Superior Tool Grinding Machines & Cutting Tools
Star Cutter Company was founded in 1927 by Howard B. Lawton and Frank Burgess. Our early focus on custom cutting tools led to a world-recognized expertise in custom tooling and engineering solutions for manufacturing.
The company grew into the design and build of Tool and Cutter Grinding machines as a natural result of its reputation for the highest quality cutting tools, and the need for machine tools that can produce such cutting tools with the precision and performance for which Star Cutter had come to be known.
Star Cutter has developed into a world leader in the cutting tool industry with over 500 employees working in six manufacturing facilities within five manufacturing divisions.
Each manufacturing facility specializes in producing a specific type of product or service:
- 5-axis CNC tool and cutter grinding machines,
- solid carbide cutting tools,
- carbide blanks and preforms,
- gun drills, and
- gear cutting tools.
