All technologies in-house
1. Powder production
In a production area spanning more than 2.000 m², the highest metallurgical flexibility is ensured.
State-of-the-art pressing tools that are precise to the μm for the production of complex indexable inserts.
3. Indexable insert production
The latest press technology for precision manufacturing of complex geometries.
20.000 different types of carbide parts are produced every year.
The expertise acquired through decades of granulate production and pressing tool building is precisely adjusted to the various pressing technologies and the carbide blank.
State-of-the-art pressing technologies
From the largest press of the industry (650 tons) for cost-efficient production of large carbide products in serial production, to isostatic presses, monobloc presses, rotary presses for saw teeth and hydraulic presses where the most complex geometries from 1.5 g to 450 g indexable inserts can be pressed.
Sintering and coating
With its process-optimised sintering procedures for a range of more than 60 different carbide grades, Boehlerit ensures the highest degree of metallurgical flexibility for its customers.
All modern coating technologies (PVD, HT-CVD, MT-CVD and diamond coating) for hard substance coating of indexable inserts are available at Boehlerit’s coating centre.
Grinders and cutting edge rounding equipment
More than fifty different grinders and equipment for cutting edge honing guarantee high precision products.
- Surface grinding machines
- 4-axis grinding machines
- 5-axis grinding machines
- Cylindrical grinders
- Wet honing equipment
- Dry honing equipment
Quality pushed to the limit
The demands of our customers define the development tasks of Boehlerit. Process-optimised production technologies – from our own powder production to the most advanced coating technologies – ensure a competitive edge for our customers in terms of productivity. The industry's most modern testing and packaging system for indexable inserts ensures 100% quality assurance in the μm range. The strictest dimensional checks and monitoring of metallurgical parameters ensure consistently high quality, a priority of Boehlerit.
1. PVD coating
The highest care and optimised mounting ensure the best, consistent coating results.
2. Die production
Manually polished and adjusted die sets ensure pressing tools precise to the μ and thus burr-free pressing.
Special attention is paid to the optimum position when charging for various processes.
Sustainability is not an empty promise
All-encompassing environmental protectionis not only "greenwashing" but every day reality and a fixed element of Boehlerit's corporate policy. The three practice-oriented focal areas here are: development and production of recyclable quality products with the longest possible service life; production that is gentle on the environment; and minimum environmental burden in the application of the products.
The world is only lent to us
Boehlerit sets standards in environmental protection and safety at work. The carbide specialist was, for example, the first industrial operation in Upper Styria to be approved under the new Austrian environmental management law. Boehlerit has thus secured itself a place among the top Austrian companies. Only some 30 companies have concluded the extensive audit proceduresuccessfully so far.
The staff makes Boehlerit
In line with the corporate philosophy of the privately managed family enterprise, the workforce holds the top position in the scale of values. The appreciation of each individual member of staff is made apparent in the fact that Boehlerit often employs three generations of one family.
