The multi-million-dollar investment will significantly expand E6’s capacity for the manufacture of wear-resistant tungsten carbide tools and enable the company to service its customers more efficiently thanks to faster production speeds at its Burghaun, Germany, facility. More integrated control steps will also lead to an improvement in E6’s high-tech product quality, while the line will also create greater flexibility due to the ability to address the manufacture of E6’s entire road milling range. Developed with expert collaboration, the line will automate the production of carbide tools.

For decades E6 has been supplying the market with high-quality road milling bits, used in a range of diverse and bespoke applications, including agriculture and forestry machinery, mineral processing and metal forming solutions. E6 bits, and the MasterGrade™ range in particular, are recognised worldwide for their premium quality and performance, providing customers with a reliable long-term solution that reduces total cost of operation and contributes to improved safety.

Markus Bening, Sales Director for Road, Mining and Wear at E6, said: “Thanks to over 70 years of expertise and proprietary technology, E6 is a global market leader in the industry and the manufacture and supply of road milling bits represent an important component of the company’s future strategy.”

“Innovation has always been at the heart of E6’s success and this move will strengthen the company’s already established position in the market. The line will increase flexibility and supply capacity while, crucially, delivering competitive advantage to new and existing customers on a global scale.”
