Millstar Products - High Speed and Hardened Metal Machining Carbide Inserts
Millstar features carbide inserts to solve every conceivable application problem. Our carbide inserts include ball nose carbide inserts, high feed carbide inserts, toriod carbide inserts , flat bottom carbide inserts, and back draft carbide inserts. Each of these insert types solves specific problems to your manufacturing processes. Gain an overview of our tool holders, and learn more about our profile & copy milling program.
Among the carbide inserts that Millstar features are button insert cutters that are particularly useful for newer machines that operate at a higher velocity, though they are also very effective on older and slower equipment as well. With such a tool, you can optimize the milling performance on your various machine tools without sacrificing your need for low costs and lead times.
Millstar features aluminum milling cutters that take advantage of aluminum's unique properties to make cuts that directly meet your specifications. Our high feed indexable milling program features some of the most complex geometries currently in operation in the marketplace today. Our unique manufacturing process ensures that there is no tangent point that would induce wear and tear. As a result, you achieve very high feed rates that you would be unable to acquire with less advanced manufacturing technology.
Be sure to take a look at our Millstar solid carbide end mills. These mills were developed specifically in order to deal with high velocity and hard steel milling. The tools are manufactured in the United States of America, and the pricing is quite competitive in spite of our high capital investment in bringing these terrific tools to the marketplace for your benefit.
Overall, Millstar's carbide inserts are ready to take on any milling application challenge that your manufacturing process faces. Our tools are manufactured with precision, and with an eye towards optimal results for your company. Take a look at all of our carbide inserts today.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Precision ground for semi-finish and finish milling. Excellent choice for unattended finish milling at small depth and high speed and feed rates.
Sidecutting, non-chipbreaker. Side cutting insert used in cavity and core profiling, for blending of fillets on medium and hard materials.
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.
Precision ground, with positive ground chipbreaker. Flat bottom insert for shoulder milling, fillet finishing and long reach angular wall finishing of softer materials.
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.
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.
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.
Precision ground, non-chipbreaker and 7 degree backtaper. Used for milling of cores, cavities, fillets with straight or very steep walls of harder material.
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.
For high speed machining or milling of high hardness materials with longer tool life and superior finishes.
For carbon milling with longer tool life.
Precision ground, large corner radius & back taper for spiral and pocket milling, milling of pre-hard and hardened flat surfaces at higher speeds than tools with smaller corner radii. Good choice for HS milling of Aluminum.
