Dillon's Full Chuck Line Meets Many Workholding Needs
Dillon Manufacturing offers a full line of chucks to meet manufacturers’ needs for a variety of workholding applications.
Dillon Manufacturing’s full line of chucks provides solutions for various workholding applications.
Application chucks such as the 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, which are sealed to prevent chips and coolant from entering the chuck body, pull the workpiece down to location for superior accuracy, especially on parallel and perpendicular surfaces. Auto-indexing chucks, with positions of 4 x 90 degrees or 8 x 45 degrees, machine multiple surfaces in a single clamping. Retractable jaw shaft chucks, which machine shafts in a single clamping operation, allow jaw and face driver changes to machine 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 produces their chucks in the USA in ISO 9001:2015 registered facilities.
Don't assume the standard chuck is the right workholding for every lathe application.
When the length and stiffness of a workpiece make it difficult to machine, many turn to the steady rest.
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.
