The right abrasive for every abrasive cutting process

VSM abrasives are suitable for almost any cutting process. This includes flat surface grinding, cylindrical grinding, off-hand grinding and the use of hand-held machines, to name but a few cutting processes. This involves the processing of different materials, such as metal, steel, wood, glass, granite, synthetic materials and many more. Whether a large stock removal or a perfect scratch pattern is the required outcome, whether wood or metal are to be processed: VSM abrasives always put the finishing touches to your product. more

Working with partners in industry and in the commercial and trade sectors

VSM application engineers analyse our customers' grinding processes in any country and develop tailor-made grinding solutions adapted to their specific needs. VSM's tailored advice extends beyond the mere purchase of a product: Regular visits to our customers' premises is the key to an efficient co-operation based on trust. more

Quality abrasives Made in Germany

Due to its high degree of vertical integration, our manufacturing process provides us with a consistenly high quality of all manufactured abrasives. Quality assurance commences  with the standard of our raw materials. Instead of buying from other manufacturers, VSM develops and produces all important basic materials, such as backing cloths, synthetic resins and abrasive grains in-house, using only high quality preliminary products. VSM is one of a very few manufacturers of abrasives who have their own cloth treatment plant. VSM has been certified to ISO standard 9001 for many years. more

We know abrasives because we understand them

We understand abrasives purely means that we really know what abrasives are all about. Take advantage of the high level of specific expertise VSM holds worldwide and of its experience based on the close cooperation it has with 60 manufacturers of grinding machines. Our expertise encompasses the development of important basic materials such as backing cloths, synthetic resins and abrasive grains in-house for the production of our abrasives. It extends to visiting our customers to analyse existing applications and to ensure the proper interaction between grinding machine and workpiece. That is what VSM stands for – its expertise, perfectly encapsulated in this one word. We benefit from our considerable experience to minimise production times, enhance surface quality and reduce production costs.
Our Technical Center (TC), at the company's headquarters in Hanover, Germany, provides multi-lingual product trainings, seminars on all aspects of grinding technology and comprehensive application testing for end users and dealers. more
