As a technological frontrunner in the carbide industry we have over 1.000 patents worldwide and employ more than 200 employees in R&D. We also cooperate with universities and leading research institutes across Europe.
Passion for cemented carbide
CERATIZIT is one of the few carbide manufacturers who manages the entire process chain single-handedly: from mineral extraction to powder preparation, forming, sintering and finishing. This means that you will consistently receive supreme quality you can count on. This ensures that our carbide products have the properties required for industrial applications.
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.
