The push type F20 Cartridge replaces the standard TF20 collet in your CNC spindle. This enables you to use our Microconic collets to achieve concentricity guaranteed to be within 5µm (0.0002″) in production use.
The F20M10 Cartridge is a micro-workholding system for use in high precision, small diameter CNC turning applications which enables you to move more work to the sub-spindle operations and reduce cycle time.
Compatible with spindles that accept DIN 138E, Meister Swiss 555, Schaublin F20 (76-87), Southwick & Meister TF20, KEB (MasWerks) MC20, Hardinge TF20 / 4611 collets.
Masa’s Cartridge and Collet assembly is designed to vector the chucking force directly over the holding surface. This means that the chucking force can be reduced while at the same time the holding power is increased. This opens up the possibility of moving part operations to the sub-spindle and dramatically reducing cycle time. 20% ~ 40% cycle time reduction is commonly achieved.
Fits the following models of machines:
Set ups are quicker and more repeatable with Microconic. You can document the micrometer-adjust collet closure in your set up plan so it’s done the same every time, regardless of operator skill and without relying on “feel”.
Micrograd Face Dial Wrench is included with the purchase of any Microconic Cartridges.
The Micrograd Face dial Wrench provides a method of precisely setting clamping pressure on both the Microconic collets and an Microconic overgrip collets. It can be adjusted in metric increments of 0,02mm and imperial increments of .001″
F20M10-E – Inch version graduations on the MicroGrad dial wrench included with each cartridge.
F20M10-M – Metric version graduations on the MicroGrad dial wrench included with each cartridge.
