The Benefits of Going with Customized Cutting Tools

Could your current manufacturing process be augmented with the use of customized cutting tools? Customized cutting tools are specifically designed to improve manufacturing operations, reducing waste and making the process of manufacturing both cheaper and faster.

1. Better and More Accurate Cutting

Customized cutting tools are able to produce more accurate end results, as they can be specifically designed for your unique manufacturing process. With the addition of special tool coatings, these tools can also perform better within your manufacturing environment. As an example, a custom tool could be less likely to build up material on its surface, due to a coating that would reduce its adhesive properties. Better and more accurate cutting provides for a better end product, which ultimately leads to higher revenue and less material waste.

2. Improved Process Reliability

Your processes with custom cutting tools will be more reliable. Because your tools are designed for your parts and your standards, they will last longer overall. They will break down less frequently, and thus they won’t need to be replaced as often. This will, in turn, mean that you can keep your manufacturing operations active more often. Improved process reliability reduces energy costs in addition to material wastes, and custom tools can also be used to reduce operator error.

3. Reduced Per Part Costs

Overall, customized cutting saves a business a significant amount of money. Reducing materials reduces the cost per part. Reducing manufacturing time reduces energy use and reduces the amount of labor necessary. This can lead to higher profit margins or increased competitiveness within a market that already has slim profit margins.

4. Better Safety Standards

By improving the process of manufacturing overall, companies can also improve their safety standards. Tools that are less likely to break will also be less likely to cause injury. Tools that can protect against operator error are also going to be able to protect employees from potential accidents, as they won’t be able to be used in potentially dangerous ways. If you now find that your tools require “work arounds” to use effectively, you may need custom tools.

It may seem like an extensive process, but creating a custom tool is actually fairly easy. Custom Tool & Grinding can work with you to create a prototype of your customized cutting tools, which can then be reproduced in any volume. Whether you need to print one or thousands, you can get your custom tools quickly. Your custom tools can also be re-ground as needed, so that they last longer.
