Precision Cutting Solutions

Star Cutter provides custom-engineered drills, reamers and PCD tooling across a variety of tight tolerance and high precision applications. Our tooling solutions are marketed, sold and serviced by our Star SU LLC affiliate company.

It All Starts with Your Application

We oversee the entire process from engineering through production of tools on our own machines, backed by application support and tool repair. We start the development of your tool by first understanding your feed, speed, material and cycle time.

From this, we can then select from a wide range of geometries, coolant holes, carbide grades and coatings for milling, drilling and reaming in a variety of material groups.  The tool is then designed in our CAD software programs and tested in our flow simulation program to identify any potential hot spots in the tool. We then refine, verify and deliver a tool that will perform as promised.

With over 90 years in the business, our experience enables us to solve unique challenges that help to reduce machining time, improve quality, productivity and cost of ownership across the life of the tool.

We are passionate about crafting a best-in-class solution to fit each application while fostering long-term, personal relationships with our customers.

If it doesn’t exist, we find a way or make one.
