Micro 100 Micro-Quik™


Micro 100’s Micro-Quik™ is a breakthrough tool change system that saves machinists countless hours by allowing for incredibly fast tool changes without sacrificing locational repeatability or machining accuracy. This fool proof system delivers impressive radial and axial repeatability, tip-to-tip consistency, and part-to-part accuracy.

In critical accuracy situations, many customers have enjoyed .0002" tool-to-tool repeatability, achieved in fewer than 30 seconds. This is 90% faster than conventional tool change methods, which oftentimes take in excess of 5 minutes, start-to-finish.

Because of its simplicity and extremely low margin for error, Micro-Quik™ is the preferred tool change method of machine shops worldwide, even those employing new and up-and-coming machinists.



Radial and Axial Repeatability. Tip-to-Tip Consistency. Part-to-Part Accuracy.



A Unique Design


Micro 100’s Micro-Quik™ features a whistle notch congifuration, proven to enhance axial accuracy over the standard set screw design used by other quick change sytem manufacturers. The whistle notch used by Micro 100 ensures that the tool is always held in location, anchored accurately in place, and pushed completely against the locating mechanism.

This axial consistency prevents all-too-common tool failures, scrap parts, and lost machine time due to improperly secured tools.

How It Works

During tool changes, the precision ground bevel specially engineered on the rear of each Micro 100 quick change tool aligns with a locating pin in the quick change tool holder. The distance from this locational point to the tip of the tool is highly controlled, meaning that our Micro-Quick™ tooling system ensures a very high degree of tool length and centerline repeatability.
