Olson Carbide, Inc. is a family owned and operated carbide insert manufacturer. Our insert style capabilities range from milling, turning, threading, grooving, to completely custom metalworking applications and everything in between.

Established in 1992 Olson Carbide, Inc. opened shop in Fraser Michigan. Shortly after the customer base and business grew warranting the purchase of our first piece of CNC equipment in 2000. The continued growth and expansion of equipment led to the need of a larger facility. In 2010 Olson Carbide moved to a 7,300 square foot facility located in Chesterfield, MI.

Our commitment to servicing our customers has always been at the core of our identity. We strive for perfection when it comes to meeting our customers' needs. Whether it be a quick turn around on a rush order or helping with a custom application, we are here to make it happen. Our commitment to quality is what sets us apart from others in the industry. We are focused on the continuous improvement of all our products and processes, to ensure our customers are getting the best possible fit for their specific application.

The ability to help find the best solution for our customers’ specific machining applications is just one of the many values that separate us from our competition. We offer a wide range of grades, coatings, edge preps, and chipbreaker configurations to aid in optimizing your process. Our equipment matched with the ability and dedication of our employees allows us to produce some of the most complex inserts around.

We are not limited to standard product catalog, which allows us to optimize our customers’ tool life and cycle times.
