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.

  • A Study Of The Steady Rest

    When the length and stiffness of a workpiece make it difficult to machine without distorting or deflecting the part, many manufacturers turn to the steady rest as a workpiece support device. This is especially true for long axles, shafts and similar parts used in automotive or heavy equipment applications, and in oil drilling components. The most common application is to support a workpiece during turning or milling and, increasingly, during secondary operations such as ID drilling, boring and producing end face bolthole patterns.
