VSM at Blechexpo 2019

Once every two years, Blechexpo beckons visitors to the trade fair halls in Stuttgart, and this year, once again, all the leading companies involved in sheet metal production were there. From 5 to 8 November, some intensive networking took place at VSM’s stand in Hall 7 – and VSM’s solutions relating to the entire grinding process generated a great deal of shoptalk.

The leading trade fair in Stuttgart is an absolute must-attend event for VSM and for anyone who is anyone in sheet metal processing.   Sales Director for Germany René Vogt and his team were pleased to welcome interested trade fair guests as well as numerous regular customers to their stand and to present the latest VSM products in more detail.

Flat surface grinding in the limelight
The focus this year was on flat surface grinding and the corresponding solutions, namely VSM ILUMERON, COMPACTGRAIN and ACTIROX The trade fair stand offered numerous opportunities for visitors to find out more about the entire grinding process, from rough grinding through to intermediate and finish grinding. "Using interactive touchscreens, our visitors were able to immerse themselves in each process step and they took full advantage of this opportunity", reports René Vogt.

Once again, the highlight – also at Blechexpo – was ACTIROX. VSM’s latest generation of ceramic grain abrasives makes extremely aggressive grinding possible thanks to its geometrically shaped ceramic grains, and it achieves a 50 percent increase in stock removal compared to the previous leading ceramic grain abrasives. VSM COMPACTGRAIN is the ideal choice for intermediate and finish grinding. This long-term abrasive achieves a uniform surface quality with very even wear behaviour and scratch patterns and consistent stock removal. For finish grinding, VSM ILUMERON provides the perfect solution. It offers a previously unattainable surface quality when grinding sheet metal, thin sheets and square steel – and impressed the predominantly German visitors with its extremely high gloss finishes.

Satisfied visitors, satisfied exhibitor: "From our point of view, Blechexpo 2019 was an extremely successful event. We had some especially interesting technical discussions and our new products never failed to make a convincing impression", summarises René Vogt.
