Who we are

Over the years, CMT has been making massive investments in the most advanced technology in CNC machine equipment and in innovative software to manufacture woodworking cutting tools.
Furthermore, CMT has hired highly skilled engineers and operators to manage the production operations. The result, the entire woodworking cutting tool manufacturing process is completely automated.
CMT products are manufactured for industrial applications and woodworking cutting tools are utilized by world leading furniture makers, kitchen manufacturers and CNC machinery manufacturers.
Because of our intense investment in advanced production technology, CMT is able to offer industrial tooling at an affordable price to an ever growing following of cabinet makers, contractors and woodworkers as well our manufacturing customers.
The CMT Orange Tools® brand is known throughout the world woodworking community as the premium brand of woodworking cutting tools.
The CMT mission is to continually improve our quality while offering the woodworking world the finest quality at affordable prices.



We are proud to be CMT Orange Tools!



As the story goes, we began small. We also put orange color surface coating on our tools, then we put our tools on the market and soon our orange tools were all over the world.
Now, any woodworker anywhere in the world can tell you that orange tools means CMT, and that CMT means quality. Here at CMT we know we produce quality.
You should too. That’s why we have trademarked the color orange on woodworking tools - it’s your guarantee that you are getting a genuine high-quality CMT product.
Everything starts with a clear idea and having the potential to express it. We have both.
At CMT, our technical department uses the best of both worlds – computer technology and hands-on experience - to engineer and design each tool so that it performs flawlessly each time you use it, and to guarantee that you’ll be using it for a long, long time.

Turning a design into a finished product means finding the right material that will do the job and that lives up to the specifications set out in the design - quality performance from the final product depends on it.
When it comes to selecting raw materials, we don’t cut corners. At CMT, we know that high quality tools come only from high quality raw materials, so we use only solid bar stock steel and specially formulated micrograin carbide to manufacture our bits and blades.
Like we said, it’s not just what you do but how you do it.
Over the years we have continuously invested in the latest technology in CNC machining equipment and innovative software to manufacture our tools.
The result is that now our entire manufacturing process, from turning and milling the steel shanks to brazing and sharpening the carbide cutting tips, is completely automated.
And since a machine is only as intelligent at the person using it, everything is operated by specifically trained operators.
A tool simply wouldn’t be a CMT tool if it didn’t have the trademark orange color non-stick PTFE coating on it. This unique industrial- strength surface coating is designed to withstand the physical stresses the tool undergoes during use while protecting it from residue build-up and burning.
And we really like the orange color too.
Nobody’s perfect, but we’re trying.
CMT uses rigorous quality control programs and the latest generation machining equipment to ensure that each bit has been manufactured with precision and accuracy and that it will give the long-lasting performance you expect from a CMT orange tool. Our tools are manufactured in compliance with European Standard EN 847 published and enforced by the CEN (European Committee for Standardisation).

CMT filters and purifies its water using a reverse osmosis system located inside the plant. Also the oil used in grinding and machining our tools must be clean and absolutely free of contaminants. Clean oil, after enough use, gets dirty, so we filter and reprocess dirty oil on the premises.
This is our way of guaranteeing the quality of the oil we use, as well as contributing to help protect the environment.
