Masa Tool’s F37M10 cartridge is said to replace the standard TF37 collet in a users CNC spindle. This enables the use of the company’s Microconic collets to achieve concentricity within 5 microns (0.0002"), according to the company.

The cartridge is a micro-workholding system for use in high precision, small diameter CNC turning applications. This cartridge is compatible with spindles that accept DIN 1536E, Meister Swiss 563, Schaublin F37 (76-740), Southwick and Meister TF37, KEB (MasWerks) MC37 and Hardinge TF37 / 4619 collets.

The company’s cartridge and collet assembly is designed to vector the chucking force directly over the holding surface. This means the chucking force is reduced while at the same time the holding power is increased. This is said to open up the possibility of moving part operations to the sub-spindle and reducing cycle time. Also, the cycle time is commonly reduced by 20-40 percent.​
