WIDIA GTD - Innovation and Reliability for 145 Years

GTD Metal hole tapping



We are the productivity fanatics. We are the machining junkies. We live at the forefront of technology, always striving for the perfect blend of innovation and reliability. We’ve been breaking ground for 145 years. We invented the "Gun Tap" and helped develop the thread standard, but we’re more excited about what we’re doing today.

We’re about solutions, from short-run to high volume. We combine speed, power and precision with high performance, consistent quality and relentless innovation. You could say we’re a little bit different, and we’re okay with that. We got a new logo and a new energy driving us forward. We are primed for productivity, and we can’t wait to see what we do next.

Time well spent.
