Tool-making / forming technology

Precision, contour accuracy and process capability are requirements for tool-making and forming technology. NHT offers solutions that compel with optimized tool performance and stability over its entire service life.

Applications for NHT high-performance materials

In these applications, our carbide in particular is able to play to its strengths, but other materials from our product line are also in demand.
  • Carbide punches
  • Molds
  • Blanking sleeves for punch tool-making
  • Tools for cold-forming, drawing inserts, and molds
  • Forging pads
  • Embossing dies
  • Bending dies
  • Forging dies
  • Sinker electrodes made of TCu
  • Cup electrodes
  • Disc electrodes
  • Insert rods

Our carbide tools compel with their extremely high wear-resistance and are used where maximum precision and long tool life is required.


Our tungsten-copper is primarily used for sinker EDM processes. The key properties of this material include resistance to erosion, good electrical conductivity, high thermal conductivity, and low thermal expansion.
