Dillon Collet Pad Jaws
Collet pads and collet pad jaws from Dillon Chucks & Jaws are specially designed, quick-change tooling for machining small diameter parts.
Collet pads can be changed quickly maximizing production time, and the jaws can be adapted to many styles of chucks – making them ideal for machining of stems, spools, crimp assemblies, manifolds for high pressure air systems, medical parts, miscellaneous fittings, mechanical and transmission components and specialty valves, and more. Metal-to-metal fits maintain accuracy.
A collet pad top jaw system increase a chuck’s range of workholding capabilities, allowing more varied part geometries to be machined with the same jaw system. With optimized collet pad jaws and collets, machining routines can be more aggressive, resulting in shorter cycle times and more consistent quality output as well.
Changing over to collet pad jaws is easily accomplished and requires just a jaw change. The time required to change jaws and collets is generally accomplished in a few minutes and is much quicker than changing entire chucks which may take as long as several hours to complete the changeover. Machinists using collet pad jaws are able to maximize their chuck capabilities and investment by taking advantage of both chuck and collet pad work including the ability to run material that is hex or square in shape.
Dillon Manufacturing, Inc. offers a complete line of both S-Type and Warner & Swasey type collet pads. Collet pad shapes include round, hex, and square with both smooth and serrated gripping surfaces available. The line also includes collet pad top jaws and W&S solid emergency collet pads.
All Dillon Manufacturing products are Made in the USA.
