    MDM Sales team is proud to present the full range of testing machines.
    Aim of these units is to provide the end-user with detailed information regarding the performance of their cut-off or grinding wheels, both resinoid bonded or vitrified/ceramic products.
    Smart and “easy-use” reports can be downloaded from the machines in order to have the best comparability between each kind of test. The mechanical precision of this equipment joined to a top quality accuracy of instruments guarantees a top-class laboratory for the examination of abrasive tools.


    Let us start our presentation from the most common but useful test: burst/speed. Standard version of this tester runs up to 32000 rpm but, in case of specific technical requirements, MDM is able to provide even machines with higher or lower speeds. The operator inside the burst chamber fixes the wheels, starts the machine and that’s it! The machine detects the breaking point and the reached speed. A series of extra-safeties assures the correct running. About vitrified and ceramic wheels, special designs of the machine according to size of wheels to be tested is offered to the buyer.



    Performance of abrasive discs: cut-off and grinding machines! The first one, called PTA, is a tester able to record all data concerning level and wear rate of wheels after a selected number of cuts. Concerning the control of grinding action of discs, PSA unit is the ideal instrument. An operator who leads these machines has the opportunity to set the test according to different variables like pressure of the grinders, current consumption, constant speed, different working axis setting etc.



    A dedicated chapter belongs to balancing units. This variable is more and more determinant in order to give quality and reliability to every kind of abrasive disc. MDM machines check the balance or unbalance of wheels thanks to a dedicated software able to provide both the value and the positioning on the surface of the unbalanced disc. This family of testers covers all the measures of cut-off and grinding wheels present in the market: from 100 up to 600 mm (4” to 24”) with thickness up to 8 mm (0,3”).


    Last but not the least, the speed tester dedicated to complying of safety rules UNI EN 12413:2011. This is the three sides loading where tests are settled as the norm says. Machine is available both in full automatic and manual version.

    Do not forget the opportunity to create a dedicated lab composed by two of the above-described testers, which are lead by a common interface. In this way, only one operator is fully engaged in the control and develop of the abrasive tools.

    This is just a short description of Maternini testing machinery and their main features.
    By contacting us, you will have the chance to discover in details our complete technical and commercial offer!

    Abrasivesworld attended the inauguration opening of Metaltech 2016 held in Putra World Trade Centre Malaysia. This is the 22nd Asean International Machine Tools and Metalworking Technology Exhibition that was held in conjunction with AutoMex. Both events occupied 6 halls and attracted quite an impressive number of exhibitors and visitors alike. A quick count adds up to about 700 exhibitors

    For visitors who are looking for related abrasives tool could be somewhat disappointed comparing to the earlier years during mid to late 90’s. Still there are exhibitors displaying abrasives accessories and bonded abrasives. Companies such as SK Abrasives and Ban Chu Leong Many displayed their abrasives accessories while Teem Well and Advance Abrasives & Thread Technology featured bonded wheels such as Anchor.

    2 coated abrasives manufacturer brand that were visible are Big Champion and VSM. While Big Champion and VSM were represented by Teem Well and Sohadu Industries respectively, VSM definitely has a prominent booth display in Hall 3 equipped with a demonstrating table – a draw to curious crowd.


    Therefore while there appears to have lesser abrasives exhibitors during MetalTech 2016, the exhibitors appears to have been benefitted the most in this case by gaining more attention from visitors.

    Abrasivesworld looks forward to the next MetalTech to be again held in Putra World Trade Centre Malaysia on the 24-27 May 2017.

    VSM Abrasives is proud to announce the addition of Ceramic PLUS to their Ceramic product lineup. VSM Ceramics have been designed to cut more aggressively than conventional abrasives, and are engineered for high rates of stock removal in metalworking applications. The Ceramic PLUS grain requires fewer belt changes, meaning reduced cost per part and an excellent cost/performance ratio.

    The breakdown of an abrasive grain is a significant factor in overall performance of a coated abrasive product. The new Ceramic PLUS grain is manufactured in a new way that results in a much finer crystalline structure. This unique mineral fracture provides the abrasive product with a longer life, and more aggressive grains with an improved self-sharpening effect. Significant performance advantages include a higher metal removal rate at faster cutting speeds with a lower grinding temperature and less friction.

    The Ceramic PLUS products, XK885Y and XK880Y, are available in a Polyester Y-Cloth backing (coarse up to 60 grit) and a Polyester X-Cloth backing (80 grit and finer). The XK885Y is suitable for high pressure, dry/wet grinding applications, while the XK880Y is suitable for medium pressure, dry/wet grinding applications.

