Dillon Fast-Trac jaw nuts are designed to convert standard chucks into quick-change chucks, reducing jaw change time by as much as half. This system is said to enable users to pre-assemble the next operation jaws while the machine is running a separate job, thus minimizing jaw change time and maximizing productivity and profitability.

Dillon jaw nuts, T nuts and keys are available to fit all popular power chucks from 6" to 24" in diameter, including Forkhardt, Gamet, Howa, Kitigawa, Matsumoto (MMK), Nikko, Pratt Burnerd, Röhm, Samchully, Schunck, SMW and more. They are ideal for workholding applications requiring durability and high strength such as high-speed machining, according to the company. Dillon also offers a special T-nut design and manufacturing service for custom workholding requirements.
