Soft Blank Top Jaws Boast Easy-Locating Features

May 20, 2016
Soft jaw blanks from Dillon Jaws feature a milled surface on the jaw end, opposite to the clamping surface, which serves as an easy-locating feature. This datum serves as a location point for positioning the counter-bored holes and the jaws’ serrations resulting in exact dimensional matching of Dillon jaw sets. These features reduce set-up times, aid concentric performance, provide better chuck balance, and have a longer jaw life because of the increased jaw accuracies. As a result of having established surfaces in relation to the jaw serrations, Dillon Chuck Jaws consistently perform as a standard workholding component for turned or bored parts.
