Process and production reliability

Solid arguments

Companies that successfully stand their ground on the market for decades, like Gerhard Ihle Hartmetalle Werkzeuge e.K, never rest on their laurels. The company is always developing. And as a result, we possess in-depth yet wide-ranging expertise, without which our many tailor-made solutions and our huge range of services would not be possible.
We do more than just process carbide bars. We are also Europe’s largest carbide dealer, we plan and develop pre-profile carbide sintered parts, construct powerful cutting-off machines and offer a first-class range of grinding and eroding services, which we can also perform as contract work. What is more, the specialists in our own in-house material testing laboratory carry out metallurgical analyses.

The key customer benefits at a glance:

  • Consistent quality
    • Advice, machine design, material procurement, processing and testing: our high quality standard can be seen throughout our versatile range of services
  • Flexible production
    • Our customer base includes many special tool manufacturers, as they know that they will receive tailor-made quality from us – without long waiting times
