CERATIZIT S.A. has been a pioneer in exceptional hard material cutting and wear protection solutions for almost one hundred years. The Group, which is still privately run and is based in Mamer in Luxembourg, develops and produces highly specialized tungsten carbide cutting tools, inserts, rods made of hard materials, and wear parts. It is already the world market leader in individual application areas for wear parts and is successfully developing further new carbide, cermet and ceramic grades for the wood, metal and stone working industries.

It is against this backdrop that Toolmaker Solutions by CERATIZIT is at LIGNA 2017 in Hannover to present several product innovations for the wood processing industry. These new developments aim to open up additional options for tool manufacturers to enhance their performance, save money and optimize their production processes. They include a new hard metal grade, a new surface coating and innovative product geometries. However, CERATIZIT is keeping things interesting, with more detailed information about these innovations being reserved for visitors to LIGNA at the trade fair in Hannover itself.
