Hard cases are our speciality

We are your ideal partner when it comes to high-quality hard materials for production processes, tool manufacturing and wear protection. From standard products to tailor-made solutions, from massive components to minute parts, from the blank to the fully finished product – a product that meets the highest standards of precision, surface treatment, and user-friendly assembly – our carbide and ceramic solutions ensure improved efficiency and outstanding total cost of ownership. This is the case in a variety of application fields and industrial sectors. Even when subjected to extreme stress, our cemented carbides are notable for the high flexibility they offer in numerous industries. Our products are specially designed for extreme working conditions, making our Hard Material Solutions impressive tools for optimising your processes and increasing wear resistance.

Solutions for maximum efficiency and extended lifetime

Thanks to a fully integrated supply chain, we guarantee high quality levels, extended capabilities and secured supply. Every single stage from the ore to the blank to the ready-to-use solution for wear protection is controlled with high precision. Our cemented carbide and ceramic solutions provide you with a combination of high performance coupled with safety and reliability. Put simply, choosing Hard Material Solutions leads to increased productivity and lower costs.


Tool production at the highest level: semi-finished products and inserts

Rods and preforms made from high-quality cemented carbide as an ideal basis for outstanding final products; inserts for the machining of metal, wood, stone and composite materials. We offer solutions for almost all industries. Products not covered by the standard range are tailor-made solutions developed in close collaboration with you as a tool manufacturer or OEM.


Uncompromising wear protection for your production process

Whether it relates to hot rolls for the steel industry, tools for metal forming, abrasion-resistant components for the food industry or a variety of components for medical systems, as a leading cemented carbide manufacturer we have a role to play wherever specific hard material solutions can replace wear parts. The basis for this is a vast range extending from delicate small parts to heavy rolls, together with our engineering expertise which ensures that components boost their performance thanks to cemented carbide.

Your challenge, our solution

Precision, hardness, reliability: these are the characteristic features of our Hard Material Solutions for processes ranging from sawing to casting and drilling. Wherever they are used, our cemented carbide solutions and CERASPIN ceramic products combine resistance and wear protection to ensure reliable, optimised and stable processes. This enables us to guarantee you the high productive performance you require for all your applications.


Supplying solutions, not just products: our best-in-class services for the industry

The complex world of cemented carbide offers innumerable application possibilities and holds vast potential. Our quite extensive IT tools are ideal for tapping this potential, for example in connection with configurators and digital interfaces. We are also convincingly engaged with forward-looking issues like sustainable recycling, application engineering and additive manufacturing. At present, in fact, we are the only cemented carbide manufacturer who uses regular carbide grades in 3D printing. And we are happy to share our knowledge, offering comprehensive customer support and consulting services. Best-in-class logistics and specific supply options add the final touch to our service package.
