Successful Hermes presentation of innovative grinding tools, at the GrindTec 2018
25% more trade fair contacts compared to 2016 / Focus topic: "Digitization of the grinding process" / For the 10th time in succession "Preferred Supplier" of the Schaeffler Group
Hermes Schleifmittel GmbH can look back on a successful participation in the GrindTec, the world's leading trade fair for grinding technology, from 14 to 18 March in Augsburg.
Under the motto "Hermes Abrasives - The One-Stop Solution" Hermes presented its comprehensive and widely diversified product range of precision grinding tools, for industrial grinding processes.
The focus was on product innovations such as high-precision, fine grain grinding abrasives that achieve improved surface qualities with Rz values of <1µm. The "intelligent" Hermes CBNi grinding wheels with RFID chips for wireless data transfer between the grinding tool and the grinding machine also proved to be a real crowd puller.
The benefits are obvious:
- Automation of the grinding process
- Improved process reliabiltiy
- Simplification of Tool Management
The new Hermes light CORE base bodies for CBN grinding wheels with a weight injection of up to 71% compared to conventional steel base bodies also met with great interest.
Over 25% more trade fair contacts
At the end of the fair, Hermes experts from sales, application technology and research & development were able to book over 25% more trade fair contacts. Among them more than half were new contacts, especially from abroad.
"We are pleased about the many stimulating discussions and the productive exchange with customers and machine manufacturers worldwide", says Hermes CEO Dr. Jan Cord Becker. "The great interest shown by our customers confirms that we are on the right and competitive path with our innovative products, in conjunction with the important future topic of Industry 4.0."
