VSM success at Manufacturing Indonesia

With 35,000 visitors and more than 1,500 exhibitors from 39 countries – the Manufacturing Indonesia trade fair in Jakarta is one of the most influential trade fairs for investment goods in Asia, which is why VSM’s regional trade fair team set up shop there for four days, from 4 to 7 December 2019. As the fourth largest country in the world and the largest economy in Southeast Asia, Indonesia in an extremely interesting market. Most of the leading companies from production, machine construction and metal processing were there at the International Expo Center in Jakarta – and many of them came to the VSM stand for information on suitable grinding solutions.

Two highlights in the spotlight

Two product highlights were particularly in demand at the stand of VSM’s abrasives experts in Hall B2. The first was VSM STEARATE Plus, which was demonstrated as an XF733 disc in the grinding cabin. It combines the powerful VSM CERAMICS technology with an anti-adhesive STEARATE Plus layer that reduces undesirable chip adhesion when grinding non-ferrous metals.  This means less clogging, a longer service life and maximum stock removal, even after a long period of use.

The second highlight, which attracted the most attention, was VSM ACTIROX, which, in the form of AF799 and AF890 discs, gave a live demonstration of its full potential. With alloyed and unalloyed steels, stainless steels and carbon steels, the fibre discs achieve an unprecedented rate of stock removal thanks to their extremely aggressive action and fast grinding. This makes ACTIROX far superior to other ceramic grain abrasives: “The result is a much longer service life and increased productivity – convincing arguments that gave us an edge with our numerous visitors”, says Josef Sturm, Head of Representative Office Asia-Pacific, clearly pleased with the overall success of VSM’s trade fair results.
