OSG offers die reconditioning services. Utilization of this program can lead to significant savings over the cost of purchasing new tooling. Flat dies, cylindrical dies and rack dies can be reconditioned.

Flat dies are either reground by removing minimal material on the die thickness or reground to cutomers specification. Cylindrical dies are reground to the next suitable diameter for the requested pitch. Rack dies are reconditioned by removing the existing form profile and then regrinding a new profile. After grinding, a shim plate is attached to the rack to bring it into new rack dimensions.

Upon receipt of dies for reconditioning OSG performs a full inspection to ensure that the dies are suitable for regrinding. If they are not suitable for regrind, they will be returned to the customer.
