Pharmaceuticals / Research / Medical sector

The pharmaceutical and chemical industries are characterized by wear-intensive mass-production. These call for wear-resistant powder molding tools. By using our high-performance materials, tool life can be increased several times while also greatly reducing costs.

Applications for NHT high-performance materials

Carbides and specialty metals for food processing and medical devices
Carbide applications include:
  • Scoring and peeling knives for the glass industry (phioles)
  • Press punches for tablet shaping
  • Carbide inserts for surgical scissors
  • Needle holder plate
  • Carbide specialty tools
Tungsten and molybdenum alloys:
  • Tungsten crucibles
  • Tungsten needles for cannula production
  • Shields for radionuclides
  • TZM nozzles

Compared to tempered steel, our carbides can increase tool life multiple times by accurately machining the scoring knives.


Based on its high variable density and high absorption capacity of x-rays and gamma rays, our tungsten heavy-metal is ideally suited as a shielding material in radiation equipment applications.

Tungsten heavy-metal

Molybdenum and its alloys are used in x-ray equipment and computer tomographs as heavy-duty anodes. Efficient alignment and reduced scatter radiation is achieved based on their good thermal conductivity. This also reduces the radiation exposure of operators and components.