    AbrasivesWorld visited the 3rd (ZhengZhou) International Abrasives & Grinding Exposition which was held on the 13th to 15th November 2015.

    This is the 2nd visit by AbrasivesWorld to ZhengZhou International Abrasives & Grinding exhibition. The last exhibition was held on the November 2013.

    While there are many “the same” compared to the earlier show, AbrasivesWorld is encouraged to see “many new” development in this exhibition.

    The same:

    • The 3rd International Abrasives & Grinding Exposition is held in the same ZhengZhou International Convention and Exposition Centre in Henan China.
    • The show still focus on key segments namely: Grains, Super-abrasives, Bonded abrasives and Coated abrasives.

    The new development:

    • Bigger hall. As a matter, it has expanded from previously 2 to 3 hall size.
    • Attracted more exhibitors with bigger booth size.
    • Appears to have more coated abrasives exhibitors.
    • Attracted international exhibitors such as Davide Maternini (Italy), SMA (Italy) and Sheldahl (USA). See below



    Interesting, this has also attracted new exhibition organiser that will set up similar exhibition in China in the coming months that focus in abrasives.

    The general conclusion AbrasivesWorld concludes is that despite the growing competition within the domestic market, there are still business opportunity in this dynamic industry.

    Organisation : Abrasives World
    Date : 01/07/2015
    Author : Abrasives World

    High quality and reliable UF equipment dedicated to the modern panel board industry

    IMEAS introduces an ultra finishing process for wood-fibre panels (MDF/HDF) and it is performed by means of an abrasive roll  (ScotchBrite™ type) which brushes the surface of the panel. The combination between the high number of revolutions and the oscillation of the roll produces a surface characterized by a very high homogeneity and low roughness.

    It is particularly suitable for panels which have to be laminated with light melamine papers or have to be used "at sight".
    The UltraFinishing™ unit is generally installed at the end of a calibrating/sanding line with 6-8 units and it is composed of 2 or 4 brushing heads opposite or asymmetric. The variety of abrasive rolls available allows to
    achieve a virtually infinite range of results.

    As a value added process, UltraFinishing™ machines allow to:
    - improve the surface appearance of the panel
    - produce a surface with reduced roughness and increased homogeneity
    - optimize the application of melamine papers.

    As abrasives tools are deployed in many machinery and automation process, Abrasivesworld spares no effort by visiting the recent Intermach – Subcon exhibition held in BITEC Bangkok, Thailand from 13th to 16th May 2015 and holds more than 500 exhibitors

    The exhibition was opened by Mr Chakramon Phasukhavanich, the Minister of Industry commenting that the show is now Asean’s largest International Industrial manufacturing and subcontracting exhibition and added: “Through these events, entrepreneurs will learn about the latest machine technology that can lower operating costs, increase competitiveness and support Asean’s bid to serve a key manufacturing base for supporting industries”.

    Abrasivesworld visited the show and find one prominent exhibitor that feature finishing solution. Led by Mr Anek, King Brite features a good range of abrasives, non-woven web, buffing wheels and machinery that focus on metal finishing. It even display a robotic arm to attract the attention of many passer-by visitors.

    There is also another abrasive booth that includes several companies each displaying their products.

    From an abrasives perspective, it’s somewhat disappointing to see lesser participants for exhibit abrasives product. Having said, this is an exhibition that focuses in machinery and mature abrasives market means that the users would know who are the prominent abrasives suppliers in Thailand without the need for abrasives companies to participate in more exhibition.

    Abrasives market report

    A study from Transparency Market Research (TMR) titled, ‘Abrasives Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 – 2019’ provides a detailed analysis of the global abrasives market. According to the report, the market was valued in 2012 at US$35,203.6 million and will reach a value of US$51,389.7 million by 2019, while displaying a 5.5 percent CAGR during the forecast period of 2013-2019.


    The demand for abrasives globally in 2012 stood at 13,939.7 kilo tons. Natural and synthetic abrasives demand is increasing. The global abrasives market according to products is divided into bonded, coated, raw, steel, loose, and nonwoven abrasives. In 2012, the bonded abrasives segment contributed to the largest share of the market, followed by coated abrasives and loose abrasive grains.


