Millstar Products - High Speed and Hardened Metal Machining Carbide Inserts

Ball Nose Carbide Inserts
Ball Nose Insert MBT SuperFinisher Ball Nose Insert
Precision ground, harder grade, for semi-finish and finish milling. Excellent choice for unattended finish milling at small depth and high speeds and feed rates.
Ball Nose Insert MB Ball Nose Insert
Unique cutting edge allows performance in all operations in material below 42 HRc; in semi, & finishing operations above. Significant benefits in heat-treated intricate geometries. Insert geometry allows smoother cutting motion-diminishing heat build up & tool deflection, reduces vibration caused by cutting action.
Ball Nose Insert VRBS Small Ball Nose Insert
Used for semi and finish milling small radius or detail work, and surface milling in soft and hard steel, cast iron, aerospace and non-ferrous alloys, graphite, etc. Suitable for high speed and hard milling.
Ball Nose Insert RB-N Ball Nose Insert
Precision ground, non-chipbreaker. Best choice for cavity, core and profile milling of pre-hard and fully hard die/mold steels, cast steels and cast iron. Strongest cutting edge design..
RBT Ball Nose Insert
RBT Ball Nose Insert
Precision ground for semi-finish and finish milling. Excellent choice for unattended finish milling at small depth and high speed and feed rates.

BS-N Ball Nose Insert
Sidecutting, non-chipbreaker. Side cutting insert used in cavity and core profiling, for blending of fillets on medium and hard materials.
Flat Bottom Carbide Inserts
Ball Nose Insert BDS Flat Bottom Insert
Precision ground, non-chipbreaker. Unique crossover design between flat bottom FB and back draft BD inserts. Allows straight walls with a larger step down than BD, but less cutting forces than FB; allows higher cutting speeds and feeds.

HF High Feed Carbide Insert
Millstar’s new HF insert is designed for High Speed and High Feed machining. The HF is designed to run at high cutting speeds and feed rates with shallow depth of cut. The NEW curved geometry allows the chip to flow up and out of the cut quickly and smoothly allowing for the use of heavy chip loads. The geometry of the new HF insert generates cutting forces upward, toward the spindle, which helps eliminate vibration and deflection, allowing for very high chip loads. The HF insert is designed to fit into Millstar’s standard flat holders, style 4 (CYF, TAF and CBCYF) making these holders more versatile than ever.
Back Draft Carbide Inserts
Ball Nose Insert BD-R Back Draft Insert
Precision ground, with positive ground chipbreaker and 7 degree back-taper. Used for milling of cores, cavities, fillets with straight or very steep walls of softer material.
Ball Nose Insert VBD Small Back Draft Insert
Used for semi and finish-milling small radius or detail work, and surface milling in soft and hard steel, cast iron, aerospace and non-ferrous alloys, aluminum alloys, graphite, etc. Suitable for high speed and hard milling.
Ball Nose Insert BD-N Back Draft Insert
Precision ground, non-chipbreaker and 7 degree backtaper. Used for milling of cores, cavities, fillets with straight or very steep walls of harder material.
Ball Nose Insert
TOBD-NF Back Draft Inserts for Non-Ferrous Materials
Millstar's new TOBD-NF insert is specifically designed for high speed and high feed roughing of Aluminum, but also has the versatility to be used for fine finishing as well. This unique cutting edge design allows the chips to flow freely up the flute allowing higher speeds and feeds. The TOBD-NF comes in diameters from 1/2 inch (12mm) up to 1 inch (25mm) and fits into our standard flat type tool holders making the holders more versatile than ever.
