Mitee-Bite Products LLC has introduced the Loc-Down System. This is a simple way of quickly attaching and removing plates or workpieces from a sub-plate and is best described as a "headless bolt" with a simple ball-locking mechanism. The System saves the time required to completely remove a bolt with minimal tooling interference.
Primarily designed to quickly locate and secure large aerospace parts for high speed machining, it can be implemented into many designs that previously required a standard bolt. The Loc-Down also develops 100 ft/lbs for every pound of torque.
