Fast-Trac jaw nuts from Dillon Manufacturing Inc. (Springfield, OH) maximize productivity and profitability by converting standard chucks into quick-change chucks. By reducing jaw change time by at least 50%, they enable users to preassemble the jaws required for the next operation while the machine is running a separate job.
Dillon jaw nuts, t-nuts, and keys fit all popular power chucks from 6 inches to 24 inches in diameter including Forkhardt, Gamet, Howa, Kitigawa, Matsumoto (MMK), Nikko, Pratt Burnerd, Rohm, Samchully, Schuck, SMW, and SMW-Autoblok. Standard sizes are stocked for immediate shipment. They’re ideal for workholding applications requiring durability and high strength such as high-speed machining.
The company also offers special T-nut designs and manufacturing service for custom workholding requirements.
