Carbide recycling


​Recycling is both environmentally sound and profitable

{{ asset.Title }}

{{ asset.Description }}

Make sure you recycle your solid carbide tools. It is both environmentally sound and profitable. We all come out winners when worn-out tools are kept out of landfills and junkyards.

Most of our solid carbide tools come from recycled carbides. The carbide we use comes from our customers, who can make tens of thousands of dollars annually in profit by selling us their worn inserts and round tools. Regardless of origin, we purchase them from you at the going market price.

Saving energy

Making new tools from recycled solid carbide requires 70 percent less energy than making them from virgin raw materials. Production from recycled materials means 40 percent less carbon dioxide is emitted. Furthermore, recycling is necessary because in the long run our raw materials are scarce and finite. Estimated reserves of tungsten, for example, are around 7 million tonnes, or 100 years of consumption. Why mine unnecessarily?

We use environmentally sound methods to recycle. The production in the recycling factory is certified with ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. We are continuously searching for ways to make recycling technologies cleaner and more efficient.

How it works

We leave recycling bins at your premises. You fill the bins. We retrieve them with certified green transports. You bill us. If you need advice about pilfering and theft, tell us. We have experience with security.

Our recycling service is available to all customers worldwide. Contact us and order a collection bin for each drill, lathe and milling machine. Let us discuss how to economize space on the shop floor and in your machining centre.
