Track and mark your tools

You can easily keep track of your tools through our marking options, and we can customize packing notes to suit your needs.

Tool identification

  • Laser engraving: A standardized marking system on your tools will reduce the risk of interruptions in your production line because of lost or misplaced tools. Our tools are always marked, but if you want to have your own codes on the products, we can do this with laser engraving before delivery. Laser engraving improves oversight and identification of tools in stock.

  • Packing note options: We can customize your packages with specific information on the packing notes. For instance, we can mark them with your products and order numbers, if you want the delivery adapted to your logistical setup. We can print a text on the packing note, if you like, for purposes of customs or product certification. We can arrange multiple packing notes inside and outside of boxes and packaging. Barcodes make it easy to identify the products and enter them into your own system.

Matching the most suitable cutting tool material (grade) and insert geometry with the workpiece material to be machined is important for a trouble-free and productive machining process. Other parameters, such as cutting data, tool path, etc. are also vital for a successful result.

This chapter provides basic information about:

  • Cutting tool materials, such as cemented carbide, ceramics, CBN, PCD, etc.
  • Workpiece materials and classifications from a machinability point of view.
