Evamet - Creusot (71)

  • Image evamet

Evamet, formerly Carbex, is a historical company in Saône-et-Loire. In 1949, tungsten carbide tools were already being manufactured here, behind the walls and under the Eiffel-style riveted metal structure built in 1911, which then housed the Schneider electric station.

Today, Evamet produces carbide inserts as well as wear parts. "We develop our own grades. Two people are in charge of this activity in our metallurgy laboratory, where the nuances are not only elaborated but also tested, describes Benjamin Julliere, manager of the Group. " We make our own mixtures, we grind tungsten powder, we master the granulation and then we carry out the pressing shaping, sintering and grinding ". There is a press shop with its pellet presses on which the cutting inserts are pressed. Carbide blanks are manufactured from lopin pressed into bars in a cold isostatic press, which are then shaped on CNC lathes and milling machines, before being hardened in a HIP (Hot Isostatic Pressing) sintering oven. Then they are either rectified or the raw material is supplied as is.

In the finishing shop, where lapping operations are performed to adjust the thickness of the inserts, the peripheral grinding of the inserts is carried out on 4- and 5-axis robotized NC centers. These high precision grinding machines also allow us to manufacture and grind ceramic and CBN inserts.
A fleet of machines in continuous renewal with recent investments, especially in cutting edge treatment systems for carbide inserts, for a smoother finish and better chip glide.

Create Outillage - Vaulx en Velin (69)

Specialist in the manufacture of carbide and steel tools, Create Outillage focuses on cold heading applications, semi-hot, cutting and forming of metals. A refurbishing service (changing the die core) and tool sharpening service is also offered to revive active surfaces.

Create Outillage is able to manufacture dies from 20 to 300 mm in diameter, for high, for a height not exceeding 300 mm, punches from 3 to 150 mm in diameter, from special and standard carbides, high speed steels, cast or sintered.

The latest investments made on the site allow us to go into complex markets. " The new production facilities allow us to achieve a roughness at the end of the grinding process that is as close to polishing as possible, down to a Ra of 0.05 ".

Create Outillage also distinguishes itself by its know-how in hard turning machining, for wear parts requiring a high hardness of 50 to 67 HRC and 2,000 HV for carbide, with "high precision".

Gmo- Montbrison (42) et Joué-Lès-Tours (37)

Dedicated to the design and production of special tools for combined machining, the GMO has one main mission: to save time and money for the users of its tools !

The know-how of the site is a great strength of the group : seven people in the design and methods office, works on the main design and programming software, able to quickly design special tools to meet the needs expressed by the customer.
Whether for multifunctional turning, 5-axis milling, boring, counterboring, core drilling or drilling operations, the tool holders are designed and drawn in 3D and then offered to the end customer.

Gmo uses two CNC lathes to prepare tool bodies and accessories, and four 5-axis machining centers to accurately complete drilling and milling operations in a single package. Twenty or so drilling, boring and grinding machines allow us to meet the more specific demands of the tools designed.

Evatec - Thionville (57)

Evatec specializes in the manufacture and sharpening of tungsten carbide, HSS, PCD and CBN cutting tools on 4- and 5-axis CNC robotic sharpening machines.

The Thionville site can manage your cutting tool stock (tool management). This highly personalized service is offered either in-house or directly on your production site.

In both cases, Evatec takes care of ordering, replenishment, delivery and installation in your workshops under a defined contract.
