A complete design Only with the drawing of the piece to realize and its raw material, our design office can : Special Products - create the optimal manufacturing range. - design the most efficient cutting tools. - recommend the minimum specifics of the machine to use. Our design office can draw up a report containing the drawings, the cutting parameters, the machining cost and as the case may be, the service life including the number of regrindings. Our engineers can accompany the starting of the machining with our designed cutting tools.
Our products can be delivered with a certificate of conformity signed by the controller. Upon request, we can deliver too a certificate for each cutting tool delivered.
A comforting organization: Special Products For all of our productions, we realize with Autocad the cutting tool drawings. Upon request, we provide these drawings with your name ( .dxf / .dwg / .pdf) We assure a complete traceability . Every step of the design and the manufacturing are written on a document wich is archived thereafter . Only with the manufacturing number marked on each cutting tool, we can give you all the information about the manufacturing. (raw material certification, date of manufacturing, machine used, name of the employee, process, …)
Regrinding Affût’Rapid and Desgranges Aéro can offer you : For the Desgranges cutting tools , to assure the same performance for a reground cutting tool than a new one thanks to the knowledge of all the manufacturing parameters. Thus our group can offer you a global solution from the design and the manufacturing to the regrinding. For all the other cutting tools , an applied regrinding with short delivery delays. The manufacturing of special cutting tools in high speed steels and solid carbide, for any quantities. Like this, our Group can offer you 2 delivery delays: -The « manufacturing delivery delay » for medium and large quantites. -The « regrinding delivery delay » ( 1 day to a week). The cutting tools modification with very short delivery delays.
