Cutting Tools Feature Hybrid Geometries
EDM Sales & Supplies offers Millstar’s Quad Force line of hybrid cutting tools, which offer a combination of high-feed, variable-flute, variable-helix and offset geometries.

Solid Carbide Systems Perform Four Cutting Actions in One Tool
With the capacity to perform four cutting actions in one tool, Millstar’s Quad Force Machining (QFM) solid carbide tooling systems offer cost and time savings, eliminating the need for additional tools and decreasing the number of required tool changes.

Hybrid Geometry Machining in Action
Hybrid quad-force geometry is a combination of high-feed geometry, variable flute geometry, variable helix geometry and offset geometry that gives programmers and machinists the flexibility to side/slot, high-feed, trochoidal and plunge/variable plunge mill with one tool.

Lowering Tooling Cost by Using Low-Friction Coatings
There are many components to the mold manufacturing process, but from a cost benefit approach to productivity, tooling technology is going to yield the biggest return, and coating technology is key.

High-feed tooling

Using High-Feed Machining Strategies to Get to Net Shape
High-feed tooling and high-feed machining could be the key factor in maximizing your shop’s roughing efficiency.

Ball Nose Insert
Millstar’s (Warren, MI) BDS series—a two flute bull nose insert design—was is designed to facilitate multi-axis machining of dies, molds, and similar free form three-dimensional surfaces while performing high speed or hard milling.

High-Speed, High-Feed Insert
The HF insert from Millstar (Warren, MI)—developed for high-speed and high-feed machining—is designed to run at high cutting speeds and feed rates with shallow depth of cut.
