Rapid Response Centers

Stand-alone centers created with quality, speed, and customer focus in mind.

Kennametal Rapid Response Centers offer reconditioning services and localized production of simple special round tool drills and end mills. RRCs give you direct access to local Kennametal representatives for quotes in less than 24 hours.

Tools are reconditioned to Kennametal original coatings and geometries for like-new performance and reliability. With repeated reconditioning, tooling costs can be reduced by 50% or more in many cases, compared to the cost of purchasing new tools.

What is an RRC?

Kennametal Rapid Response Centers (RRC) offer carbide drill and carbide end mill reconditioning services, as well as manufacturing of simple specials for round tools. They are local facilities that offer convenience, fast turnaround, and on-site services for customer orders.

Kennametal’s tool reconditioning center in Kingswinford, England was recently upgraded to meet the rigid requirements to be an RRC. The center is a one-stop-shop for all of the United Kingdom for fast, convenient, and local tool reconditioning services. Worn solid carbide drills, end mills, reamers, and taps are reconditioned with certified coatings.
