The X-Plate system from Mitee-Bite Products is a versatile modular fixturing platform for three-, four- and five-axis applications. The “X” refers to the product’s 10 possible configurations. The X-Plate can be mounted in a vise with repeatable positional accuracy, T-slot tables or grid plates. Additionally, the platform can be used with a multi-functional face plate for indexers and five-axis machining centers. The X-Plate can be configured as modular fixturing in custom slots, a quick-change receiver for plates, mini tombstones and longer trunnions. It also accepts Raptor dovetail components and the Piranha zero-point base.

  • Pins: The Alternative To Parallels

    These vise jaws use protruding, mechanical pins to repeatedly support workpieces either horizontally or at angles. They are said to allow quicker setups than conventional parallels.

  • Holding Small Parts for Effective Machining on a CNC Router

    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.
