Dillon Pin Location Jaws Hold Deformation-Sensitive Parts
Dillon Manufacturing CNC mills its pin location jaws for air chucks to the highest possible workpiece location accuracy, better enabling them to hold thin-wall and deformation-sensitive parts.
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.
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.

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.
