Specialist for semi-finished products

No half measures

Gerhard Ihle Hartmetalle Werkzeuge e.K. is a specialist for semi-finished products but we don’t do things by halves. Discerning companies around the world profit from our all-encompassing expertise. As a family company with decades of experience, in-depth know-how and strong innovative strength, we offer a comprehensive range of services.
We manufacture high-quality carbide bars for manufacturing carbide milling tools, drills, special tools and wear parts. The blanks are also processed on powerful Ihle cutting-off machines, among others. They are specially tailored to meet the requirements of tool manufacturers and grinders and are highly sought-after on the market.
As the largest carbide dealer in Europe, we also refine and sell a variety of carbide grades. All have passed the meticulous testing in our large materials testing laboratory, which has also established itself as an independent quality centre for carbide and carbide tools.
