Fast-Trac Jaw Nuts and Custom Full-Grip Jaws

Dillon Manufacturing offers its Fast-Trac Jaw Nuts as well as custom full-grip jaws.

Fast-Trac Jaw Nuts

Fast-Trac Jaw Nuts convert standard chucks into quick change chucks, reducing jaw change time by 50% or more. This system allows users to preassemble the jaws required for the next operation while the machine is running a separate job. This minimizes jaw change time while maximizing productivity and profitability. Quick change capability allows more productivity per square foot of manufacturing space by productively using machining time, which is suitable for facilities operating with fewer employees due to social distancing requirements.

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, Kitagawa, Matsumoto (MMK), Nikko, Pratt Burnerd, Rohm, Samchully, Schunk, SMW, SMW-Autoblok and more. Standard sizes are stocked for immediate shipment. They are suitable for workholding applications requiring durability and high strength such as high-speed machining.

Dillon also offers special T-Nut designs and manufacturing service for custom workholding requirements.

Custom Full-Grip Jaws

Dillon Manufacturing offers custom full-grip jaws with special heights, diameters, materials and configuration to securely grip any workpiece. "They can provide a matching serration location that is exactly perpendicular to the slots, and a solid gripping surface to provide more friction for drive with reduced distortion," said a company spokesperson. "In addition, these special pie jaws can reduce and simplify set-up times, enhancing project profitability. Custom full-grip chuck jaws are made in the USA with industry-leading lead times."

They are available in A356 aluminum, 6061 aluminum, 1018 steel and cast iron. This latest workholding introduction complements Dillon's broad line of standard full-grip pie jaws, making them suitable for high speed machining, as well as precision boring, tapping, drilling and finishing across virtually all industrial markets.

These wrap-around type top jaws distribute more of the gripping pressure across the workpiece, reducing part distortion. Dillon custom full-grip jaws are available in serrated, tongue & groove serrated, Acme serrated and square serrated designs. Additional information on standard or special full-grip jaws is available at
