Mitee-Bite’s X-Plate system is a modular fixturing platform for three-, four- and five-axis machining applications. Among the mounting options the system enables is a precision quick-change configuration when clamped in a vise or T-slot table. In addition to functioning as a face plate for indexers and five-axis machining centers, the system includes a provision on the bottom enabling Mitee-Bite diamond/taper locating pins to mount to the sub-plate.

    A non-woven porous material with a special coating enables vacuum chucks and tables to hold sheets of metal and other materials more effectively on CNC routing machines. The material, called Vilmill, is used as a substrate between the sheet or plate material to be machined and a suitable vacuum table or vacuum chuck where it is held securely in place by the vacuum.
