    Maximum efficiency for gear wheels

    Passion – precision – process reliability

    Whether you make delicate gear wheels for the watch industry, supply the automotive sector or produce gear wheels for special gears – the experts at CERATIZIT can develop exactly the product you need. Working with you as partners we will create your carbide hobs for large-batch and high-volume production. As a leading carbide manufacturer we offer you our expertise for the entire process chain of cemented carbide production, up to provision of the blanks which are of course delivered just in time to your production department.

Dialogue – efficiency – progress

Our online configurator revolutionises hob ordering. In just a few steps you can now create your individual blank, when and wherever you wish. Alternatively, you can of course still send us a drawing which will be used as a basis for your individual calculation and for the design of your near net shape hob blank. This minimises the costs for you – efficiency starts right away with the enquiry, and continues well into the production process. As a result CERATIZIT products offer the ideal conditions for final products with a perfect finish. Ultramodern cutting machines can handle even the most demanding gear geometries, in batch sizes between 1 and 250 items.
