For over 70 years, the Dillon family has been in the force measurement and scale business.Our founder, W. C. Dillon (Willie), led the design and manufacturing of Dillon Dynamometers and force gauges. His example of diligence and perseverance began in the horse and buggy days and was passed down through his family today. One of the best known of the Dillon precision products is the Dillon Dynamometer, an instrument used to measure tension and weight.
As a young man supervising the installation of telephone lines across Cherokee country, Willie realized the need for an instrument that would indicate the amount of tension placed in wires. This new instrument would prevent wires from being over-stressed or too loose. His response to this need led to the development of the first Traction Dynamometer in the early 1930s.
Willie’s innovation didn’t stop there. Throughout the years, he continued to deliver Dillon precision products to meet the needs of public utilities, nuclear facilities, tower erectors, armed services, and material handlers throughout the world. That determination and dedication is alive today with quality sales, service, and repair from Dillon/Quality Plus, Inc.
Although the Dillon Dynamometer was not the first invention of Willie Dillon, it has certainly been one of the strongest and most versatile Dillon precision products on the market. Based on the standards of extreme engineering and real world punishment, Dillon products of today are known for:
