PRODUCTS :: 53 Jaws Hold Workpieces to Maintain Accuracy Dillon Manufacturing's full grip jaws are available from 6" to 24" in diameter, with heights of 2", 4", and 6", and metric sizes from 140 mm to 630 mm in diameter. The jaws completely grip workpieces, holding them in place to maintain repetitive accuracy during high-speed machining operations. The jaws are available in 356-T6 cast aluminum for a lightweight solution that affords corrosion resistance and machinability; 6061 cast iron for a durable, long- lasting solution; or 1018 CR steel for a heat-treatable, weldable solution. According to the company, these pie jaws reduce distortion and provide more friction for drive during turning operations. The jaws can be used with applications such as valves, cylinders, specialty wheels and gears, housings and enclosures, adaptors and connectors, aluminum and steel shells, flanges, retainer rings and thin-walled parts. They are available to mount either manual or power chucks. :: Dillon Manufacturing Inc. 800-428-1133, Arbor with Quick-Change Capabilities Schunk's hydraulic expansion arbor with Vero-S module quick-change system, for customer-specific clamping solutions, is for high-precision applications in milling, hob- bing, turning, grinding, assembly, inspection and balancing.
