KOMET® GROUP innovates cutting tools using metal 3D printing technology

By Manufacturing 12/02/2021

KOMET® GROUP is using Renishaw metal additive manufacturing technology to produce new ranges of innovative cutting tools.

As well as allowing special cutters to be produced more quickly, the use of additive manufacturing enables more complex shapes to be generated, both for the external shape of the tooling and for the internal cooling channels. 

Germany’s KOMET GROUP is one of the world’s leading suppliers of precision cutting tools and has supplied innovation to the machining industry for almost 100 years. The Group, which has its headquarters in Besigheim, currently employs more than 1,500 people, including its subsidiaries, and is represented in around 50 countries.
