Millstar Featured Products
ABL Series Hybrid Ball Lens Inserts
Millstar's ABL tooling system uses an innovative hybrid ball lens design to provide a large end face radius - typically equal to the diameter. This allows up to twice the step-over to greatly decrease your cycle time without sacrificing surface finish. ABL is a great option for 5 axis milling as well as 3 axis.
- Achieve optimal surface quality in almost any material
- Dramitically increase productivity, even on specialty machines with smaller spindles
- Improve cutting performance in hard-to-reach areas of a complex workpiece
- Available in HSN or HNC grades to meet the demands of your application
BDS Hybrid Back Draft PCD-Tipped Bull Nose Inserts
Millstar's BDS combines PCD technology with the benefits of hybrid geometry, while offering the flexibility of an indexable tooling system.
- Cost Efficient - Proven to be the most cost-effective solution for graphite and other super-abrasive applications
- Extended Tool Life - Up to 10 times that of carbide
- Expanded Cutting Capbilities - Hybrid geometry + PCD tipping allows for high material removal rates, greater depths of cuts and 90° side wall machining with no chatter.
