31.03.2022 - Master Abrasives exhibiting at MACH 2022

Master Abrasives will be exhibiting at the renowned MACH exhibition at the NEC, Birmingham from 4-8th April alongside its partners, Micromatic Grinding Technologies and Alex Machine Tools.

MACH 2022 is bringing an array of new technologies and machinery demonstrated under power, including two machines on Master Abrasives' stand #540 in Hall 6: the PLUTO-18 by Micromatic Grinding Technologies and the NH-500 by Alex Machine Tools. PLUTO-18 will be dry cycling and NH-500 will be a static display on the stand alongside examples of other key products in the company portfolio.

Ian Meredith, Applications Engineering Manager and stand manager for Master Abrasives comments: “This year at MACH we have a wider range of machinery and equipment available, and our expertise is even stronger. Therefore, we’ve gone for a larger stand this year and made sure we have a prominent location on a main aisle in Hall 6. Our team will be ready to answer any application questions and arrange for a full grinding demonstration back in Master Abrasives showroom.”

PLUTO-18 is a CNC grinder specially designed by Micromatic Grinding Technologies to focus on compactness, high-performance and provide an economical grinding solution. It is best suited to produce highly accurate small components and can perform both plunge and traverse grinding operations. Its customised user-friendly graphics screen helps ease in machine setting and operation.

NH-500 is a surface grinder by Alex Machine Tools which aims to preserve precision through the life of the machine, providing superior stability even at extreme ends of working range. It is especially suited for quick flat grinding of workpieces and has a maximum wheel outer diameter of 200mm (and width 50mm). Surface grinding models are available with the option for CNC controls for automatic grinding cycle including wheel dressing and can be customised for specific application needs.

Measuring equipment by Innovative Automation Products will be available for viewing at the Master Abrasives stand as the appointed UK and Ireland representatives. Out of their product range of air and height gauges and profile projectors, a 2D height gauge will be on display at MACH. 

Ian Meredith concludes, “We have a dedicated applications engineering team available to provide technical advice at MACH. We can present a cost-effective, high-productive solution including the machine, the right abrasives, coolant nozzles and dressers for a high-quality finished part.”
