Low Profile Workholding Solution

CARVEsmart, a division of Bellatex Industries and maker of the original quick-change vise jaw system featuring dovetailed jaw technology, is teaming up with Mitee-Bite Products LLC to offer a low profile workholding solution for vise jaw applications.

CARVEsmart has developed Mitee-Bite-authorized TalonTop dovetailed jaws that are TalonGrip ready. The TalonTop jaws are machined to accept Mitee Bite's TalonGrip Grippers, which will edge grip as little as 0.060" of material. CARVEsmart provides pairs of 1018 cold rolled steel 6" and 8" TALONtop dovetailed jaws with SMARTstop pins and 10-32 set screws included. The 8" pairs extend a 6" vise to 8" clamping width.

The TalonTop dovetailed jaws are sold by CARVEsmart. The recommended Mitee-Bite #32050 TalonGrip Gripper and #32020 stops are sold separately through Mitee-Bite distributors.

"The combined technologies give the user another quick change edge gripping choice and further expands our accessory options," said Doug Fontaine, National Sales Manager for CARVEsmart. "It is an honor to be affiliated with the innovator of compact, low-profile edge clamps that provides solutions for difficult workholding applications."

Michael McCarthy, Mitee-Bite Products National Sales Manager, added, "As we began to build the relationship with CARVEsmart, it became evident that our two companies share the same goals for our customers - do a better job faster. Users will be impressed with the simplified jaw changes and versatility CARVEsmart provides while taking advantage of the high spindle speeds and feeds that our TalonGrip Grippers make possible."

The patented CARVEsmart system, combined with the Mitee-Bite technology, is designed for low profile gripping in production and toolroom applications. Dovetailed jaw changes are engineered to be fast and easy with the "from the top" clamping system.

The clamp assembly pulls dovetailed jaws tightly into two axes while a SMARTstop pin locates the jaw accurately in the third axis with +/-0.0003" relocation. The SMARTstop slot and pin is internal to the dovetail, allowing vises to be mounted side-by-side.

Extruded aluminum dovetailed jaw stock is available in five profiles in lengths up to 94". It can be cut to any length the user requires. Steel options are 60/62 RC hardened tool steel, 48/50 RC A2 machineable tool steel and 1018 steel. Specialty jaws are also available.
