Much of our Reputation is BUILT ON SERVICE

Not everyone is in need of NEW tooling - you may have a stock of tools that need some TLC or maintenance.

We have experienced engineers that can help guide you through the process of REMAN or RECONDITION as well as the altering of existing tooling to new specs.

We understand that tooling is an investment, and we have many avenues to help your tooling LAST.

Recondition vs Remanufacture

Reconditioning removes less of the diameter than re-grinding.
• Don't turn your expensive, high performance cutting tools into cheap regrinds
• Simply re-grinding the O.D. of tooling will make a tool sharp again however, with each re-grind, you lose a portion of its original geometry and performance. 
• Loss of original design geometry leads to lost tool life and requires machining parameters to be slowed down to match the diminishing performance of re-ground cutting tools. 
• High performance tooling has become very sophisticated and expensive.

FOR A FRACTION OF THE COST OF NEW...
ATI will RECONDITION your tooling on the same state-of-the-art grinders that the tooling was originally made on. Geometry will be brought back to original design specs.
• Reconditioning in 2-3 week
• Special containers supplied for safe handling of high dollar tooling 
• Pickup and delivery


Remanufacturing maximizes the service life of your tooling.
Your tooling can go through the process of reconditioning several times before it needs to be cut-off and REMANUFACTURED.
Cut lengths specifically designated to allow for flute cutoff.
8" OAL tooling to 6" OAL
6" OAL tooling to 4" OAL
4" OAL tooling to 3" OAL

EXAMPLE:
HB2 series - part# HB5002-80C03
• 1/2" diameter x 8" over all length and has 1.00" length of cut.
• When it can no longer be reconditioned, it's sent through REMANUFACTURING
• It's 1" LOC is cutoff and regenerated as a 1/2 x 6" OAL with 1" LOC. 
• It can go through reconditioning until it is again REMANUFACTURED as a 4" OAL tool with 1" LOC.

Coatings

Extend tool life and increase performance with coatings. Our standard coatings have been developed for cutting, milling forming, injection molding and dry, high speed machining applications. Specialty gradient carbon-based coating are typically used on top of an appropriate hard coating or as single coating.

STANDARD COATINGS:

TIN
The general-purpose coating is outstanding for cutting, forming, injection molding and tribiological applications.

TiCN
Conventional carbon nitride coating:
» For interrupted cutting
» For milling and tapping
» For stamping, punching and forming

TiCN-MP
The tough multipurpose coating for interrupted cutting, milling, tapping, stamping, forming and hobbing.

TiAIN
The new universal high-performance coating for cutting (drilling, milling, reaming, turning). Also suitable for dry machining.

AITiN
Special high-performance coating for dry, high speed machining. AITiN performance surpasses all conventional coatings when machining cast iron and hardened steel.

Specialty Carbon-Based Coating CBC (DLC)

Special gradient coating. Self-lubrication as its own coating or on the top of an appropriate hard coating.
» CBC: carbon-based coating
» DLC: diamond-like carbon

Laser Engraving

We can add any tooling I.D. that you would like to the shank of your tooling.

Create prototypes or long run parts that look more professional and appealing. Our laser marking services provides a cost-effective method for permanently marking parts with many options including:
• Part numbers
• Company name and logo
• Bar coding
• Matrix coding
• Custom information

Inpection

We use HELICHECKs and a variety of other inspection machines to provide a non-contact measurement to maintain repeatability and edges throughout the manufacturing process.
