Richards Micro Tool (“RMT”) has been a leading supplier of miniature end mills since its origins back in the 1960s. Over the years RMT has continuously expanded its product offering, though always staying true to its niche of miniature cutting tools and instruments.

Also in the last decade the company expanded its operations to produce medical and dental cutting instruments. These cutting instruments are typically made of stainless steel to customer prints.

Similar to our focus on the industrial side of our business, we tend to focus on small diameter instruments that lend themselves to minimally invasive surgeries. On the industrial side of the RMT business we remain focused on the production of high precision end mills made from carbide, though we do continue to offer end mills made from cobalt as well. RMT has long been blessed with an extremely talented and dedicated work force that prides itself on the quality of the product that we produce. Our medical and dental products are produced on a contract manufacturing basis directly for our OEM customers, while our industrial cutting tools are sold by our loyal distributor base throughout North America.

Little Rock Tool

company-tools-lrt
Little Rock Tool (LRT) is a skilled cutting tool manufacturing facility located in Little Rock, Arkansas. LRT was established in 1963 to serve the growing demands of the Automotive, Power Generation, Aerospace and Defense industries.

LRT began its business as most cutting tool companies do; offering re-sharpening services. As the business grew, LRT ventured into standard altered step drills made from standard drills and then to manufacturing tools from bar stock.

LRT has a 44,000 square foot facility and manufactures what we call “special specials,” which is the more complex tooling that most cutting tool shops do not produce due to the complexity and difficulty of producing these tools. LRT specializes in high speed steel, carbide tipped, solid carbide, and CBN tools. LRT’s key to success is its ability to consistently solve their customers’ cutting tool needs and designing tools to improve the machining processes.
