Innovation to enhance your performance

Precision and efficiency are key in the world of manufacturing and production. At the heart of these elements are cutting tools, such as drills, taps and tool bodies. These tools play a vital role in a wide range of industries, from construction to precision machining. Our hole bars (in high-speed steel (HSS) or tool steel) are more than just components; they are the key to cutting tool performance.

The advantages of holes for cutting tools

Our hole bar solutions are designed with efficiency, durability and precision in mind. The presence of holes improves heat dissipation, thus prolonging tool life by minimizing the effects of excessive heat. The holes enhance lubrication and cooling during machining, which is essential for efficient, high-quality cutting operations.
