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.
