Successful Presentation from Hermes Abrasives at CIMT 2017
As one of the four famous World International Machine Tool Exhibitions along with the EMO (European International Machine Tool Exhibition), IMTS (Chicago International Machine Tool Fair of America) and JIMTOF (Japan International Machine Tool Exhibition), China International Machine Tool Show (CIMT) is the most prestigious international machine tool exhibition in China.
This year was held on April 17-22 at China International Exhibition Center (new venue) in Beijing. The 6 days’ exhibition, theme show and technical forum attracted 121,069 visitors and 1,639 exhibitors from 28 countries around the world.
Hermes obtained many new contacts at this show, not only presented its broad range of bonded abrasives products, but also presented its new products that many visitors were particularly interested in:
- Such as VITRA (the new high-performance low-fired bond developed by Hermes for the latest generation of Hermes ceramic-bonded precision abrasives),
- Hermes CBNi grinding wheels which are equipped with a data chip and which will continue to drive forward the automation of customers’ grinding processes, and
- Hermes 2-Layer-Worm Wheel (combining grinding (vitrified) and polishing (resin) zones).
- Another highlight is Hermes Carbon Fiber Body Wheel, compared with traditional wheel, this type of fiber body will significantly reduce weight of CBN wheels.
“CIMT 2017 was a very important and exciting milestone for Hermes during which we could proudly present our latest bonded and coated abrasives solutions to a very broad market. It was also the chance to meet many existing and new partners, from China and from other countries. Many thanks for having been so, so many to visit us!” said Antoine Desbordes, General Manager of Hermes China, summarizing the trade fair with satisfaction.
CIMT is and will remain one of most important platforms for Hermes to present its abrasives and grinding solutions. The next involvement in CIMT2019 is already a firm date.
