For cutting tools, US Tool provides the unique ability to supply new tooling from most major and specialty manufacturers as well as special aerospace cutting tools that we manufacturer or modify. Combined with the largest cutting tool reconditioning service in the industry, US Tool offers a unique vertically integrated cutting tool solution. Supported by US Tool’s proprietary Cutting Tool Manager software, US Tool offers an unparalleled capability to manage cutting tools throughout their life cycle from “new to dull to sharp again.” The Cutting Tool Manager solution produces significant cost savings resulting from increased reground tool utilization, reduced cost per use and decreased inventory requirements.

US Tool provides our Integrated Supply program customers with a variety of customized solutions and financial business models, including a management fee/no mark up approach where program costs are supported by a program fee that is fixed for the term of the agreement. In the management fee model, program material is delivered at US Tool’s net delivered cost. In a typical management fee program, the support costs are significantly less (as a percentage of spend) compared to other Integrated Supply and Distributor programs where a traditional mark up is used. Other Integrated Supply business models are also available.
US Tool’s Integrated Supply programs often include on site tool crib management and staffing, industrial vending, tool presetting, incoming cutting tool inspection, power tool repair, customer print management, FOD control and point of use kitting and other popular services.
