Masa Tool, Inc. is a company founded with the mission of bringing micromachining solutions to industry.
The Microconic™ work holding system is a mechanically actuated micro-workholding system for use in high precision, small diameter CNC turning applications.
It's the first and only workholding system for the micro machining industry!
What is "Microconic"?
The name "Microconic" comes from the sophisticated grinding techniques that were developed for our collets. These techniques provide the advantages of extreme accuracy, high gripping force, and high tolerance for workpiece size differentials. Each finger of the collet has a separate conical surface that acts to apply the gripping force with superb accuracy.
The Microconic system is a miniaturized, precision collet system that consists of two major components: the Microconic cartridge, which fits into your machine and transforms the work spindle for miniature work holding; and the Microconic collet, a "right-sized" collet that fits in the Microconic cartridge and is designed for superior performance with small workpieces, typically .0001" to .00015" (3 microns) concentricity, and guaranteed to be within 0.0002" (5 microns) in production use.
The advantages of the Microconic cartridge
The power and strength is where it needs to be - times two.
WhizCut has re-invented the parting off insert for the future. WhizTwin is a bold new insert that helps reduce waste material and has a cutting edge stability.
The patent pending design of WhizTwin generates a cutting edge stronger than any other and a stability not seen before. The strength and increased stability of the cutting edge is maximised with two cutting edges at the front. This lets the toolholder be clamped in a more stable position with a smaller overhang from the toolholder plate - reducing instability and vibrations which are the main chal-lenges when parting off.
Less material waste, less costs. WhizTwin is forceful, stable and overall brilliant. The narrow insert allows you to lower your production cost as you save material using it. Removing less bar material is great for you and also for the environ-ment. It’s a win win - with WhizTwin.
