So you have a blind hole application? The Mitee-Bite Side-Loc Xpansion Clamp has you covered by actuating from the side. It’s produced for both mill and lathe applications. A cam shaft and plunger expands the clamp from the side all with the same mounting dimensions as the original ID clamp.
The Side-Loc Xpansion Clamp is actuated by turning a socket head cam shaft on the side, which moves a tapered plunger to expand the clamp. The locking ring provides an accurate preset diameter and rigidity for machining to a custom diameter or profile. Do not exceed the maximum torque of 13 N.m. on the locking ring.
Like the 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 comes in two styles: one for milling operations and one for lathe applications. One size is available for each model. The mill Side-Loc Xpansion Clamp can be machined from 28.4 to 18mm and the lathe version from 53 to 18mm. The lathe version has a 25mm straight shank.
