"When a machine operator replaces a worn or broken solid tungsten cutter,
most of the tungsten is still intact and capable of being recycled - so It only makes sense to recycle this rather than tossing it out.”
- Glen McGaveston, Technical Sales Support Manager
The After Knife
Some of the largest global cutting tool manufacturers calculate that cutting tools made from recycled material consumes up to 75% less energy in production that that of virgin materials. It also reduces CO2 emissions by approx 40%.
