Quality. And Material


Carbide. The basis.

The list of everyday practical items that come into contact with carbide in the course of their manufacture is long. The technique used to manufacture the majority of tools produced by MPK Kemmer GmbH PCB Tools is powder metallurgy.

Tungsten carbide is the most common of these hard materials, but titanium carbide, tantalum carbide and niobium carbide, obtained from world-famous manufacturers, are also used. These extraordinarily hard carbides are embedded in a binding agent, most commonly cobalt. A variety of material types can be created by varying the proportions of hard material and bonding agent, and by changing the grain size of the tungsten carbide. Thanks to this variety of types, the optimum quality is available to MPK Kemmer PCB Tools for practically any application.

Carbide is increasingly being used at weak points in order to achieve higher service life in production. The great hardness and resistance to abrasion offered by carbide can extend the service life of such elements several times over. The wear protection extends from cutting and forming tools through to stamping tools, and includes cutting tools for paper and steel sheet, clamping jaws, nozzles, grinding bodies and other applications. In the metal cutting sector, carbide plays an important role in reaming, milling and twist drills. MPK Kemmer manufactures these tools exclusively in accordance with customers drawings, to very tight tolerances in the ┬Ám range. Carbide is therefore the ideal basis for fabricating the tools supplied by MPK Kemmer GmbH PCB Tools.


To guarantee the consistent quality of our products we do a full optical inspection with our Vialog-Inspection System. It allows us always to maintain our tight tolerances.

Quality can be found in every part of our company and is ensured by our quality management system. We are DIN ISO 9001:2008 certificated, of course.
