Sharpening a tool 5-6 times is relatively easy, but the ability to sharpen the same tool 12-15 times can reduce your overall tooling costs by 50% or more.
Your cutting tools play a vital role in the overall quality and performance of your finished product. Precision servicing of your tools is critical to maximizing the investment you have made in your tooling solution. It’s important to partner with a tooling service provider with the expertise to ensure the longevity of your tooling and, in turn, the ongoing efficiency of your production process and quality of your product. These are the three most important qualities to look for when you select your tooling service partner.
Your tooling service partner should assess your entire production environment and suggest tooling solutions which will optimize your productivity and profitability. This consultative method can be utilized throughout the service cycle as well. Each time a tool is ready for service your representative should offer ideas to maximize current tool capabilities through usage and servicing options to make certain your tools operate at optimum performance levels for their entire lifecycle.
Experienced service technicians use the finest grinding machinery, precision measuring and inspection equipment, dynamic balancing equipment, and the most current grinding know-how available to keep your cutting tools performing at optimal levels. Your service provider should make an ongoing investment in the quality of their sharpening and reconditioning equipment.
Experience of Service Technicians
Service technicians should receive continuous qualification updates and training with a special focus on technology and production Service and quality standards should be uniform, consistent, understood and applied by every technician in every company service center. In our rapidly changing industry, the best technicians have up-to-date knowledge on current trends and techniques they can apply to enhance your production success.
The best tooling value can only be accomplished through precision service which maximizes the total service cycles and the overall productivity of each tool. Precision tool service will also yield longer service life between sharpening or repair, resulting in fewer tool changes, less machine downtime and improved productivity.
