Tooling Regrinding


End Mills

End Mills - Tooling Regrinding

End mills can be reground on the flutes to remove the wear, when possible we regrind the inside of the flutes to maintain as much of the diameter as possible. Grinding on the outside of the flutes reduces more of the diameter however it is only done when the wears is more severe.

Alternatively, if a short portion of the tool length is worn i.e. the end 6mm. We can cut off the worn portion and regrind new end teeth. The tool is returned with original diameter but a little shorter in length.

Slot Drills

Slot Mills Tooling Regrinding

Slot drills are used to machine slots and the cutter size is important. In this case the cutter has been worn to the depth of the slot. We can refurbish the tool by removing the worn section and regrinding new end teeth. The tool is returned with original diameter but a little shorter in length.

Alternatively, many customers prefer to use these two flute cutters for machining aluminium or plastic and require the worn diameter to be sharpened. In this case we regrind the diameter and sharpen the end teeth.

Ball Radius End Mills

Ball Radius End Mill Tooling RegrindingMany customers use only the ball radius and a small section of the cutter diameter and in this case we can remove the worn portion and CNC regrind the ball radius. The tool is returned with original size and ball radius but a little shorter in length.

Ripper Cutters

Ripper Cutters Tooling RegrindingRipper Cutters are restored by grinding inside the flutes to clear wear. Although the profile on the diameter is form relieved the amount removed from inside the flutes does not significantly reduce the size of the tool.

Many Ripper Cutters are only used for shallow cuts and the worn part of the flutes can be cut off and new end teeth reground. The cutter is then returned with the original diameter size but slightly shorter in length.

Counter Boring Tools

Counter Boring Tooling RegrindingCounter Boring tools wear on the end cutting face and can easily be restored by grinding the end teeth back to an unworn section. The tool is returned without alteration to the original counter boring diameter.

Corner Rounding Tools

Threading Taps

Threading Taps Tooling RegrindingVarious types of threading tap can be sharpened. Typically the tool is ready for regrinding when the first full thread is chipped or worn - visually 2 or 3 pitches are cut off and the lead renewed.
