Full grip aluminum pie jaws now available to 28-in. diameter
- November 23, 2021
Dillon Manufacturing has introduced pie jaws made from 6061 extruded aluminum that are now available up to 28 in. in diameter.
These new large diameter full grip pie jaws are machined from aluminum bar stock, which enhances strength and reliability over cast aluminum, with none of the inherent porosity.
Jaw heights of up to 10 in. are available, and they can be made in diameters larger than the chuck, increasing chuck capacity. The maximized contact area provided by 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 with lead times typically of 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. In addition to 6061 extruded aluminum, Dillon Full Grip Pie Jaws are available in brass, 1018 steel, and cast iron.
