​​​​​​Recycling is both environmentally sound and profit​able

{{ asset.Description }}

​​Recycling your solid carbide tools is both environmentally beneficial and profitable. When worn out tools are kept out of landfills and junkyards, we all win.

Most of our solid carbide tools come from recycled carbides. We pay a competitive market price for used carbide. Customers can make tens of thousands of dollars annually in profit by selling us their worn inserts and solid carbide tools, regardless of their origin.

Did you know?

Making new tools from recycled solid carbide requires 70% less energy than making them from virgin raw materials. Production from recycled materials means 40% ​less carbon dioxide is emitted. Because these raw materials are scarce and finite, recycling becomes even more of a necessity. Estimated reserves of tungsten, for example, are around seven million tons, or 100 years of consumption. Why mine unnecessarily?

We use environmentally sound methods to recycle. The production in the recycling factory is ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certified. 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.

Scrap material turned into huge savings

Recycling carbide is not only good for the environment – it is also good for your business. You might be sitting on scrap material worth tens of thousands of dollars.
