provide both standard and special pie jaws in 1.5mm × 60-degree, 3.0 mm × 60-degree, 1/16th × 90-degree and 3/32 × 90-degree serrations, American standard and metric tongue and groove, and acme and square serrated key-type mounting interfaces. Also available in 1018 CR steel and cast iron. Most standard and special jaw modification have less than a two-week lead time.

  • A Study Of The Steady Rest

    When the length and stiffness of a workpiece make it difficult to machine without distorting or deflecting the part, many manufacturers turn to the steady rest as a workpiece support device. This is especially true for long axles, shafts and similar parts used in automotive or heavy equipment applications, and in oil drilling components. The most common application is to support a workpiece during turning or milling and, increasingly, during secondary operations such as ID drilling, boring and producing end face bolthole patterns.

  • Holding Small Parts for Effective Machining on a CNC Router

    A non-woven porous material with a special coating enables vacuum chucks and tables to hold sheets of metal and other materials more effectively on CNC routing machines. The material, called Vilmill, is used as a substrate between the sheet or plate material to be machined and a suitable vacuum table or vacuum chuck where it is held securely in place by the vacuum.

  • Too Small To Touch

    Hummingbird takes on machining work that is too small for most shops to handle. In fact, Hummingbird tries not to handle it either. To accurately machine the tiniest parts, this shop relies on processes that are as hands-off as possible.
