Dillon Manufacturing Inc. uses CNC milling to machine its full-grip (pie) blank jaws for air chucks to the highest possible accuracy for workpiece location, enabling the chucks to firmly hold thin-wall and deformation-sensitive workpieces. The full-grip jaws fit standard in chuck sizes ranging between 4” and 10” diameters. Full-grip jaws are available in 1018 steel and 6061 aluminum, and standard jaw heights are between 1’ and 4”.

Customers can request jaw customization – experienced Dillon application engineers perform a quotation of these engineering services at no charge. Custom jaws are typically available with industry-leading lead-times of three days or less. Dillon manufactures all of its products in the USA and is ISO 9001:2015-registered. 


  • 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.

  • Pins: The Alternative To Parallels

    These vise jaws use protruding, mechanical pins to repeatedly support workpieces either horizontally or at angles. They are said to allow quicker setups than conventional parallels.
