From November 15 to 18, 2016, PFERD-VITEX, VSM’s representative in Switzerland, was at PRODEX with new grinding solutions and new tools. The trade fair, which is considered the leading industrial trade fair in Switzerland, saw a slight increase compared to 2014 with 330 exhibitors receiving over 30,000 visitors.

A polishing booth and display table with a sunken centre section to accommodate mounted abrasive tools and related objects, for a unique hands-on experience, were among the biggest visitor attractions on the PFERD-VITEX stand. A large variety of different products was presented in the polishing booth, such as the high-performance fibre discs VSM CERAMICS Plus XF885 and VSM ALUMINIUM OXIDE KF808. Both products ensure a high stock removal rate for metalworking applications. VSM CERAMICS Plus abrasives are synonymous with an enhanced self-sharpening effect when processing high-alloyed steels under high pressure. VSM ALUMINIUM OXIDE is a universal grain suitable for processing metal, wood and plastics.
Products by both VSM and PFERD were set up in the sunken hands-on display for trade show visitors to sample the products in person and to facilitate the identification of possible solutions on the stand.

Participating in the trade show turned out to be a great success for PFERD-VITEX. The stand was very well attended and lots of opportunities for technical discussions and consultancy services arose. The quality and decision-making power of the trade visitors deserve a special mention.

The next PRODEX will be held in Basel again from November 20 to 23, 2018.
