Dillon Manufacturing (Springfield, OH) introduces pie jaws made from 6061 extruded aluminum now available up to 28-inches in diameter. Machined from aluminum bar stock, these new large diameter full grip pie jaws are stronger and more reliable than cast aluminum, with none of the inherent porosity. Specifically:
- Jaw heights of up to 10-inches are available.
- They can also be made in diameters larger than the chuck, thus increasing the chucks capacity.
- Maximum contact area from the full grip jaws provides a solid gripping surface which yields more friction for drive with reduced part distortion.
- Custom designs are available with special heights, diameters, and configurations, including a matching serration location which is exactly perpendicular to the slots.
Dillon full-grip chuck jaws are made in the USA with industry-leading lead-times, typically two weeks or less. They are ideal for high-speed machining, as well as precision boring, tapping, drilling, and finishing across virtually all industrial markets.
