Semiconductor technology enables a quality leap in the machining of steel –VM (vitrified micron) technology

The grinding of components for diesel and petrol injection traditionally represents the elite in series steel machining. Current requirements for significant improvements in exhaust gas values now require a further boost to innovation regarding the bore and tight fit achieved by grinding operations.

Retirement meeting at Meister

On February 25th, eleven interested retirees followed the invitation of the Meister Abrasives AG for a factory tour. To the delight of the organizers, people from different eras met: from the time of tapes production to the pure production of corundum grinding wheels to todays super abrasive era.

The new CEO Frederik Dresen introduced himself and explained how the company is organized in Switzerland and internationally. Chairman of the Board, Dr. Peter Beyer and production manager Dominic Heiniger then led through the various production areas. During this, they enjoyed  very interested and attentive listeners.

In the final discussion, everyone agreed that Meister Abrasives AG had undergone enormous development. The product range is future-oriented. A lot was invested in machines, production plants and buildings. New product lines are beginning to bear fruit and will compensate other areas.

Like various other trade fairs, GrindTec 2020 has now been postponed due to the new developments around SARS-CoV-2 (previously 2019-nCoV, known as Coronavirus).

Made in one piece - full layer stationary dresser

This newly developed stationary dresser, with proven hybrid technology, is constructed from a single monolithic abrasive layer and therefore does not require a steel base. By this measure, a detachment of the layer from the steel base can be prevented and process reliability is increased. In addition, the dresser is reinforced with CVD inserts to withstand the highest loads. Our customer advisors are pleased to inform you about the further advantages of this new dresser, and we look forward to your inquiry.

A special interest aroused the microscope of the Quality System where the granular structure of products will be examined and an increase in size up to 2’000x is visible. Also the highly developed technology enabling a smooth workflow was very impactful.

The tour through the production hall visualised all necessary steps and sites until the products of Meister finally reach our customers.
