Dillon Manufacturing’s full grip jaws are available from 6” to 24” in diameter, with heights of 2, 4, and 6”, and metric sizes from 140 mm to 630 mm in diameter. The jaws completely grip workpieces, holding them in place to maintain repetitive accuracy during high-speed machining operations, the company says. 

The jaws are available in 356-T6 cast aluminum for a lightweight solution that affords corrosion resistance and machinability; 6061 cast iron for a durable, long-lasting solution; or 1018 CR steel for a heat-treatable, weldable solution. According to the company, these pie jaws reduce distortion and provide more friction for drive during turning operations.

The jaws can be used with applications such as valves, cylinders, specialty wheels and gears, housings and enclosures, adaptors and connectors, aluminum and steel shells, flanges, retainer rings, and thin-walled parts such as automotive smog control air pump rotors, gas turbine parts, thin-wall tubing and cylinder liners for diesel engines. They are available to mount either manual or power chucks.

  • 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.

  • Too Small To Touch

    Hummingbird takes on machining work that is too small for most shops to handle. In fact, Hummingbird tries not to handle it either. To accurately machine the tiniest parts, this shop relies on processes that are as hands-off as possible.

    As demonstrated at this Cincinnati-area shop, machines that both mill and turn shine brightest when workpieces are massive.
