At EXTRAMET, we are a recognised solution partner for high-tech industry. To make our Swiss talent for innovation accessible to our partners, we are very much committed to forward-looking customer projects and studies at colleges and universities.
The research and development team at EXTRAMET actively participates in the tungsten carbide working group of the Powder Metallurgy Association, whose task it is to organise and carry through development projects. For example, the corrosion behaviour of tungsten carbide, its stress behaviour during cooling or the risk of mechanical defects arising from surface grinding are all examples of projects that have been worked on in recent years.
Other topics of the working group include standards and health issues.
