VSM at Metal & Steel

VSM displayed an extensive range of abrasive products for metalworking at the 7th Metal & Steel Exhibition which was held in Cairo from 09 to 11 March 2017. The main focus was on the VSM CERAMICS Plus series XP780 and XF885 with improved self-sharpening effect as well as on VSM fibre discs.

The XP780 is a heavy paper-backed grinding belt with a micro-crystalline ceramic grain structure.  XP780 comes into its own when machining high-alloyed steels thanks to an aggressive cut and a very long service life.

The fibre disc XF885 has been optimised for the machining of high-alloyed steels and other materials with extremely hard surfaces. It features an enhanced service life combined with aggressive though cool cutting characteristics. The additional grinding-active layer TOP SIZE reduces the temperature in the contact area.

The international, professional setting was conducive to holding many trade discussions and consultations.

Metal & Steel is one of the largest trade shows for the metalworking industry in the Middle East and North Africa. More than 10,000 trade visitors gained information about the latest industry trends and technical innovations from 250 exhibitors.
