Precision-ground collet pads provide tight tolerances for workpieces, with full contact across the gripping surface for greater holding power. When combined with Carbinite coating, Dillon collet pad top jaws allow more aggressive machining that yields shorter cycle times. Round smooth, round serrated, hex smooth, and square smooth sizes are available for W&S (all sizes), S-style (all sizes), Gisholt, Jones & Lamson, and Martin collet pad types, allowing more varied geometries that can be securely gripped. The ability to quickly change between sizes allows shops to expand their machining capabilities, increase their machine cycles by up to 30 percent, and maximize production. Emergency collet pads that machine like top jaws are stocked for custom workpiece applications. Dillon collet pads and jaws are ideal for precision boring, high-speed machining, tapping, drilling, and finishing. They are especially suited for small-diameter 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.
Systems that can convert thru-hole chucks to hold small bar and tube stock are available. Changing over to collet pad jaws is easily accomplished in just minutes with simply a jaw change, which is much faster and easier than changeover of entire chucks. The use of collet pad jaws allows users to maximize their chuck capabilities and more fully amortize their chuck investment by performing both chuck and collet pad projects.
