NEW Masa Tool offers a Comprehensive Range of Microguide EGS™ Ejection Guide Sleeves in Different Materials
The standard Microguide EGS is made of brass. Masa Tool has expanded the standard offer of Microguide EGS to include a selection of both Plastic and Stainless Steel versions.
A critical aspect to using over-grip collets is to make sure the part is ejected reliably when it is completed being machined. Due to the wide opening of the over-grip collets, parts can get jammed in the collet slot. As a result, the collet will be damaged or break when it is closed.
Every Microconic over-grip collet is supplied with a blank Microguide EGS ejection guide sleeve that you can drill to size to fit your specific part to enable the finished part to be ejected consistently without damage to the over-grip collet. The EGS is meant to be drilled through with a loose-fitting hole that will support and help guide the workpiece as it is ejected from the collet. Users can customize the Microguide EGS to match their specific workpiece and method of ejection.

We also have a special type of guide sleeve blank designed for very long parts like this, which extends out the back end of the collet about 1/2" further to give some support.
They are our part number EGS10-12.
Due to the extreme opening capability of our overgrip collets , workpiece ejection must be very reliable to prevent a part from becoming stuck in the slots of the collet. Therefore we have developed the Microguide™ ejection guide sleeve to prevent parts from falling inside the collet instead of ejecting into the part catcher.
