EUROGUSS in Nuremberg was the international meeting place for the die casting industry from January 16th to 18th. VSM were there exhibiting its range of ceramic grain abrasives for maximum stock removal and an enhanced service life.

The VSM CERAMICS Plus and CERAMICS ranges by VSM are the number one choice for deburring and machining of castings. Numerous trade visitors were able to familiarize themselves with these premium abrasives at the VSM stand in Hall 6 at EUROGUSS 2018, Europe’s largest trade fair for pressure die casting and die casting procedures. “Our highlight was the VSM CERAMICS Plus fibre disc XF885. Our customers were impressed with its performance during the live demonstration on the stand. They were able to test XF885 and to see it for themselves“, commented René Vogt, Head of Sales Germany, pleased with the results.

Unlike traditional ceramic grain abrasives, the new VSM CERAMICS Plus series features a much improved self-sharpening effect when machining die-cast aluminium, magnesium and zinc. Thanks to the micro-crystalline structure of the abrasive the breaking down of the grain is a much more subtle process, leaving much sharper edges on the grain. The result is an aggressive but still cool cut, maximum stock removal and a twofold increase in the service life of the product.

Perfect surfaces for castings
Other products in the VSM product portfolio for the trade fair were VSM ALUMINIUM OXIDE, VSM ZIRCONIA ALUMINA and VSM NON-WOVEN, all of which are premium abrasives for a perfect surface and the efficient machining of die-cast workpieces.

With 15,000 visitors and 641 exhibitors, of whom more than half came from overseas, EUROGUSS 2018 set a new record for visitor numbers.
