We got an inquiry from our Partner that got an inquiry from a company with a serious challenge! They need to do a turning operation inside a hole that is only 10mm in diameter and 80 mm deep. They had tried everything they could find but not even the best and most expensive carbide bar could get close to the surface finished they needed. Our Partner contacted us, and we decided to take on the challenge. Is it even possible to build such a small de-vibe damped bar? We put in all our experience, knowledge, dedication (the MAQ-spirit) and together with our Partner, their new customer, our suppliers we managed!   And when we got started it was actually not possible to stop us from even making it with coolant through. We know that it is critically important to get the chips out and the smaller the hole in the workpiece the bigger the problem. Thanks to our very professional suppliers we got the whole made in the carbide and then it was “only” to assemble the tiny-tiny parts and test the



Looking at the results of the test we were astonished by how fantastic the surface finish the tool produced.

It’s a proud team that now took another giant step, even if the tool is small, to Simplify Machining in workshops all over the world! And be sure, no one else can do it so make sure you turn to MAQ also when you have small dimensions and high requirements. The MAQ STMD technology is unbeatable!

The machining test results showed us that this is another great product from MAQ:

Designed to machine smallest hole size of 10 mm, the product STMD M08-120 SCLCR can boost your productivity and make it to cut both  deeper and faster. See our machining video here:
