Dillon jaw nuts

Dillon Manufacturing’s Fast-Trac jaw nuts convert standard chucks into quick-change chucks, reducing jaw change time by 50% or more, according to the company. This system enables users to preassemble the jaws required for the next operation while the machine is running a separate job. Quick-change capability allows for more productivity per square foot of manufacturing space by productively using machining time, which is ideal for facilities operating with fewer employees due to social distancing requirements, the company says.

Dillon’s jaw nuts, T nuts and keys are available to fit all 6” to 24” diameter power chucks from Forkhardt, Gamet, Howa, Kitigawa, Matsumoto (MMK), Nikko, Pratt Burnerd, Rohm, Samchully, Schunk, SMW, SMW Autoblok and more.
