Soft jaw blanks from Dillon Jaws feature a milled surface on the jaw end, providing an established surface aiding in positive serration alignment with the front edge of the jaw. This datum serves as a location point for positioning the counterbored holes and the jaws’ serrations, helping to achieve dimensional matching of jaw sets. These features reduce setup times, aid concentric performance and provide better chuck balance. Additionally, the increased jaw accuracies improve jaw life, according to the company. With established surfaces in relation to the jaw serrations, the chuck jaws perform as a standard workholding component for turned or bored parts. The company supplies them in standard sizes.

The company offers a full suite of jaws to complete its workholding line, including soft jaws, hard jaws, full grip jaws, collet pad jaws, vise jaws and custom jaws for high-speed machining, precision boring, tapping, drilling and finishing across many industrial markets.
