Tooling Converts Chucks for Quick-Change Capability

Nov. 11, 2020
System allows users to pre-assemble jaws required for the next operation while a machine is running a separate job, minimizing jaw change time.

DILLON MANUFACTURING INC. developed Fast-Trac Jaw Nuts to convert standard chucks into "quick change" chucks, reducing jaw change time by 50% or more. The proven system allows users to preassemble the jaws required for the next operation while the machine is running a separate job. This minimizes jaw change time while maximizing productivity and profitability. Quick-change capability allows more productivity per square foot of manufacturing space by productively using machining time — ideal for shops or plants operating with fewer employees due to social distancing requirements.

Dillon jaw nuts, T-nuts, and keys are available to fit all popular power chucks from 6 in. to 24 in. in diameter, including Forkhardt, Gamet, Howa, Kitigawa, Matsumoto (MMK), Nikko, Pratt Burnerd, Rohm, Samchully, Schuck, SMW, SMW-Autoblok, and more. 

Standard sizes are stocked for immediate shipment. They are especially well suite for workholding applications requiring durability and high strength, such as high-speed machining.

Dillon also offers special T-nut designs and manufacturing service for custom workhlolding requirements.

Dillon Manufacturing Inc. manufactures standard and custom workholding solutions, including chuck jaws, chucks, vises jaws, soft jaws, hard jaws, collet pad jaw systems, chuck lubrication, and more. Learn more at www.dillonmfg.com
