VSM at the ITM 2017

From 6th to 9th June 2017, VSM exhibited its quality abrasives at the ITM in Poland for the twentieth consecutive time. The international trade show which focuses on machine tools, high-precision tools, power transmission and surface engineering was, once again, a great success for VSM.

"There are a large number of machine manufacturers at the ITM who showcase their innovations. The customers who came to see us on our stand are interested in tooling and grinding solutions. Their enquiries were mainly about applications for stainless steel and aluminium", explains Krzysztof Stoj, Product Manager of PFERD-VSM Sp. z o.o.

VSM displayed the fibre discs VSM CERAMICS Plus XF885 and VSM CERAMICS XF870 with self-sharpening effect. Both of these ceramic fibre discs stand out thanks to high stock removal and a considerably enhanced service life. The additional TOP SIZE coat with its grinding additives reduces the temperature in the contact area. Compared to other ceramic grain discs, the fibre disc XF885 yields up to 100 % increase in service life as a result of yet another improvement of the self-sharpening effect. When grinding aluminium, this fibre disc achieves a particularly high output. Another product on display was the aluminia zirconia fibre disc ZF714, which, thanks to optimum flexibility and cool cutting properties, lends itself to grinding tough materials.
