5 Ways That Companies Can Save Money by Refurbishing Their Cutting Tools



If you're a business owner, you know that time is money. And if you're a manufacturer, you know that the faster your workers can complete products, the more profit you'll make.

But it's not always easy to increase efficiency in a factory or workshop.


Fortunately, there are several ways that companies can benefit by refurbishing their cutting tools. Here are five of them:


#1 - Improved Safety


Cutting tools are one of the most important and expensive parts of any workshop. They can also be very dangerous if they’re not sharpened properly. A dull tool is more likely to break than one that is properly maintained and can continue doing its job without potentially injuring an operator.


#2 - Improved Finish


Sharpened tools will give a much better finish on the materials you’re working on. This can lead to less wastage of materials that have been incorrectly cut out, as well as a professional appearance to the products being manufactured in your workshop.


#3 - Reduce Waste


Blunt tools are less effective than sharp ones, so there's a chance that the material being cut will be damaged and have to be discarded. Refurbished tools help keep waste down and allow us to keep our earth clean by restoring tools that would otherwise end up in landfills or oceans!


#4 - More Affordable


Getting your tools refurbished is 30% more cost effective than replacing them with new ones. This equates to each new tool having three regrinds out of it before needing to be replaced.


#5 - Save Time


If your cutting tools aren't sharp enough to cut accurately, they'll waste time and materials, ultimately slowing down production.


A dull tool won't perform as efficiently as a sharp tool and will take much longer to cut, weakening your profit margins as a result.


Isn't saving 30% something that all businesses need to be concerned with?


Each option listed above will help companies decrease their expenses by allowing them to extend the life of expensive cutting tools. Of course, there are other ways to save money and extend the life of these tools as well, including (but not limited to) maximizing maintenance efforts and making sure that each tool is properly stored.


Whilst opting to get your tools refurbished is almost guaranteed to save you money, it is important to make sure you're choosing a reputable company with a long history in cutter grinding. Luckily, BJ Associates has over 30 years of experience in the industry.
