Dillon Manufacturing’s full line of application chucks presents solutions for various workholding applications. 

Dillon’s universal ball-lock power chuck can grip the ID or OD of castings or forgings, and have jaws which pivot up to 5 degrees for a firm grip on uneven surfaces. Inside or outside draw down chucks, sealed to prevent chips and coolant from entering the chuck body, pull the workpiece down to location for increased accuracy — especially benefiting parallel and perpendicular surfaces. Auto-indexing chucks, with positions of four at 90 degrees or eight at 45 degrees, machine multiple surfaces in a single clamping. Retractable jaw shaft chucks, which machine shafts in a single clamping operation, allow operators to change jaws and face drivers for the machining of different shaft sizes.

Additional available application chucks include inside or outside pin arbor chucks, inside clamping mandrels, outside collet chucks, diaphragm chucks, gear chucks, finger chucks, compensating chucks and aluminum wheel chucks.

Dillon application specialists are experienced in workholding requirements for many industries, and are available to assist with chuck and jaw selection. The company manufactures all its products in the USA in ISO 9001:2015 registered facilities.


  • When To Use A Collet Chuck

    Don't assume the standard chuck is the right workholding for every lathe application.

  • Rethinking Indexers And Rotary Tables

    Affordable indexers and fourth-axis rotary tables greatly enhance the capability of vertical machining centers. It’s almost as good as having a horizontal machining center.

  • Making The Most of Modular Fixturing

    Modular fixturing makes sense for this manufacturer, whether it's machining one- or two-of-a-kind parts for its custom machine tools or larger quantities for its contract machining business.
