Metalex 2019: German metalworking industry exhibits in Thailand – with VSM participation

Not only is the Metalex trade fair in Bangkok the largest trade fair for the industry in the ASEAN region, this year it was also a particularly interesting showcase for its German exhibitors: Under the heading of “German High Tech in Metalworking”, Germany was the official partner country for Metalex 2019, thanks to an initiative of the German Machine Tool Builders’ Association (VDW), the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry (AUMA). It goes without saying that VSM was there once again, from 20 to 23 November, presenting perfect solutions for all types of grinding tasks in metal processing and machining.

VSM quality makes a splash in Bangkok
In order to demonstrate the performance of "made in Germany" abrasives to the mostly Thai trade visitors at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC), VSM had several cabins and grinding machines in action, from angle grinders to backstand grinders. VSM ACTIROX and VSM ZIRCONIA ALUMINIA attracted the most attention: "On the one hand, the visitors were again enthusiastic about the speed and the stock removal that ACTIROX achieves with its particularly aggressive grinding. This brought some interesting contacts, for example from the turbine industry", reports Methat Phansri, Application Engineer with VSM's Thailand representative office. The AF799 and AF890 fibre discs were used for the live demonstration.

The VSM ZIRCONIA ALUMINIA ZK713X abrasive belt, on the other hand, made a big impression at Metalex with a live demonstration of its use for deburring sheet metal. It offers excellent grinding performance in the long term, with continuous self-sharpening, and is therefore ideal for processing steel and steel alloys, cast iron and non-ferrous metals such as aluminium, brass and bronze. "We had a great deal to offer at our Metalex stand and, as a result, there was a lot going on. A real success", says Methat Phansri.
