Workholding System Enables Switching Operations from Main to Subspindle Booth 1222 Masa Tool is introducing its Microconic workholding system for use in subspindle Swiss-type machine operations, enabling the operator to switch operations from the main to the subspindle so that usage is balanced. This capability is said to reduce cycle time in ways that are not possible with conventional collets. The Microconic system consists of two primary components: a cartridge that fits in the machine's standard TF20, TF25 or 5C collet closer, and the collet itself, which fits into the cartridge. Each cartridge model has a solid extended nose and can accept both regular and over-grip collets. The over-grip collets open up to 0.157" (4 mm) larger than the clamping diameter. The Microconic cartridge's extended nose design directs all of the chucking pressure directly over the workpiece for concentricity and rigidity. Total indicated runout (TIR) for the Microconic system is guaranteed at 0.0002" (5 microns) at the workpiece. :: MASA Tool , 760-732-1422, 773-927-6161 Clean Fluid Technology Get Proven Results 66 PRODUCTION MACHINING :: APRIL 2017 PMTS 2017: SHOW COVERAGE
