Dillon Manufacturing is now producing large-diameter (up to 24") full-grip jaws from 1018 CRS, 6061 Aluminum and Dura-Bar cast iron. Extended height for the full grip jaws ranges up to 8" for diameters up to 18", with heights ranging to 6" for diameters between 21" and 24". Manufactured in ISO 9001:2015-certified facilities, these jaws are quickly produced and ship in under a week, providing high quality and short lead times. All sizes are in stock or have a short delivery time, the company says.
Special full grip pie jaws are available (for example, in extra heights or diameters) with a one-week lead time. Dillon full-grip top jaws feature corrosion resistance, with very good machining and welding characteristics, according to the manufacturer.
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.
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.
As demonstrated at this Cincinnati-area shop, machines that both mill and turn shine brightest when workpieces are massive.
