CERATIZIT ReStart – our regrinding service for cutting tools

Get more out of your tool!

CERATIZIT is known the world over for its consistently high product quality – and for reliable service that is optimally geared towards customers and products. It goes without saying that this also includes regrinding of tools as – despite the highest quality and tool life – our tools do eventually reach their wear limit sooner or later.

Thanks to our professional regrinding service, with original geometries and coatings, we are able to restore tools almost to their original performance capacity so that they continue to meet all quality parameters to the highest possible standard. The process also extends the tool's life span at the same time, so new purchases make up a substantially lower proportion of your budget.

What tools can be given a ReStart?

  • HSS drills
  • Solid carbide drills
  • Solid carbide drill heads
  • Reamers
  • Solid carbide thread milling cutters
  • CBN and PCD cutting inserts
  • HSS milling cutters
  • Solid carbide milling cutters
  • MultiChange exchangeable heads

The regrinding prices for your tool are easy to find in our online shop. Alternatively, you can also use our digital ReStart price list*. It contains all the latest price information for our ReStart products. 

Of course, the prices of our regrinding service are also calculated fairly and transparently – with CERATIZIT's ReStart programme there are no additional charges for cutting off, roughing geometries, etc. The published prices apply irrespective of the condition your tool arrives in. If it is no longer possible to regrind your tool, it will be returned to you unmachined.

Save resources and act sustainably

We close the loop from the secondary raw material to the finished product. The CERATIZIT Group is constantly optimising its yield to avoid generating secondary materials, not only externally but also in internal processes. The regrinding service we offer our customers also makes a key contribution to sustainability.

Our repurchase price for carbides is always based on the current market price. We organise the entire process for you and also provide free, quantity-specific collection containers and transport solutions.
