27.03.2024 - Master Abrasives exhibiting at the Grinding Hub 2024

Master Abrasives UK will be exhibiting the full range of Master® products at the 2024 Grinding Hub exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany alongside its sister company, Master Abrasives Polska.

Master bonded abrasivesRepresentatives from both companies will be available on stand B01 in Hall 10 from 14-17th May to discuss the complete range of abrasives from the Master brand and how these products can improve productivity in various applications. Products being exhibited include high-quality grinding wheels and a complete range of complementary dressings products.

Since last exhibiting at a European engineering show, Master have introduced a complete range of super abrasive products which includes the precision internal range of Master vitrified CBN wheels.  Products include high performance wheels mounted on threaded or carbide shanks to suit the grinding of high precision components or those difficult to grind materials down to 1mm bore sizes.  The UK-owned company has been winning new business globally with this range of products and can fully support manufacturers with their long-established larger range of vitrified CBN and diamond wheels. 

The range of Master burrs includes their newest release, the HD cut, ideal for working on aluminium and non-ferrous materials. They give excellent stock removal, are good for blending cast lines and have a low-vibration, smooth running performance. This range will be stocked in a range of suitable sizes and will be available to view on the stand at the Grinding Hub.

Master Abrasives have been experts in grinding solutions for many years and their display of grinding wheel options at the Grinding Hub will be tailored to a variety of industries including aerospace, oil and gas and automotive. They offer a full range of grades in vitrified and resin bonds and specially designed products such as SAWPRO grinding wheels for cool cutting action when sharpening circular saws.

Paul Batson, Managing Director of Master Abrasives group of companies, commented: “We visited the exhibition in 2022 and decided then that this would be part of our promotional and communications strategy for 2024.  We are exhibiting at MACH 24 in the UK, STOM 24 in Poland, the location of our sister company, and this will be the focus for promoting our message not only in mainland Europe but globally.  I am really impressed with the list of exhibitors planning to be at the exhibition, it is great for engineering globally and for all us exhibitors to show off our portfolio.  We have a strong product focus and will be looking to strengthen our network of agents especially in Germany and France.  I would encourage any parties interested in representing a strong global brand to come and talk to us – I will be at the show all week with my colleagues so come over and say hello.  I’m confident that we will come across even more opportunities this year to grow the Master brand even more internationally.”

Paul and SlawomirNow with a sister company located in Bielsko-Biala Poland, Master Abrasives Polska is ideally located to serve both the Polish and European markets for the Master group. Paul Batson added, “Slawomir Klisiewicz is leading the new company in Poland as National Sales Manager. He has many years of experience in the abrasives industry and will be available to discuss customer requirements at the Grinding Hub. The Polish company has just been appointed an official 3M precision product distributor for Poland which mirrors the UK company and we are all very excited about this opportunity – 3M’s high technology grinding products sit very comfortably with our own Master range of products – ensuring we continue to offer all our customers a complete solution for industry.” 

Paul concluded, “After over 50 years of successful trading, we have the experience needed to match the application with the most effective process and products. We have used our knowledge to develop the products in the Master brand, which is now recognised internationally for high-quality abrasives. We look forward to working with new potential distributors on helping customers to improve productivity in other parts of the world following the Grinding Hub exhibition – we look forward to seeing you there.”
