    Custom-made carbide solutions for mining and tunnel construction

    Wear-resistant & tough

    In order to complete large projects such as tunnel drilling or mining successfully and economically, reliable carbide tools are decisive: For long tool life, they have to provide high hardness and corrosion resistance, high toughness against tool breakage as well as compressive strength.

Individual & versatile

For all applications we offer a wide range of geometries specifically tailored for the respective machine, as well as a large selection of carbide grades customised for stone and geological conditions. Diverse grade variants in grain size, hardness and cobalt content conquer even the most varied requirements. You thus receive products intended for your individual applications as sintered or ground and in Premium or Economy quality.

Advantages & Benefits

Carbide grades in-house developed: high quality, tailored to customer’s needs, continuous development, dedicated R&D centres.

Grades with excellent impact resistance and ability to withstand high working temperatures grades as well as optimal ratio of hardness and fracture toughness depending on the application needs.


Flexible production planning with efficient data interchange.

Short delivery times – no matter how demanding.


Optimised production process, continuously expanding and investing in new machines.

Best price-performance ratio, shorter lead time and ability to react to spikes in demand.


Over decades, the CERATIZIT R&D team has acquired a wealth of expertise in connection with the brazing and welding process.

Thanks to 3D simulation, cooperation with universities and various internal tests we are familiar with the root causes of most frequently found brazing and  welding failures on carbide and steel tool shank.


Technical support by skilled sales engineers with experience in mining& construction applications.

Support in design optimization and cost reduction projects for our customers.
