2017 Hermes Technical Seminar was held successfully in Shanghai
“Economic Belt Grinding of Tubes, Rods and Wires – 2017 Hermes Technical Seminar” was successfully held in the Crown Plaza and at Hermes Abrasives in Shanghai on March 10th 2017.
The seminar consisted in two parts, the conference in the Hotel Crown Plaza and a grinding test demonstration including a plant tour at Hermes Abrasives (Shanghai).
The aim of this seminar was to present Hermes’ grinding technology for tubes, rods and wires, and sharing modern grinding solutions for varieties of applications from customers. Meanwhile, Hermes invited experts from companies Loeser (Market leaders of centerless belt grinding machines), Oemeta (Coolant manufacturer) and Hilzinger-Thum (Contact wheel and polishing wheel manufacturer). These guest speakers explained the latest technology development of their products and were open to discuss the influence of cooling agents, modern grinding machines and contact wheels as part of the grinding system.
Experts from Hermes China and Hermes Germany gave very detailed information about the centerless grinding technology and the use of the new developed grinding belts.
The onsite grinding test on a Loeser centerless grinder took place in the Hermes Abrasives TEC (Training and Engineering Center). Customers could see the final quality in grinding with the complete Hermes abrasive belt program for centerless grinding. Customers had shown its strong interest in the modern product types of MERCURIT RB 590 Y, RB 595 Y, RB 598 Y and HERMESIT RB 535 Y and finally the Hermes Cork products which showed an outstanding fine finish on the stainless tubes and gave us a very positive response.
