The Dillon jaw-forming ring is designed to be an easy-to-use tool providing a more uniform grip on the workpiece, maximizing jaw life for cutting and forming operations. Mounted in direct contact with the top jaw, the jaw-forming ring preloads the chucking system. Jaw life for requalifying or reforming is maximized by reducing the amount of jaw stock removal required during part setup. The device provides a jaw surface that is true to the machine centerline, reduces setup times and increases uptimes. The jaws support a variety of industries including aerospace, agriculture, automotive, consumer goods, coal, oil and gas, construction, machine tools, mining, paper, rail and wind energy.

Jaw-forming rings are available for 4", 5", 6", 8", 10", 12" and 15" power chucks. They are capable of a range of outer- and inner-diameter jaw formation. Self-centering action provides equal pressure on all jaws. The ring compensates for “jaw lift,” even in worn chucks, for better part concentricity.
