Are you really buying the lowest cost-cutting tools? Caution, tool cost is not based on the lowest initial price, it’s based on the total efficient productivity provided by the tool.
The Real Cost of Tooling
Here’s how you should be calculating your tool costs:
New tool price + total service costs + tool change over costs / total linear feet of production achieved over the life of the tool.
The actual tool cost really comes down to the cost of cutting each piece of material. The key cost variables are total productivity between sharpening cycles and maximizing the total number of efficient service cycles.
If you simply evaluate tooling cost based on the initial purchase price and assume you are saving money by buying lower-priced tools. In reality, you are likely buying lower-performing tools, more frequently, and therefore, at a higher overall expense.
Better Tools + Better Service
Leitz is intensively focused on providing the lowest cost tooling, by ensuring our premium quality tools are used in the correct manner and returned to like new condition at every service interval. By sharpening tools on precision CNC grinding equipment and adhering to Leitz principals of proportional and relief grinding, we ensure your tools operate at top performance over the greatest possible service life.
Leitz proportional grinding procedures ensure the sharpest possible cutting edge while removing the least amount of cutting-edge material, thereby maximizing total available sharpening cycles.
Leitz proprietary tool relief geometry, and service relieving procedures ensure premium cutting-edge quality and sufficient tool clearance which minimizes friction heat build-up and thermal breakdown of the cutting edge.
High-tech final inspection and dynamic balancing equipment ensure you will NEVER be shut down due to tool geometry or performance issues.
If you’re searching for the lowest cost tooling solutions, Leitz will always provide the least expensive solution over the life of your tools!
