SPECIALIST TOOLS FOR SPECIALIST USERS
Scorpion Tool Services was established in 1990 to provide tool regrinding and universal grinding services.
Today, we deliver cost-effective solutions to tooling requirements across a diverse range of industries. Find out how we can sharpen your business.
Our engineering and manufacturing team is led by Chris Wands and Nick Reade who have notched up almost 50 years of technical expertise between them.
As a business we offer our products and services to distributors or end users and encompass a large range of industry sectors including aerospace, medical, automotive, oil and gas and general engineering.
Due to the growth of our business we have successfully implemented a works order system meaning that customer orders are booked in and monitored through the production stage to make sure deliveries are made at the very least on time and often before the due date.
Our ISO9001 Quality Management System also allows us to consistently provide products and services that meet our customers requirements whether it be delivery, quality or performance.
Our Equipment and Standards
Top quality equipment produces top results and our continued investment in Schneeberger 5 Axis CNC Grinding machines (currently 5) helps to ensure we provide superior quality products and services to our customers.
Recent investment in a Trutech 3 Axis CNC universal grinding machine, Schneeberger Galileo Inspection machine and GN Laser marking machine has helped us further enhance the quality of our products and service setting us apart from run of the mill grinding shops obsessed with price alone. For further information see our Plant List.
Known as the surgery machine, our Schneeberger Norma microtool is the ideal solution for the smallest of work piece diameters, with obvious applications in electronics, watchmaking and other micro-mechanical industries and of course the ever-growing medical technology sector.
Thanks to its unique clamping system, milling cutters, ballnose cutters, and drills with coolant holes (down to 0.2 mm diameter) can be ground at high precision.
The Schneeberger Galileo inspection machine uses transmitted and incident light and a 3D probe to quickly and precisely analyse all tool measurements and contours (diameter, flute lengths, tapering and clearance angles etc).
Resultant DXF visualisation and recorded measured values diagrams enable us to thoroughly inspect our tools and ensure they meet our clients’ specifications as well as meeting our own rigorous standards.
