BD&T UG & CoKG is a start-up company formed by a group of experts from the diamond tool industry. The company is situated in Celle, Germany, on top of the German oil fields. All of the associates of the company have more than 25 years’ experience in all aspects of diamond tools for cutting and drilling concrete, reinforced concrete, natural stone and for exploration drilling in mining.
The founder of the company had developed new technologies to improve manufacturing efficiencies, which lead to significant savings in the cost of manufacturing. In addition to this, a new technology was developed to position the diamonds in a 3D pattern in a matrix-like distribution in the sintered diamond cutting elements of the diamond tools, otherwise known as NT-Technology.
The combination of several factors makes BD&T and its products unique:
