Mitee-Bite Products releases the new Modular XYZ Xpansion™ Pins for Tombstone, Grid Plate and Fixture Plate applications. The unique, patent pending design provides accurate location, repeatability and high holding forces for securing parts on the inside diameter. The XYZ Pin provides “out of the way workholding” and accessibility to all work surfaces with absolutely no external clamping interference. The Threaded Pin is available in standard sizes of 1/2, 5/8, M12 and M16 for tombstones and grid plates. The Press Fit Pins are available in 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, 5/8, M6, M10, M12 and M16 diameters for custom applications. Both styles of the pins are manufactured from “heat treatable” 17-4PH stainless steel. The Press Fit Pins are now also available in 12L14 mild steel. The Pins expand up to 0.030″ (0.7mm) and the diameter can be machined for specific applications. The top of the Pins have a slight taper creating maximum line contact in bore and provides clearance during load/unload. Designed for quick set-ups on secondary operations, material coming off prep stations, water-jets or even applications outside of your machining centers!
Press Fit Installation
Place Pin in prepared bore, place I/R Tool over pin as shown. Using the smaller socket head cap screw (SHCS) provided, thread into fixture to evenly draw down pin. Remove SHCS and replace with Tapered screw when ready to use..
Press Fit Removal
Place the I/R Tool over the clamp as shown.Thread the larger SHCS into the “internal threads” of the Pin and tighten the screw to extract the Pin.
Note: It is recommended to fit Pin with a drill bushing when the Pin must be frequently removed. Or drill and ream the bore hole over the nominal diameter minimum of +0.0001 to +0.0005″ (+0.003 to +0.013mm)
