VSM in Krakow at EUROTOOL

From 28th to 30th November 2018, VSM exhibited its wide range of abrasives for high stock removal and perfect surface finishes at the 22nd EUROTOOL, the international trade show for metalworking in Krakow.

The trade visitors, who were mainly from Poland, took a keen interest in the VSM COMPACTGRAIN series, especially in the new VSM CERAMICS Plus and CERAMICS products for challenging grinding operations. One of these products is the extremely sturdy CERAMICS Plus grinding belt XK885Y with TOP SIZE: The micro-crystalline ceramic grain with optimized self-sharpening effect generates very high stock removal when grinding high-alloy steel, and subsequently reduces the grinding costs. The addition VSM TOP SIZE coat with grinding-active additives ensures a cool and aggressive cut.

An increase in stock removal of up to 30 % for superalloys

"The visitors’ focus was on the grinding belt VSM XP780 CERAMICS Plus on a heavy paper backing", according to VSM Product Manager Krzysztof Stoj. The new series has been designed for wide and narrow belts on high-alloy steels which are subjected to high contact pressure. Thanks to the exposure of fresh cutting edges which are generated continuously, the service life of the belt is enhanced and the amount of stock removal increased by up to 30 % when grinding superalloys.

With some 10,000 visitors, the EUROTOOL on the site of the EXPO in Krakow is one of the largest trade shows for the metalworking industry in Eastern and Central Europe.
