Richards Micro-Tools Rebranded as KEO Micro Tools
Arch Cutting Tools, a U.S. cutting tool manufacturer, has announced that the Richards Micro-Tools product portfolio is being rebranded as KEO Micro Tools. The tooling technology is expected to be more easily accessible as part of the wider KEO Solid Round product portfolio.
“KEO is a machining household name, found in nearly every toolbox and tool crib throughout America Since 1941,” says Bill Orris, technical product and sales training manager for Arch Cutting Tools. “But it’s not just about the KEO legacy; KEO will continue to be at the forefront of innovative solutions, sophisticated applications, and in every manufacturing industry across America.”
