Roush Yates Engines has announced a multi-year extension with Mitee-Bite Products, a supplier of high-density low profile clamping solutions. The official partnership started in 2015, but the relationship has been in place since 2003.
“The entire family at Mitee-Bite has been a great partner to us in providing world-class clamping tools, fixtures and solutions to solve our clamping challenges. They understand how critical it is to have machined parts made within precise tolerances. Their ability to produce and fixture quick prototypes as well as higher production runs is essential to our success,” said Todd English, Roush Yates Engines, vice president Business Development.
“Mitee-Bite makes a generous amount of clamping solutions for all types of shops. Their experienced team will help design and manufacture any regular, irregular or challenging part in the work holding arena,” commented Tom Bashford, Roush Yates Engines, R&D Rapid Prototype Manager & Machinist.
“Mitee-Bite’s Loc-Down System works great for holding fixtures to sub plates. The Pitbull clamps are great for many applications and I rely on Id Xpansion clamps for securely holding parts with bores on them,” noted Ricky Strader, Roush Yates Engines, Manufacturing Engineer.
Roush Yates Manufacturing Solutions, a division of Roush Yates Engines in Mooresville, NC relies heavily on Mitee-Bites’ quality clamping devices. Over 50 CNC machines utilize Mitee-Bite products to assist in machining hundreds of engine components for the Ford FR9 EFI V8 NASCAR engine, the twin-turbo Ford EcoBoost V6 race engine and the Roush Yates RY45 engine.
