Logistics

In cases where tool re-sharpening will be an ongoing requirement, Ultracut can send you a special Re-sharpen plastic safe case ensuring the safe arrival of your tools to us and then back to you. These boxes are waterproof, shock proof and extremely sturdy, meaning quite heavy tools can be safely delivered.

In situations where the customer has multiple departments requiring re-sharpen boxes, Ultracut is fully equipped to have the department name or logo machined into the top of the box, therefore avoiding any confusion.

Recoating

Ultracut also offers the option of having your tools recoated to bring them back to their original or better condition. These coatings can include TiN, TiCN, ALTiN, TiALN etc.

Depending on the material being machined and the coating that was applied to the tool, these coatings can offer a huge performance gain and vastly  increase tool life. Please see the PVD coatings page for more information on our wide range of coatings.

*Dependent on degree of damage/wear sustained during use.
