Fast-Trac jaw nuts, from Dillon Manufacturing Inc., convert standard chucks into quick-change chucks, reducing jaw change-over time by 50 percent or more, according to the company. This system enables users to preassemble the next operation’s jaws while the machine is running a separate job, thus minimizing jaw change-over time and maximizing productivity and profitability.

The company’s jaw nuts, T-nuts and keys all fit power chucks ranging in size from 6"  to 24" in diameter from companies including Forkhardt, Gamet, Howa, Kitigawa, Matsumoto (MMK), Nikko, Pratt Burnerd, Rohm, Samchully, Schunk, SMW, SMW-Autoblok and more. The company also offers a special T-nut design and manufacturing services for custom workholding requirements. The jaw nuts are ideal for applications that require durability and high strength, such as high-speed machining.

  • 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.
