A Vibration Damped Tool Holder with Self-Tuning Mass Damper
MAQ vibration damped turning tool features a Self-Tuning Mass Damper™ (STMD™) having a tungsten mass inside the tool. The mass is supported by polymer discs that have frequency-dependent stiffness. As cutting forces are applied to the turning tool, vibration occurs on multiple frequency bands. To counteract such movement, the MAQ STMD™ self-adjusts to multiple frequencies to maximize the mass damping effect, thereby reducing vibrations in turning and achieve chatter-free machining.
MAQ provides STMD™ damped machining tool holder in more than a dozen length-diameter combinations, as the table shows. To determine which product is right for you, view our Application Guide or our 2020 Catalogue.
