KYOCERA Precision Tools

Printed Circuit Board Resharpening

Kyocera Precision Tools was founded on the commitment to deliver the highest quality printed circuit board (PCB) tooling solutions at a lower cost to our customers. We deliver on that commitment by achieving the longest tool life in the industry. Kyocera Precision Tools was the first drill manufacturer to commit to resharpening as part of its core business. Since 1990, we have been the largest resharpener of PCB drills in the world. More than 70% of all tools used by our customers are resharpened tools.

Kyocera has developed innovations that have significantly improved the life of our resharpened tools including Kyocera pointing machines (TPM), Kyocera automated sharp point system (VISIONARE), and efficient ringsetting systems (Rodica Jr.). U.S. Patents have been awarded for Rodica Jr. and for VISIONARE.
