Dillon Jaw Forming RingClick image to enlarge

The Dillon jaw forming ring is an easy-to-use tool that provides a more uniform grip on the workpiece, according to the company.

A more uniform grip maximizes jaw life for cutting and forming operations. Mounted in direct contact with the top jaw, the Dillon jaw forming ring preloads the chucking system Lessening the amount of jaw stock removal required during parts set-up maximizes jaw life for requalifying or reforming. Use of the device will provide a jaw surface true to the machine centerline, reduce set-up times, and increase up-times for running machined parts. Dillon jaws support a wide variety of industries including aerospace, agriculture, automotive, consumers, coal, oil and gas, construction, machine tools, mining, paper, rail and wind energy.

Jaw forming rings are available for 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 15 power chucks. They are capable of a wide range of OD and ID jaw formation. Self-centering action provides equal pressure on all jaws. The jaw forming ring is the only tool of its kind to compensate for jaw lift, even in worn chucks, which results in better parts concentricity.
