Carbide Tool Services, Inc. (CTS) specializes in repairing indexable tool holders for less than 50% of new replacement costs. For over 25 years, CTS has been working with customers to develop and implement tool repair programs that reduce tooling budgets. Our customers see immediate cost savings by repairing their damaged indexable drills, endmills, face mills, and lathe tools.

Repair costs are determined by evaluating the tool holder and estimating the time it will take to repair the damage and recalibrate it to the OEM specifications. A customer who is using customized indexable tooling may save 70% or more of the replacement cost. If a back-up tool is rare or non-existent, 24-hour repair can save the customer lost manufacturing time. A complete indexable tool repair program provides savings on many levels. Contact CTS for information about developing a customized tool repair program for you.
