Masa Tool Inc. has created a precision collet device for the micromachining industry. The “Microconic System” is a miniaturized collet system that consists of two major components: the Microconic “cartridge” that fits directly into Swiss spindles like a collet and the Microconic collet that is a “right size” style collet. This chucking method is available for both draw-type (5C) and push-type or “dead length” systems (TF25), used on the subspindle of Swiss CNC lathes.
The Microconic grind provides extreme accuracy, high gripping force and tolerance for workpiece size differential, the company says. Each finger of the collet has a separate conical surface that acts to apply the gripping force with accuracy.
