Ceratizit presented an ambitious sustainability strategy during AMB—The International Exhibition for Metalworking 2022 in Stuttgart, Germany. During the same event, Ceratizit also won the MM Award for its SilverLine milling cutter made from the company’s CT-GS20Y “GreenCarbide.”
As a newly developed custom solution, a combination tool for heavy goods vehicle (HGV) freeze plug/water plug boring from CERATIZIT dramatically reduces cost and increases performance when producing the holes in cylinder blocks and heads. Such results are possible because the tool roughs, chamfers and reams/fine finishes holes in a single operation – even in grey cast iron with EN-GJV450 vermicular graphite.
For maximum productivity and machining application versatility, CERATIZIT offers a wide range of tooling systems within its expansive Indexable Milling line of products that includes the company’s new MaxiMill 491. With eight usable cutting edges per newly expanded 9-mm insert size, a precise 90°profile and a durable nickel-coated tool body, the MaxiMill 491 system is extremely well suited for all shoulder and full-slot milling applications.
To centralize operations and continue to better serve its customers, tooling supplier Ceratizit USA, Inc. has shifted its official U.S. Headquarters from Warren, Michigan, to the company’s Schaumburg, Illinois, facility location. Ceratizit acquired the Schaumburg facility when it absorbed the Komet tooling brand name and product line under the Ceratizit Group umbrella.
With the addition of two new sales engineers in the company’s Midwest Territory, Ceratizit USA looks to continue its double-digit growth while continuing to support and optimize customer tooling and machining processes.
With the recent addition of three new sales engineers and an application specialist, Ceratizit USA has doubled the size of its Eastern Territory sales and support team. In doing so, the company further improves response time and provides added expertise for its customers’ custom tooling challenges.
