Our first IMTS show was a tremendous success! We got to meet many many new customers and where very pleasantly surprised by all the industry media people who stopped by to visit us at the show. We had an awful lot of people comment on the "Game Changing Workholding for Small Parts" by asking us "What's so game changing?" After they learned about the entire Microconic system we often heard them say "Wow! This is REALLY a game changer!!"
On Thursday, Harry Moser from the Reshoring Initiative visited us and we talked about how our products where developed right from our experience on the shop and because of the machining that is done locally in the Oceanside area. The video was posted live on our Facebook Page and you can find right here down below on the left.
Be sure to keep an eye our for some articles in some pretty big name magazines in the next few months. We're now on the look out for some application stories for them based upon the success you've had with our product. If you have a story to tell us be sure to leave it in the comments below or contact us so we can get all the details!
Avinger Inc., based in Redwood City, California, designs, develops and manufactures precision medial device technology with the goal of helping patients keep their legs. Recently they began testing the Micoconic system on their Citizen L20 (7M8) Swiss Screw Machine using a Utilis 3000 series cutoff holder and an 1/5mm X 10mm insert. The bar stock was .225" OD round.
They where kind enough to share their test results with us.
Masa Tool has 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 fits into your CNC machine spindle replacing the standard 5C, 16C, TF15, Tf16 TF20 , TF25 or TF37 collets, and the Microconic™ collet, which fits in the Microconic™ cartridge.
Part of the standard offering of Micrconic™ collets is the UM10W Over-grip series. The UM10W over-grip series is offered in the coverage range from Ø0.5mm - 7.2mm diameter (Ø0.020" - 0.283").
