Ceramics department of CHEVAL FRERES

HARDEX was created in 2006 from the merger of Cheval Frères’ hard materials machining department (UMD department) and a ceramic powder shaping plant.

Thanks to the UMD department’s thirty years’ experience in machining hard materials, HARDEX is now a key player in very high-performance ceramic materials.

Since 2006, HARDEX has been part of the IMI Group, an independent family-owned industrial group.

With the benefit of modern machinery and control over the entire production chain, the HARDEX teams can offer you finished, innovative products tailored to your needs.
