Machining Vibration Control is the Key
Vibration in machining means damaged parts and surface quality, destroyed cutting inserts, and increased production costs. Machining operations using high length to diameter (L/D) ratio tools have the most prominent vibration issues. MAQ provides vibration damped tool holders which has a new approach to extract the vibration energy from the cutting tool body to control the machine tool vibration problem. The new approach has a self-tuning mass damper in the damped tool holder body and it automatically adjust it self as vibration occurs.
Physics & Chemistry Working Together
The challenge is the change of vibration frequency on machining 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 mass damper to ensure performance. The out of tuning condition could make the vibration problem even worse, instead of controlling.
With MAQ self-tuning mass damper on damped tool holders, the spring elements on mass dampers automatically adjust its stiffness according to the machining tool’s vibration frequency. The unique self-tuning property enables MAQ damped machining tools outperform the solutions on the market while providing better surface finish and higher process reliability. MAQ damped machining 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.
