FINAL INSPECTION SERVICES

DULL TOOL MANAGEMENT

This program provides a unique solution for customers who desire to have specific slow moving cutting tool items set aside in the regrinding process until usage for that item is reestablished.

In this program, all dull tools are sorted with only the high usage items being reground and returned to the customer. Low usage items are kept in a dull state until needed again and then they are reground…a true Just In Time program. In some cases, the resharpened tools are also kept at US Tool and we manage both dull and sharp inventory for the customer.
