The history of CTI (Cincinnati Tyrolit) dates back to 1952: At that time, Cincinnati Tyrolit was part of the Milacron Inc organization. The Milacron organization recognized the need to support its machine tool business with precision abrasives and began making abrasives on their own. The strengths of the company name in the machine tool business helped the abrasive business grow rapidly into one of the industry leaders. For over fifty years CTI has been helping their customers achieve the maximum grinding potential for all their grinding needs.

One of the greatest strengths of TYROLIT lies in the field of precision machining. TYROLIT offers a comprehensive solutions package for the grinding components that must comply with predefined standards regarding dimensions, geometric profiles or surface quality. In such cases grinding and profiling tools using aluminium oxide, silicon carbide or super-abrasives such as cubic boron nitride (CBN) or diamond are used as cutting agent.
