We have just released the NEW 2018-2019 Masa Tool Catalog! Our first batch of new catalogs is shipping directly to our IMTS booth in Chicago for release, but you can download your own copy right here!
The Microconic system will be able to do things that are impossible
Our regular MicroconicTM collets help reduce cycle time by allowing a rm grip on the workpiece without causing damage, and yet holding it much more rigidly than any other collet on the market.
You’ll be able to do heavy machining operations in the sub spindle, such as blind hole broaching, that would not have even considered in the past. Now you can switch ops from main to sub!
Set ups are quicker and more repeatable with Microconic.
You can document the micrometer-adjust collet closure in your set up plan using our Micrograd Face Dial Wrench and it’s going to repeat to the same clamping pressure each and every time, regardless of operator skill and without relying on “feel”.
You can calibrate your spindle accuracy with the MicroconicTM cartridge by using it as a precision cylinder gauge.
When that is good, EVERY Microconic collet will run within .0002” TIR: There’s no ddling and swapping collet after collet looking for a “good” one. Set ups go smoothly and predictably.
The Microconic collets fit into our cartridge to hold the workpiece with great precision and rigidity. Unlike traditional extended nose collets our unique design and closing action is inherently more accurate and consistent.
The clamping force is directly over the workpiece at the end of the collet. The origin of the word “Microconic”, alludes to the precise way in which the collet closing taper is formed to cancel the effects of heat treat warp and grind tolerances. As a result, it provides industry- best concentricity every time.

The Microconic™ work holding system is a mechanically actuated micro-workholding system for use in high precision, small diameter CNC turning applications.
The system consists of two major components: The Microconic™ cartridge, replaces the standard TF20 collets and fits into your CNC machine with no modifications to the spindle required. The second component to the system is the Microconic™ collets which have capacities of 0,22mm - 10,00mm ( 0.0086" - 0.3949") and -Over-Grip collets which can open up to 4mm over the chucking diameter and run within 5 µm/.0002" TIR
It's the first and only workholding system for the micro-machining industry.
The Masa Microconic system consists of the cartridge, which fits into your machine like a standard collet, and the Microconic collets which fit into the cartridge. The Microconic system provides:
Masa Tool created the The Microconic™ workholding system which is a mechanically actuated micro-workholding system for use in high precision, small diameter CNC turning applications. Masa Tool developed the Microconic™ system specifically for holding workpieces from Ø0.15mm to 10mm (Ø0.006" to 0.390") in any machine that has a collet-type chuck. The system consists of two major components: The Microconic™ cartridge, which transforms the work spindle for miniature workholding, and the “right-sized” Microconic collet, which fits in the cartridge.
- Unsurpassed concentricity, typically 3 microns (.0001") and guaranteed to be within 5 microns (0.0002") in production use.
- Works with either draw-type or push-type standard collet systems that are in any machine.
- Using the MASA Microconic™ System allows Machining Creativity more than ever before.
