Perfect surface quality, high stock removal rates and a long service life – all this whilst maintaining a consistently high cutting performance. This is what distinguishes VSM abrasives and what is appreciated by our customers worldwide.
We understand abrasives
We understand abrasives purely means that we really know what abrasives are all about. Take advantage of the high level of specific expertise VSM holds worldwide and of its experience based on the close cooperation it has with 60 manufacturers of grinding machines. Our expertise encompasses the development of important basic materials such as backing cloths, synthetic resins and abrasive grains in-house for the production of our abrasives. It extends to visiting our customers to analyse existing applications and to ensure the proper interaction between grinding machine and workpiece. That is what VSM stands for – its expertise, perfectly encapsulated in this one word. We benefit from our considerable experience to minimise production times, enhance surface quality and reduce production costs.
Our Technical Center (TC), at the company’s headquarters in Hanover, provides multi-lingual product trainings, seminars on all aspects of grinding technology and comprehensive application testing for end users and dealers. more
