On the one hand you see the costs of purchasing a precision tool for four times anew. On the other hand the tool is bought once and regrinded a total of three times. The performance of the regrinded tool is almost identical to that of the new one.
We recommend to regrind cutting tools a maximum of three times. Since otherwise severe changes in the geometry of the tool, weakening of the base substrate, and thus significant reduced performance are to be expected.
In the first diagram, you see an example of our high-performance end mills of the 35382 series in diameters 6 mm, 12 mm, and 16 mm. Here a savings potential of 34%, 56%, or 59% respectively can be achieved by regrinding.
The second diagram visualises the cost difference between purchasing a new tool and regrinding our solid carbide TC trochoidal end mills 37151. Also here the benefit for customers is similar. When regrinding the tool in diameter 6 mm, you can count with savings as high as 30%. For the diameters 12 mm and 16 mm, 48% and 56% resepctively.
