A major facilities upgrade now enables Dillon Chuck Jaws to add the manufacture of serrations of 2 mm × 60 degrees and 2.5 mm × 60 degrees for hard-to-find top jaws, hard jaws and full grip jaws that fit the corresponding chuck master jaws of the same hard-to-locate pitch. The company says it can now make virtually any serration, including 1.5 mm × 60 degrees, 2 mm × 60 degrees, 2.5 mm × 60 degrees, 3 mm × 60 degrees, 1/16" × 90 degrees, 3/32" × 90 degrees and more.

These added capabilities extend Dillon’s ability to ensure that customers receive the appropriate workholding products for their specific applications, the company says.

  • 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.

  • Small Engine Precision Fuels Fifth-Axis Production Concept

    The challenge holding tight tolerances for its billet RC helicopter engine components drove this company to develop an innovative fifth-axis tombstone device to complete multiple parts on an HMC in one setup.
