High Performance Jaw Nuts and Keys Improve Chuck Safety, Accuracy

With the advancement of machine tool technology - including greater horsepower, larger material cuts and higher machine tool speeds - the stress and mechanical forces upon jaw nuts and T-nuts used within these operating conditions have increased.

"Jaws nuts and keys made from case hardened 1018 CRS can fracture, crack and break under high speed machine stress loads, causing damaged workpieces and chucks and endangering operators," said a Dillon Manufacturing spokesperson. "Manufactured from 4140 heat treated steel, Dillon jaw nuts and keys provide enhanced wear resistance, impact resistance, higher tensile strength and extended jaw nut life. Operator safety and chuck life are improved by eliminating the use of low carbon jaws nuts and T-nuts in the machining process."

Dillon jaw nuts, T-nuts and keys are available to fit all popular power chucks from 6" in diameter to 24" in diameter, including Forkhardt, Gamet, Howa, Kitigawa, Matsumoto (MMK), Nikko, Pratt Burnerd, Rohm, Samchully, Schunk, SMW, SMW-Autoblok and more. Standard sizes are stocked for immediate shipment. They are designed for workholding applications requiring durability and high strength, such as high speed machining.

Dillon also offers a special T-nut design and manufacturing service for custom workholding requirements.
