High-Quality Tungsten Carbide Products

If tool life, wear resistance, “staying on the edge”, and outperformance are your benchmarks, we have a lot to offer! Ultra Carbide is committed to the North American market, with warehouses in Michigan and Ontario. Our focus is on high-performance tungsten carbide grades and carbide rods with or without coolant ducts.

Patented extrusion technology, innovative products, and grade development, along with the high level of training of our employees and extensive automation enable us to offer you substantial price-performance advantages for high performance carbides. While focusing on coolant-fed rods for the cutting tool industry, our service and expertise go beyond just offering carbide!

Our manufacturing facilities have been supplying leading cutting tool manufacturers in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Asia for over 25 years. Ultra Carbide is directly connected and affiliated with our two German manufacturing plants:  Berlin Carbide in Berlin, and as of January 2005, our fully owned Konrad Friedrichs GmbH & Co. KG in Kulmbach.

This constellation offers our customers supply chain safety and significant improvements in terms of availability and lead times — good reasons to reconsider single sourcing! Dealing with multiple sources is a cost and time factor also. Ultra Carbide can provide all these benefits as a one source with two separately operated carbide plants.
