ReToolBlue for recovering the raw materials used
Tools that can no longer be re-sharpened are returned to FRAISA within the framework of the new ReToolBlue service and the value of the carbide is refunded. FRAISA cooperates with its raw material suppliers to ensure that this material is recycled. Our partners either process the material into rods, which in the shaft area consist of recycled material and in the cutting edge section of new material, or they go down the route of complete recycling and re-generate completely new carbide from the used material.
FRAISA’s ReToolBlue service completes our product and service range: From innovative products through a comprehensive range of services – such as cutting data, training courses, and the ToolCare tool management system – to the ReTool® service and finally recycling.
ReToolBlue – for maximal customer benefit and cost effectiveness.
Lifecycle management – the ecological tool lifecycle
The ecologically optimized use of the carbide raw material therefore extends from the product development stage, through tool management and application optimization, all the way to repeat reconditioning and ultimately a recycling process which is appropriate for the level. In this manner, not only is the material cycle closed, but the benefit obtained throughout the life cycle of the tool is maximized. This process is equally interesting from the ecological and economical aspects because it saves resources and reduces costs.
