Dillon Manufacturing offers premium standard and custom chuck jaws, collet chucks and workholding accessories at an affordable price. Our team is devoted to providing you with high-quality products for your unique applications.
Collets vs. Chucks
Although collets are a form of chuck and they both hold workpieces or tools in place, there are a few differentiating factors for collets that set them apart. Chucks have great gripping capacities and positive length, while collets allow for improved precision and firmness, especially with unusually shaped parts.
One of the most significant differences between collets and standard chucks is diameter range. Typically, standard chucks are used for larger work pieces and collet chucks are used for smaller, delicate and oddly shaped parts. Collets form a collar around the workholding part and increase clamping pressure, self-centering, fast chucking and overall resistance against slack.
Advantages of Collet Chucks
At Dillon Manufacturing, we understand the importance of efficiency and productivity throughout your company and processes. This is why our collet chucks are the best solution to refine and maximize your operations.
There are many benefits to our collet chucks including:
- Faster change-over with shorter cycle times, perfect for operations running more than one job
- High rigidity for a steadier gripping range, especially with heavier cuts
- Reduced maintenance
