Pin Location Jaws for Air Chucks Hold Sensitive Parts without Deformation

Dillon Manufacturing, Inc., a leading manufacturer of hard and soft jaws for workholding applications, presents their pin location jaws which firmly yet safely grip deformation-prone parts. Ideal for thin-walled components, tubing-type products, and other sensitive workpieces.

Dillon manufactures full grip (pie) blank jaws and soft jaws for Northfield®, Microcentric® and others. Each is CNC milled to provide maximum accuracy for workpiece location, enabling air chucks to hold sensitive workpieces firmly. Standard sizes available, or experience applications engineers can prepare proposals for custom jaws at no charge.
