Your partner for metal processing.
Founded in 1924 in Hamburg as a medium-sized family-run company, ARTIFEX quickly became popular with its domestic metal cleaning blocks. Today, we are one of the world‘s leading manufacturers of elastic bonded abrasives.
ARTIFEX offers you quality „Made in Germany“ and a fair price-performance ratio. Elastic bonded abrasives by ARTIFEX are used in steel mills, mould design and construction, the automotive industry, the medical engineering industry and the food and pharmaceutical industry.
You need tools to grind and polish hard to reach surfaces? Your surfaces are so fine that they need to be treated with special sensitivity? We produce the most varied sizes, shapes and materials. And if there is no matching tool for your individual requirements, our research department will develop it at the highest technological level.
Elastic grinding and polishing
Thanks to their flexibility, our tools adapt perfectly to the geometry of the workpiece and merely remove the roughness peaks from the surface. This increases the material contact area and significantly reduces the roughness depth - to less than 1qm (Rz). The open-pored structure ensures cool grinding and prevents clogging of the tool.
ARTIFEX EK 800 MFP
Process: Profile grinding with path adjustment
Machines: CNC gear grinding machines
Complete process in one clamping of the workpiece
Low risk of grinding burns
No geometric changes
Cutting off the peaks of the roughness profile
No further process or machinery necessary
With ARTIFEX EK 800 MFP you can achieve a surface roughness of Rz < 1 µm

Cutting edge preparation has long been an established production process for enhancing the performance of all major cutting device technologies.
The cutting edge preparation is used after tool grinding to reduce the micro-defects of the cutting edge resulting from this process and to produce a defined cutting edge form adapted to the subsequent cutting process.
Tools come finished from the CNC machine, no downstream process costs.
