Mitee-Bite introduces a new style clamp to its range of ID Xpansion
clamps, the SIDE-LOC Xpansion clamp which is an ideal way to hold parts on the bore when you can not access
the tapered screw. The SIDE-LOC Xpansion clamp is actuated by turning a socket head cam, on the side, which moves
a tapered plunger to expand the clamp. The locking ring provides accurate preset diameter and rigidity for
machining. Like our original ID Xpansion clamps, the SIDE-LOC Xpansion clamp has the dead length feature which is
critical for close tolerance dimensions. The SIDE-LOC Xpansion clamp is designed in two styles, one for milling
operations and one for lathe applications.
Presently one size is available for each model. The mill
SIDE-LOC Xpansion clamp can be machined from 1.120 to .710 and the lathe version from 2.09 to .710. The lathe
version has a straight mounting shank of 1”.
