A Tool Holder with Massive Appeal
The Self-Tuning Mass Damper™ (STMD™) features a tungsten carbide mass inside the tool. The mass is supported by polymer discs that have frequency-dependent stiffness. As cutting forces are applied to the tool, vibration occurs on a frequency band. To counteract such movement, the MAQ STMD™ self-adjusts to that frequency to maximize the mass damping effect.
Note: Accessories are meant to replace lost or damaged spare parts. Most accessories are included with the related product. See product descriptions for details.
According to tests conducted at a leading machine tool builder in March 2018, the MAQ STMD™ showed significantly less displacement than other tool holders and demonstrated superior versatility with respect to speeds, feeds, depth of cut and LD ratio.
