About us

Rubis has been making precision tweezers for over 70 years. In the beginning, the tweezers were used exclusively in the Swiss watch industry. Only extremely precise and high-quality tweezers could be used to assemble the sensitive mechanical movements of well-known manufacturers such as Patek Philippe, Cartier or Rolex. This gave rise to an independent handicraft tradition at Rubis, which was characterized by a pronounced sense of precision and the beauty of the shape that the Swiss watchmakers have always practiced.

Rubis soon became the market leader. Tweezers were not only made for the watch industry, but also for other demanding applications in electronics and microelectronics, robotics, telecommunications, space travel, research, biogenetics, pharmaceuticals, laboratories, surgery, microscopy, chemistry, medicine, biology and microbiology. Global companies such as Motorola, General Electric, Siemens, Toshiba, Hewlett Packard and renowned research institutions such as the Fraunhofer Institute and the University of Zurich have been working with Rubis tweezers for years.
