Precise, durable and sustainable solutions in tungsten carbide – that is what EXTRAMET is all about!
In 1980 EXTRAMET opened its doors in Plaffeien, Switzerland. The company has evolved from a three-man operation into an international force for innovation and development of tungsten carbide materials with over 200 employees worldwide.
Ever since EXTRAMET was founded, our company has continued to focus on its core competence – the manufacture of extruded tungsten carbide. Our emphasis is on innovation and precision with a focus on the high-tech industries. Our product range has developed continuously, as has the entire company. Whereas previously we mainly manufactured solid tungsten carbide rods for the tool industry, these days we offer our customers and
partners customized solutions for their needs, in addition to a comprehensive product range.
As a high-tec solution partner, EXTRAMET supports customers by optimizing production processes thereby reducing overall costs.
Our high level of precision along with high purity tungsten carbide make EXTRAMET an ideal partner for companies who demand the highest standards for their products.
Quality and reliability are a main component of our philosophy. Our highly trained and experienced staff strive to find the best solution using unique tungsten carbide compositions for all of our customers.
