FRAISA ReTool® – All-round service to restore original performance
FRAISA ReTool® – It pays off
How reconditioning pays off for you
As they wear, your tools lose more and more of their performance capability. That’s why it’s important for productivity and product quality in your company to replace tools in good time. With our FRAISA ReTool® service, we offer you the ideal solution – both for FRAISA tools and third-party tools. Our industrial reconditioning service allows us to supply you with ‘mint-conditioned’ tools for your production processes quickly and cost-effectively.
We help you optimize your tools’ machining time
We are more than happy to help you determine the ideal moment to send your tools for reconditioning – by means of a quick check and costbenefit analysis. In this way, you avoid unnecessary costs resulting from sending tools that are still productive, too soon for reconditioning. At the same time, you avoid having to purchase new tools sooner than otherwise necessary, as a consequence of disproportionately high wear due to waiting it too long.
FRAISA ReTool® – Cost savings through reproducible 100% performance
We restore to the original performance level
If you have your tools reconditioned “by hand”, it’s only cheaper than industrial processing at first sight. A low-quality reconditioning process that is not optimally tailored to your tools, can even turn out to be more expensive for you than buying new tools. “Manual” reconditioning cannot guarantee reliable and consistent tool quality. Fluctuations in the quality leads to unstable process parameters, so that your machining output has to be cut back for safety reasons. That’s because as soon as the efficiency of your tool can no longer be restored, the nominal parameters can also no longer be used. This leads to rising production costs.
FRAISA ReTool® allows you to make cost savings compared with manual reconditioning. Thanks to industrially consistent reproduction, the original performance level is achieved and your tool is as productive after reconditioning as it was the first day it was used. This reliable tool quality guarantees production reliability and stable machine performance and output.
You can be sure that your reconditioned tool will achieve its maximum service life with 100% performance while featuring the same degree of process reliability as a new tool. FRAISA guarantees this through its state-of-the-art, multi-axis grinding machines, coating and cutting-edge preparation systems, up-to-the-minute measuring technology and the many years of experience enjoyed by our reconditioning specialists.
FRAISA ReTool® – Cost savings through maximum material retention
We maximize the number of reconditioning cycles
Each tool wears differently. That’s why we recondition each tool individually. In precise terms, this means that we preserve as much material as possible – and remove as little as is necessary to restore the original performance level.
FRAISA ReTool® consequently enables each of your tools to be reconditioned several times and extends its overall service life. At the same time, it pushes back the moment at which buying a new tool becomes unavoidable.
