Helro Insert Profile Tools reduce belt profile cutting tool costs 40%, tooling inventory 50%, logistics costs 90%, and delivery lead times from 4-6 weeks to 1 week. Our Insert Profile tools utilize a patented design to attach the insert to the cutter body that allows two uses per insert. This design allows your production personnel the ability to remove the worn inserts, flip the insert and reinstall it for a second use. This reduces the amount of inventory by half and reduces production downtime. When the second side of the insert needs sharpening, you ship them back to Helro, and the next day a freshly remanufactured set of inserts ships to your facility to replace them.
Current belt profile cutting technology uses a series of carbide tipped saws custom ground to belt profiles. When the tool needs sharpening, the entire 11Kg tool is shipped across the world in large wooden crates to a sharpening center. This process takes 4 – 6 weeks to repair the tool and ship a second time back to your production facility. Helro Insert sets weigh 1.8Kg, provide two uses and ship in small cardboard boxes reducing logistical and shipping costs by 90%.
If you are still using carbide tipped profile saws, known as flycutters or piranha tools in your belt manufacturing process, consider contacting Helro Corporation to design an Insert Profile Tooling system for your production needs.
