A strong appearance at METALEX 2017

With more than 90,000 visitors from all metalworking industries in Thailand, METALEX in Bangkok is one of the most important trade shows in South-East Asia. VSM exhibited at the show from 22th – 25th November 2017 and displayed its most recent abrasives.

The new CERAMICS products, which VSM exhibited together with its long-term partner Kings Brite Co. Ltd., once again took centre stage in the Thai capital, Bangkok: "The self-sharpening ceramic grain abrasives from the VSM CERAMICS Plus and VSM CERAMICS series clearly proved to be a special Highlight", stated Anek Thampiratwong of Kings Brite Co. Ltd. On display and tested "in action" by inspired trade visitors were the abrasive belts VSM CERAMICS Plus XK880Y, VSM CERAMICS XK870X and XK760X on a robust polyester backing. When machining high-alloy steels and other extremely hard surfaces, the CERAMICS range for high stock removal feature an impressive combination of aggressive grinding coupled with extremely long service life for a wide range of applications.

Other products on display for the mainly Thai visitors were: abrasive belts VSM SILICON CARBIDE CK722Y and VSM ZIRKONIA ALUMINA ZK713X. The tried and tested ALUMINIUM OXIDE is another fine abrasive for long-lasting, high performance in conjunction with continuous self-sharpening. It is especially well-suited for the ultimate machining of steel and steel alloys, cast iron and non-ferrous metals such as aluminium, brass and bronze.

In 2018, METALEX will take place again from November 21st – 24th. VSM intends to have a presence at this show.
