How can we guarantee new tool performance?
We guarantee tool performance after reconditioning. We incorporate a process into the design of our tools which allows for exact copying for future reconditioning.The reconditioning process will reproduce the same geometry and coating of the original tool. Performance testing is done on all reconditioned tools following the same process as our new tools to ensure quality.




Rely on our Yellowcoat experts for support and know-how for reconditioned solid carbide tools.

Original performance
Your solid carbide tools will be returned to you at their original quality and can be reconditioned up to three times.

Reconditioning your tools is cost-efficient and keeps inventory costs down.

Plan reconditioning to avoid disruptions

Plan when you send in tools for reconditioning so that you avoid unnecessary disruptions in your production schedule. Once a tool has been reconditioned three times and is not a candidate for reconditioning, solid carbide tools can be recycled. Our recycling program pays you market prices for your used carbide.

Chipping of the tools can happen during shipping and should be avoided. Take care to carefully pack your solid carbide tools following the enclosed instructions. All boxes will be delivered with foam inlays to secure that the tools are protected during transport. Tools that are damaged in any way besides normal machining wear may be ineligible for reconditioning.

Our reconditioning boxes are available in two sizes:

  • Standard Box (300x200x138)
  • Large Box (400x300x138)
