Millstar Products - Face Mills & Button Cutters
Millstar face mills are equally useful on newer high velocity machines and older slower equipment and will optimize milling performance of all your machine tools. The hardened tool bodies can be run at aggressive spindle speed and feed rates, when used with Millstar’s precision ground, strong and thick, round inserts with proven hard, high performance TLN and HSN tool coatings.
The tools provide for precision finish results, minimal tool deflection and run-out. Excellent milling results can be achieved in roughing, semi finishing and fine finishing in Z-level, profiling or raster cuts, as well as in linear or circular interpolation milling or ramping.
The tools may be used with coolant, but we recommend dry, mist or MQL (minimum quantity lubrication) milling with strong air blast when high speed or hard machining steel, particularly in the higher hardness range (> 45HRc / 425 HBN). Please refer to FAQs (frequently asked questions) about milling for more information.
