Dillon Introduces High Performance Jaw Nuts and Keys
Press release date: January 29, 2014
Springfield, OH – Manufactured from 4140 heat treated steel, Dillon Jaw Nuts and Keys provide superior wear resistance, impact resistance, higher tensile strength, and extended jaw nut life which significantly outperforms jaws made from case hardened 1018 steel. 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, Schuck, SMW, SMW-Autoblok, and more. Dillon 4140 jaw nuts and keys are ideal for workholding applications requiring durability and high strength such as high speed machining.
Customers purchasing an extra set of jaw nuts can convert a chuck into a quick-change-chuck. With a spare set, jaw change time can be reduced 60% because the chuck can be preassembled for the next operation while machining the current one. This operational efficiency can be achieved at a fraction of the cost of a Quick-change chuck.
Dillon also offers a special T-Nut design and manufacturing service for custom workhlolding requirements.
