Sharpening

What makes us unique is that we sharpen with the same Robotic CNC Grinding Centers that made your tools.

Re-Manufactured. Sharpened to new.

Reforming an application specific geometry on unique carbide grades is challenging, which is why we use the same grinding centers as we did to initally produce the tool. This difference is how we deliver on our commitment to provide exceptional performance throughout the cutting tool's life-cycle.

Full Service. More than an edge.

Balancing, tensioning, and seating, all play a role in the performance cutting tool. When we take in a cutting tool for service, we understand your expectation is to receive back something better. Sharpening alone will not produce the performance you need, the act of cutting is the combination of many forces that begin where the tool connects to your machine. Tools fully serviced by us receive a cleaning, sharpening and inspection to ensure what you get back carries the same commitment found in our new tools.
