No, you cannot use your existing login details for other CERATIZIT | KOMET | WNT | KLENK online shops. You will need new login details to login to the Team Cutting Tools Shop.

Can multiple employees of a company use the online shop?
Every employee who is authorized to place an order or an internal order request receives personalized access to the shop. However, order requests require the approval of an authorized person.

What is an automatic offer?
The instant quote is created without any revision of our customer service. This means you can have an offer created for your shopping basket in just a few seconds. This function is only available for standard items and is possible via the Request offer - Request instant offer function in the shopping cart. Please do not fill in the field "Your message to us" in this case, as this would otherwise delay the process.

What is an order request?
Users who do not have rights to order products can use this function to request an order (customer-internal process). These can then be released or rejected by a user with extended rights. Approved order requests can then be converted into an order.

Is it possible to specify more than one delivery address?
When placing an order, simply go to the basket to add a delivery address or edit an existing one. Simply click on the ‘Edit’ button to update an existing address or on the plus symbol to add a new address.
If you wish to edit or add an address under My Profile | Delivery addresses, please contact our Customer Service Centre.

Is it possible to use different cost centres?
You can specify a different cost centre per order and per item. This information will then be included on the receipts.


How does the shopping list work?
You have to be logged in to use the shopping list. When you are on an article page, you can add the item to your shopping list simply by clicking on the ‘Add to shopping list’ button. Here you can create a new shopping list or save the article to an existing shopping list. If you go to ‘Shopping lists’ in the menu, you can add the article to your basket with just one click.

How do I place an order or request a quote?
First you need to add all the articles you want to the basket. Then you can decide whether to place an order or request a quote.
Any quotes we provide will appear in your account.

Can I also view my orders that I did not submit via the online shop?
Whether they were made by phone, in person or via the online shop, all the orders you have ever placed with us will appear in your account under My Profile. You can check which articles you have ordered at any time and download the corresponding invoice as a PDF.

Can I also download CAD data?
In line with the applicable standard for cutting tool data (ISO 13399), our tool models are available in the online shop in all standard formats, including DXF, STL, STEP and PDF.

How do I cancel an order I have made accidentally?
All you need to do to cancel an order is give our Customer Service Centre a call.

Will I still receive personal consultation despite ordering in the online shop?
We still provide our personalised service, even when you order through our online shop. Our skilled in-house and field technicians are still available to provide you with help and advice on any technical matters or other questions you may have.

Can I also enter articles directly to the basket?
Yes, that is possible. Simply go to the basket. There you will find a field labelled ‘Direct purchase using article number’. Enter the article numbers into this field as follows:

Article numbers (separated by a comma)
1078904000, 1078904100, 1078904200, 1078904300

The articles will be listed automatically and can be added to your basket or shopping list with just one click.


How quickly will my products be delivered?
As you know, 99% of our tools are ready to ship and if you order by 6:00 p.m. they will be with you the next working day. If we do not have an article you want in stock, the estimated delivery time will be shown in the basket.

Do you offer express delivery?
As with orders made over the phone, express delivery is also available for online orders. If you order by 6:00 p.m. and select express delivery, you will receive your order no later than 12:00 p.m. on the next working day.(A selection of UK postcodes are excluded from this).
