CERATIZIT UK & IRELAND LTD
WNT (UK) has extended its Restart tool regrinding service to cover virtually all of the high speed steel and solid carbide drills and end mills, along with PCD and CBN tipped indexable insert tools in its range. The service guarantees to return the tools to with the original geometry and tool coatings, ensuring optimum performance when they are returned to the customer.
Taking advantage of the Restart service couldn’t be easier with a simple phone call (0800 073 2073) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) is all that is required to set the process in motion. On receipt of your request WNT will despatch a regrind box, delivery note and a courier returns label. Once you have packed the drills you simply arrange for the courier to collect no later than the next day and WNT will receive the tools for inspection the following morning.
In order to maximise the longevity of cutters WNT works on the principle of removing as much material as necessary, but as little as possible when it is regrinding. To ensure a smooth workflow and minimise disruption to its customers as soon as the first regrinds are received, a second regrind box and courier returns label is despatched to the customer, so that it can start sorting the next batch ready for grinding. To ease recognition, all tools reground by WNT will be etched accordingly.
With regrinds starting at just £3.00 for a HSS drill the WNT Restart service has a minimum order value of £50, but also has the advantage of not charging extra if a cutter requires cutting down in order to facilitate the regrind. Any cutters deemed to be beyond economical regrind will not be ground and will be returned to the customer. As a result, the WNT Restart service offers exceptional value for money, along with its efficiency with reground cutters being returned within 3-4 weeks, including coating time. A comprehensive catalogue containing details of every tool that is eligible for the WNT Restart service is available by telephoning (0800 073 2073) or e-mailing (email@example.com). Alternatively, ask your WNT Technical Sales Engineer about the service on his next visit.
“The Restart service is available on a wide range of HSS and solid carbide tools as well as PCD and CBN tipped inserts and customers have the reassurance of their cutters being serviced by the people that manufactured them, to the original geometry and, with the original tool coating reapplied. The Restart service is just another example of how WNT is working with its customers to drive down manufacturing costs by extending the life of existing cutters and delaying the requirement to buy new,” says Tony Pennington, Managing Director, WNT (UK).
