QUEEN BEE – Reliable machining of steels up to 58 HRC, titanium, stainless steel alloys and special materials

Dependable, efficient, QUEEN BEE: With this new tool family, ZECHA Hartmetall-Werkzeugfabrikation GmbH has taken a major step towards process reliability. With adapted flute and micro geometries for good chip removal and cutting free from vibrations, the machining of titanium, stainless steel alloys, and special materials up to 2,200 N/mm2 as well as the pre-milling of soft steel components up to 58 HRC with the highest service life and maximum precision become reality.


The targeted homogenization of the cutting edges with edge preparation reduces the notch effect and breakout tendency and improves coating adhesion at the cutting zone. Whether in tool and mold making, parts production, or medical technology, the center cut ensures excellent surface finishes for all QUEEN BEE tools, even in flat areas, in dry as well as wet milling. 

The ball nose end mills and end mills with corner radius, available in dimensions from 0.8 to 12.0 mm in diameter, are unique in their interplay of precision and quality. Solid tool attributes, coupled with the latest WAD coating technology, increase service life while minimizing tool changes. With the tightest tolerances, along with selected carbide grades and consistent carbide qualities, the QUEEN BEE tools master every challenge with stability and precision. 

ZECHA Hartmetall-Werkzeugfabrikation GmbH

ZECHA Hartmetall-Werkzeugfabrikation GmbH has been a pioneer and trendsetter in the field of micro cutting, stamping and forming tools for over half a century. The company's origins in the chronograph industry can be seen not only in its uncompromising specialization in the producing miniature tools of the highest precision, but also in its special tool solutions.
Precision and quality are key for the international employment in different industries, such as, for example, in medical and dental technology, the chronograph industry, automotive industry, or in tool and mould making. Experts in the company's own research and development department are constantly developing groundbreaking geometries and tools for sophisticated applications and cutting-edge materials.
In addition, tool reproducibility is also guaranteed even for years on account of the life number stamped at the end of the shaft of every tool.
Modern CNC machines, high-end measuring and testing technologies and carefully selected hard metals from leading manufacturers as well as an intensive cooperation with our customers and partners ensure the exceptional perfection of our Tools.
