IT WORKS

Absorbing Vibration is the Key

Vibration in machining usually means damaged parts and surface quality, potentially destroying cutting inserts, and dramatically increasing production costs. Machining operations using high length to diameter ratio tools (L/D) have the most prominent vibration issues. MAQ integrates a new approach to mass dampening in the tool body to extract the vibration energy from the cutting tool body in order to minimize the movement and neutralize the vibration problem.

Physics & Chemistry Working Together

The complex problem is the change of vibration frequency on cutting tools due to the cutting condition changes (tool wear, wearing joints, variation of work piece materials, etc.). For these reasons, leading competitor’s products in the market require the optimized tuning of the cutting tools to ensure its performance. The out of tuning condition could make the vibration problem even worse, instead of improving.

What makes the MAQ products competitive is the self-tuning property. The spring elements adjust its stiffness according to the vibration frequency and overcome the problem of frequency changes. With its unique self-tuning property, MAQ tools outperform the solutions on the market and delivers the benefit to customers with better surface finish and higher process reliability. MAQ tools boost the productivity through simply machining, as you do not need any tuning, and it works at any set up you have in your production facility.
