Dillon Manufacturing introduces full grip jaws made of 1018 CR steel from 6 inches to 15 inches in diameter, with heights of 2, 4, and 6 inches. These heat treatable and weldable steel jaws allow for complete gripping of the work piece to maintain repetitive accuracy. This type of jaw reduces distortion and provides more friction for drive during turning operations.
With close tolerances and concentricity easily maintained, they are ideal for applications such as valves, cylinders, specialty wheels and gears, housings and enclosures, adaptors and connectors, aluminum and steel shells, flanges, retainer rings, and other thin-walled parts such as automotive smog control air pump rotors, gas turbine parts, thin-wall tubing and cylinder liners for diesel engines and more.
Dillon full grip steel top jaws typically ship within 1 week (maximum) from order. In addition to 1018 CR steel, other materials are available upon request.

Workpiece is held in a chuck, mounted on a face plate or secured between centers and rotated while a cutting tool, normally a single-point tool, is fed into it along its periphery or across its end or face. Takes the form of straight turning (cutting along the periphery of the workpiece); taper turning (creating a taper); step turning (turning different-size diameters on the same work); chamfering (beveling an edge or shoulder); facing (cutting on an end); turning threads (usually external but can be internal); roughing (high-volume metal removal); and finishing (final light cuts). Performed on lathes, turning centers, chucking machines, automatic screw machines and similar machines.
