    Tobacco

    Individual
    For years, we have been developing very complex components and forms according to customers’ specifications for the cigarette manufacturing industry. Of course, we produce all our components with extreme precision and the closest of tolerances – completely according to your needs.

     

    High-performance
    Finished precision components such as knives and scrapers are used frequently in high-speed machinery, where they are subject to high stress and severe abrasion. To that point, our carbide grades, which are characterised by low wear and, in return, have a long service life and reduce production downtimes, offer a decisive competitive edge.

    • Tobacco

      Type – according to the customer’s request

      • As sintered
      • Ground to customer specifications
      • Fully finished steel carbide composites in assembly

       

      Carbide properties (varied according to grade)

      • Wear-resistant
      • Corrosion-resistant
      • High compressive strength
      • High fracture toughness

    Oil & Gas

    • CERATIZIT’s legacy of innovation and unmatchable manufacturing capabilities has allowed us to develop unique carbide grades for oil & gas applications and serve the industry with a comprehensive product portfolio. We want to hear about your next challenge! Learn here more about our solutions for the oil & gas industry.

    Watches & Jewellery

    Jewellery for eternity - Scratchproof elegance
    Carbide watches, clocks and jewellery are characterised by a shiny surface and their high durability. Thanks to the carbides’ particular hardness, they are more resistant to knocks and scratches than steel, gold or platinum and therefore elegantly withstand everyday use.

     

    Decades of experience
    In the 1960’s, we had already developed the first carbide watchcases – today we produce tens of thousands of cases per year for various models. You can trust in our experience.

    • Watches & Jewellery

      Carbide properties

      • Wear-resistant
      • Good impact strength
      • Scratchproof

       

      We produce even the most complex shapes via the modern metal injection moulding process with very low tolerances.
