Product Details Supplier Info More products

Mitee-Bite workpiece clamping products are the latest additions to the portfolio of workholding and manufacturing productivity equipment available from 1st Machine Tool Accessories (1st MTA).

Most items in the Mitee-Bite range utilise a cam or wedge action and are operated by tightening a cap head screw.

They also complement the Chick, Abbott, Leave and OK-Vise ranges of workholding equipment already available from 1st MTA.

Principal Mitee-Bite products include cam-action fixture clamps; compact Uniforce clamps; Pitbull clamps; low-profile Series-9 clamps; and ID Xpansion clamping equipment.

Capable of producing gripping forces of up to 6,000lbf, Mitee-Bite cam-action fixture clamps consist of a hardened steel socket screw with offset head and hexagonal washer.

These quick-action units can also be supplied in stainless steel or with machinable mild steel washers for irregular components or other special purpose clamping applications.

Uniforce clamps incorporate a purpose-designed steel wedge, which spreads the gripping forces uniformly on each side of the unit to produce a bi-directional clamping action that enables the maximum number of workpieces to be nested on the machine table.

Extended length variants are also available, with machinable jaws that can be profiled to individual requirements.

Mitee-Bite Pitbull clamps are characterised by their low profile and powerful pull-down action.

They are produced in five sizes and a variety of styles, as well as two new modular versions.

The compact modular type is ideal for clamping workpieces in series, by using the rear of one clamp to locate the next component, while the slotted modular version provides increased versatility by supporting components clear of the machine base for through milling or drilling operations.

Both types are suitable for use with Chick foundation plates or faceplates and are produced in two sizes, with holding forces of 3,000 and 6,000lbf.

Series-9 clamps deliver adjustable, low-profile clamping for different sized workpieces – simply by rotating the hexagonal units to one of their other clamping edges.

Fast and effective in use, they are available with smooth or serrated edges and generate clamping forces of up to 4,000lbf.

ID Xpansion clamps have been developed to grip parts on their internal diameter for HMC or VMC machining operations.

Produced in 11 sizes to suit components with bores from less than 3/16 in (6.4mm) to more than 7in (178mm), these machinable units are particularly suitable for second operation work and palletised set-ups.

They are also complemented by Side-Loc variants, which are actuated by a socket head located on the side of the unit, rather than by the standard product’s central screw.

Further Mitee-Bite products available from 1st MTA include multi-fixture stops and locating rails, knife edge clamps, toe clamps and Speedblock – a compact, manually operated system for applications where access may be restricted by workpiece dimensions.
