Ring Grips to Maximize Jaw Life

December 14, 2014

The jaw forming ring from Dillion Jaws & Chucks, Dayton, Ohio, provides a uniform grip on the workpiece to maximize jaw life for cutting and forming operations.

Mounted in direct contact with the top jaw, the Dillon jaw forming ring preloads the chucking system.  The ring lessens jaw stock removal required during parts setup and increases up-times for running machined parts. Jaw forming rings are available for power chucks ranging from 5 to 12 in. They are capable of a wide range of jaw formations and feature a self-centering action to provide equal pressure on all jaws.
