"You're never too sure how strong workholding is until you use it and push it to the limits. We've dedicated machines to Mitee-Bite workholding systems, because the product is that good. The VM300 System allows us to cut down machine time, take on thinner application work, hold multiple part fixtures.

Kyle Henecke, Ingleside Machine Co., Inc.
