IMTS PRODUC TS 66 PRODUCTION MACHINING :: SEPTEMBER 2018 Cartridge Reduces Cycle Time, Enables More Subspindle Operations Masa Tool Inc. | West Building and Annex Level 3 | Booth 432232 Masa Tool's Microconic push-type F201M10 cartridge pairs with its Microconic collets for concentricity said to be within 5 microns (0.0002") in production use. The cartridge is a micro-workholding system for use in high-precision, small-diameter CNC turning applications. The cartridge is compatible with spindles that accept F20-201 collets. The cartridge and accompanying collet are designed to vector the chucking force directly over the holding surface, reducing the chucking force while also increasing the holding power. This reduces chucking damage on the workpiece and reduces cycle times by 20 to 40 percent, the company says. The cartridge's solid extended nose enables access for tooling and coolant with minimal overhang. Its core diameter is a single-piece construction that is designed to maintain 5 microns (0.002") concentric- ity at the extended nose tip. Used with the company's Micrograd wrench, the car- tridge features micrometer dial control of collet clamping pressure regardless of the machine's hydraulic or pneumatic collet closing force. The cartridge is suited for small-diameter parts ranging from 0.22 mm (0.008") to 10 mm (0.3934") in diameter. "Micro-movement" of the workpiece is reduced, resulting in a long tool life, better finishes, fewer chatter problems, and less damage to the workpiece, the company says. The cartridge eliminates second- ary operations, saves time and enables operations to be done in the subspindle.
