System provides alternative to pull cylindersApril, 20 2006
The Speed Block from Mitee-Bite is a manually operated clamping system, which allows the operator to tighten a clamp when the drive screw is not accessible.
The cam actuated piston moves a drive plate up and down, loosening and tightening the clamp screw. The Speed Block is primarily designed for use with Mitee-Bite’s ID Xpansion clamp, however any clamp that uses a straight draw can be used. Face plates and drive plates can be exchanged so different setups can be done on the same block. Speed Block is a simple and cost effective alternative to hydraulic or pneumatic pull cylinders.
