Individual jaws for self-centering scroll chucks are made with bases that reflect their unique angular position on the scroll. In other words, each jaw of a three jaw chuck is unique. These jaws are often numbered, and must be installed in order on the chuck.
Some jaws are made in sections, a master jaw and a top jaw.
Jaws can be used to grip work in a variety of ways. They can grip toward or away from the spindle axis. Here, a chuck is gripping on the exterior of the work.
Chuck jaws can also be used to hold ring-shaped work by gripping outwardly.
Reverse chuck jaws can be used to grip on the exterior of a workpiece with the step features.
Soft jaws are chuck jaws that are designed to be machined to fit odd-shaped workpieces that would be difficult to fixture.
