OCEANSIDE, CA. Masa Tool has expanded their line of Microconic over-grip collets to include a new style called a "T-type." The T-type over-grip collet has a longer gripping surface than the original W-type. We designed it specifically for longer parts such as bone screws with wide pitch threads.
But, in some cases, with longer parts, the land width "B" needs to be longer to support the workpiece properly.
Masa's new T-type collet provides the solution for longer workpieces
Typically with over-gripping applications, a shorter land length/clamping pad length/grip length is desired because of limited space available to hold the workpiece behind the enlarged head or flange that it is reaching over. That is what our original W-type collet was optimized for.
However, with longer parts, with more surface area for clamping and gripping room, a longer land length is often preferred to provide more stability to support the longer length workpiece.

If you've tried other companies overgrip collets with poor results, Microconic over-grip collets will allow you to do things you might have thought impossible!
