ProductionWhere man and technology complement each other perfectly


Our production facilities set themselves apart with their highly advanced machinery and their exceptionally well-trained personnel. We can guarantee the exquisite quality of our tools because we closely control every single step of production: from the procurement of the raw materials to manufacturing to delivery to the customer.

Example: Production of our latest-generation diamond tools

All powders are turned to granulates using latest technologies and machinery. The production processes necessary are performed in special air-conditioned rooms.
Adhering to the closest tolerances, the granulates are then moulded into green bodies using a high-precision cold moulding press.
Independent and specially trained quality assurance staff constantly monitor the quality of our products throughout the manufacturing process. Aside from the dimensions and weights as well as the hardness and density of the segments, we also subject the finished diamond tools to a comprehensive inspection.
Afterwards, all segments are joined to the carrier by means of a highly accurate laser welding process. The application of these ultramodern technologies is quintessential to our tools' operational reliability.


Trade associations and certificationsQuality and reliability are key We put quality and reliable operation front and centre during the development and the production of our products. Our day-to-day operations attach the utmost importance to a production process that is as gentle to the environment as possible and delivers outstanding product performance as well as maximum user protection.
