MAQ was founded by a group of people with the dream to simplify machining by removing vibration in machining processes. It all began when Dr. Qilin Fu was a doctoral student at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. He studied the effects of vibration on machining and realized the technology needed improvement. Qilin proceeded to investigate different systems and materials he could apply to the problem.

Qilin reached a breakthrough in 2015 with the use of polymers. The following year, Qilin and his partners Mihai Nicolescu and Amir Rashid applied for a patent. MAQ was later founded and the name came from a combination of the first names of the co-founders.

In 2017, MAQ began to take form, and early investors helped fund the growth path. One of them was EIT InnoEnergy. In 2018, MAQ secured its first round of investments from foundations and private investors. Even vaster investments were received in 2019 from private investors and institutions. The company received public grants from the Sweden Innovation Agency VINNOVA and grants from several prestigious institutions. That has helped MAQ to develop technologies in turning, milling, and hole making.

Featured Products

Finding the right vibration damped tool holder for machining doesn’t have to be hard. MAQ provides tool holders with self-tuning vibration damping inside. MAQ anti-vibration tool holders come in more than a dozen length-diameter combinations for turning, milling, and holemaking.



One of a kind technology

What MAQ’s self-tuning mass damper tool holders can do to improve your machining processes

Reduce vibration

You can’t take away vibration from machining, but you can significantly reduce it. Our STMD technology automatically adjusts to the targeted frequency in the machining operation, and our vibration damped tool holders automatically adapt to your machining operation.

Increase productivity

Since our vibration damped tool holder products can assure less scrap and higher reliability, you can increase the speed or feed to increase productivity. Moreover, the energy consumption will be reduced because of the reduced vibration in machining.

Become more cost-efficient

We have fixed prices, and our price level is attractive because we have a simplified technology to reduce vibrations and our vibration damped tool holder is dry from oils.
