Metal deformation with high surface quality
From wear resistance to heat resistance
Grain sizes and the binder compositions of our carbide grades are combined according to their specific application requirements, which allows the metal forming tool’s characteristics to efficiently cover the range from extremely wear-resistant to equally as heat-resistant.
A long tool life reduces production costs
Carbide grades developed especially for metal forming are enormously wear-resistant and simultaneously tough. They resist high temperatures, withstand high pressure, and guarantee long tool life and high repeated accuracy.
