A word about ourselves
Find out how Matzdorf has established diamond tools in a succession of new industrial sectors.
Innovation and ideas for special functions
We find the better solution.
Innovation has always been an important element of what we do. Making new machining methods possible with new tools is just the beginning. Equally important for us is increasing our competitiveness through state-of-the-art machines in the area of electric discharge machining and laser, measuring, and grinding technology. Thanks to its intensive accumulation of expertise, at the beginning of the 1980s Matzdorf was one of the pioneers in the production of PCD and CBN tools in Germany, and created the foundation for establishing what then were new materials in the industry.
At the beginning of the 1990s, Matzdorf successfully introduced a new dimension of precision in this manufacturing sector through the use of monocrystalline diamond for the machining of hard metal drawing dies. A focus on applications is another important area of innovation for Matzdorf, resulting in a constant stream of new solutions for specific customer applications. These solutions help reduce time and costs in machining processes, improve the quality of the end products, and increase tool life.
At the end of the 1990s, for example, Matzdorf pioneered the machining of cylinder bore surfaces in engines made of hypereutectic aluminum with high silicon content using MCD tools, a process that is standard industry practice today. And naturally, the latest discoveries from our research and development departments find their way into our in-house processes and directly into the quality of our products through comprehensive employee training. For example, it was not by chance that the IHK (Chamber of Industry and Commerce) job profile for the accredited “industrial diamond grinder” originated at Matzdorf, where the quality management system has been certified since 1998.
