Promising MetalMadrid

The most significant industrial trade fair in Central Spain, MetalMadrid, celebrated its anniversary and brought together companies from the metalworking industry in the Spanish capital for the 10th time, from 15th to 16th November 2017. One of these companies was VSM, which exhibited its latest product highlights.

"Our COMPACTGRAIN series and, in particular our latest CERAMICS products, are exciting and brand new innovations in the market", Sergi Pitarch, Executive Manager of VITEX ABRASIVOS, VSM’s representation in Spain, happily noted. The trade visitors who were mainly from Central Spain as well as from Southern and Eastern Spain benefited from this opportunity to learn about the latest VSM products and to receive professional application expertise.

The self-sharpening ceramic grain abrasives of the VSM CERAMICS Plus series, which feature an extremely high stock removal when machining high-alloy steels and other extremely hard surfaces, immediately impressed the visitors thanks to their  excellent performance. One of them is the CERAMICS Plus fibre disc XF885: Its unique microcrystalline structure accounts for a much more subtle breaking down of the grain and produces much sharper edges. This in turn leads to lower temperatures in the contact area and a much longer service life of the tool. This is why XF885 is the perfect choice for machining materials such as aluminium.

Among the exhibited products on the VSM stand were the abrasive belts VSM CERAMICS Plus XK880Y and XK885Y from the CERAMICS Plus series. The products featured from the COMPACTGRAIN series included the KK712X belt and the abrasive disc KP712K.

"In terms of the quality of visitors and discussions that took place, MetalMadrid, for us, was one of the best and most promising trade shows over the last four to five years", concluded Sergi Pitarch.

The next MetalMadrid will take place from 26th – 27th September 2018. VSM will be exhibiting again.
