Dillon Manufacturing Promotes Comprehensive Chucks and Jaws
Dillon Manufacturing’s line of application chucks includes a wide variety of solutions for many workholding challenges.
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.
