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.


Raw material: first class, stainless steel

Each pair of tweezers is individually manufactured and tested to guarantee first-class Swiss quality. All parts are made of acid-resistant surgical steel. They can thus be disinfected or sterilised in acids and cleaned in an autoclave. Thanks to the steel quality and the ergonomically perfect shape, the tweezers do not become slack and they retain their flexibility and tension for years, which allows easy handling and prevents hand fatigue. The latest technological knowledge and applications are carefully brought to perfection with our many years of experience and our traditional craft.

The manufacturing process with its constantly new technologies has never been as important, complex and fascinating as it is today. The quality of the Rubis products is the result of the following combinations: state-of-the-art technology, know-how, permanent adaptation of the production processes, cost-conscious automation, selected engineering paired with traditional craftsmanship, decades of experience, the use of the best raw materials, the use of current materials, the application of industrial design and exclusive styling. All these elements make Rubis a class of its own.
