Collet pads and collet pad jaws from Dillon Chucks & Jaws allow quick changeover for machinists working with small-diameter parts such as stems, spools, crimp assemblies, manifolds for high-pressure air systems, medical parts, miscellaneous fittings, mechanical and transmission components, and specialty valves.
The jaws can be adapted to many styles of chucks. Metal-to-metal fits maintain accuracy. A collet pad top jaw system increases a chuck's workholding capabilities, allowing more varied part geometries to be machined with the same jaw system.
S-type and Warner & Swasey-type collet pads are available in round, hex, and square shapes with smooth and serrated gripping surfaces.
