3-D printed cemented carbide: turn the impossible into reality

We are a pioneer and innovation leader in the research, production and application of cemented carbide parts. We are always closely analysing the latest trends on the market so we can offer you the optimal solution for your application. That is why we have developed additive manufacturing technologies for our proven cemented carbide grades that are ready to use for your product.

This technology allows designers to think in completely new ways, as it pushes the limits when it comes to the production process: if you can imagine it, we can make it.

Conventional manufactured part: limited possibilities for designing the inner structure.


Additive manufactured part: brand new, impossible to produce up until now and offers virtually unlimited possibilities for designing the inner structure.


Your advantages at a glance:

  • 3-D printing provides new technological possibilities to overcome the existing limitations of conventional manufacturing processes.
  • Realisation of individual parts, from batch size 1 up.
  • Shapes can be re-designed and optimized, which is particularly appealing for complex shapes or for altering properties such as weight or size.
  • Faster production than in traditional powder metallurgical shaping, as time consuming steps such as CNC machining can be eliminated. This is especially advantageous for prototyping to perform quick tests and design improvements.
  • The manufacturing process is sustainable as there is less material waste.
  • The risk of errors when designing a new product is reduced, which saves a lot on costs as the process can become very expensive should manufacturing equipment need to be modified.


Your development partner

We would be happy to work with you to create your individual 3-D printed cemented carbide parts.

Our expertise lies in the optimization of the product design, and thanks to Additive Manufacturing, we can quickly realise your individual designs. We are looking forward to hearing about your challenges and finding the best solution for your application.

What does “additive manufacturing” stand for?

Additive manufacturing or 3D printing is a manufacturing process that successively adds layers of materials to make products from a 3D data model.

Thus, this process is the opposite of conventional production processes like machining or casting, where material is removed to create a specific form or poured into a mold and shaped by using dies, presses and hammers.
