Owners make a significant investment in their tooling, and incorrect maintenance will cost them dearly in terms of replacement tooling costs, quality of product and expensive machine downtime.

Contained within this manual is advice regarding tool regrinding and maintenance as well as a comprehensive troubleshooting guide to locate and solve problems associated with tooling. When used in conjunction with the machine manual, a maintenance schedule can be developed to maintain optimal tool and machine life.
