Extruded Aluminum Pie Jaws

Dillon Manufacturing pie jaws made from 6061 extruded aluminum are now available up to 28" in diameter and are stronger than cast aluminum jaws, according to the company.

"Because they are machined from aluminum bar stock, these new large diameter full grip pie jaws have none of the porosity inherent with castings, so they are stronger, more reliable and safer than cast aluminum," said a company spokesperson. "They can also be made in diameters larger than the chuck, thus increasing the chuck's capacity. Maximum contact area from the full grip jaws provides a solid gripping surface, which yields more friction for drive with reduced part distortion." Custom designs are available with special heights, diameters, and configurations, including a matching serration location that is exactly perpendicular to the slots.

Dillon full-grip chuck jaws are made in the USA with quick lead times, typically two weeks or less. They are suitable for high-speed machining, precision boring, tapping, drilling and finishing across industrial markets. In addition to 6061 extruded aluminum, Dillon Full Grip Pie Jaws are available in brass, 1018 steel and cast iron.

These wrap-around type top jaws distribute more of the gripping pressure across the workpiece, reducing part distortion. Dillon standard and custom full-grip jaws are available in 1.5 mm x 60°, 3.0 mm x 60°, 1/16 x 90° or 3/32 x 90° serrations, American standard or tongue and groove, Acme and square serrated key type mounting interfaces.