    Growth Trends

    Bonded abrasives generated revenues of US$12,278.3 million in 2012. This segment is anticipated to reach a value of US$16,719.7 million in 2019 with a 4.5 percent CAGR during the forecast period. The raw superabrasives segment will be the fastest growing product segment in terms of revenue, and is expected to demonstrate a 7.7 percent  CAGR during 2013-2019. Furthermore, the loose abrasive grains segment will show record growth in the next few years due to the increasing demand for loose abrasive grains from manufacturers of abrasive products.


    Abrasive products find their use for various purposes such as machinery, transportation, electrical and electronic equipment, metal fabrication, and others (such as construction, medical devices, cleaning and maintenance, and power generation). In 2012, machinery segment led the abrasives market in terms of end-user and accounted for 23.8 percent of the global demand. This segment generated US$8,586.7 million revenue and is expected to reach a market value of US$12,418.5 million in 2019 with a 5.4 percent CAGR during the forecast period. Machinery segment was followed metal fabrication segment, which is another important end-user segment of the abrasives market. In addition, electrical and electronic equipment and transportation segments will demonstrate record fastest growth due to the ever-growing demand for automobiles and electrical and electronic appliances around the world. Other end-user segments such as medical devices, construction, power generation, cleaning and maintenance will also display a significant growth in the coming few years.


    The global market of abrasives is dominated by Asia Pacific, which contributed to 55.8 percent in 2012 in terms of global volumes consumed. Due to increasing demand from the automotive and electronic equipment industry, the region continues to dominate the market in terms of volume. Asia Pacific is followed by Europe with around 20 percent share in total consumption. The slump in the North American and European markets has contributed towards the growth of Asia Pacific’s abrasives market.


    The abrasives market shows attractive growth potential due to the increasing use of garnet for water jet cutting and abrasive blast cleaning. This superior processing method allows for highest purity garnet and highly accurate sizing of grains production. Garnet is employed as a blast cleaning abrasive across many industries to achieve superior quality of processing in terms of mineral purity.


    However, stringent government restrictions on the use of silica abrasives combined with volatile prices of raw materials, tend to suppress the growth of this market. Some of the top key players in the abrasives market include Robert Bosch GmbH, Saint Gobain SA, 3M, DuPont, Henkel AG & Co. KGaA, and Tyrolit Schleifmittelwerke Swarovski KG.

  • Article : Global Prospects for MDF and Particleboard
    Organisation : Abrasives World
    Date : 08/01/2015
    Author : Abrasives World

    Dear Readers,

    The MDF and Particle board industry have always been an important market segment for the coated abrasives producers. Abrasivesworld came across an article on the Global Prospects for MDF and Particleboard from Wood Based Panels International and felt that it will be of interest to our readers. Below please find article released on the 17th September 2014.




    MDF and particleboard producers in Europe and China will, over the next five years, benefit from a strong recovery in demand, driven by a US housing recovery. In this exclusive report, Bernie Neufeld of BIS Shrapnel highlights key findings in the company's recent global study.

    The recovery in US housing construction, an expanding global furniture industry, and strong growth in housing construction in rapidly-developing countries in Asia, South America, eastern Europe and Russia, will lead to strong growth in global production of MDF and particleboard by 2017, says the BIS Shrapnel report.

    However, the production of these two wood panel products will vary significantly by region over the next five years. The increase in production for both products could lead to a surplus of global stock and constrain price growth unless there is a significant increase in consumption in non-producing regions.

    The continent of Europe, which is still struggling to return to growth following the global financial and economic crisis, will be the main beneficiary of the expansion in particleboard production, with exports set to more than double during the five years to 2017 as production expands in Belarus, Bulgaria, Hungary, Latvia and Russia.

    Western Europe (excluding Russia and Turkey) remains the dominant particleboard producing region, accounting for 38.9% of the world's production in 2012, or 28.7 million m3. This will increase slightly by 2017.

    Europe, including Belarus, Bulgaria, Hungary and Latvia, will produce 34.8 million m3, accounting for 39.3% of global production. The 'greater European' region, including Russia and Turkey, is by far the largest producing region, with 53.4% of the world's production in 2012. This will rise to 53.9% by 2017.

    Net exports of particleboard from Europe (excluding Russia and Turkey) are projected to rise substantially over the forecast period, from 2.3 million m3 in 2012 to 5.6 million m3 in 2017.

    While Europe is also one of the larger MDF producing regions, there has been a shift in production from Europe and North America to Asia over the past decade.

    North Asia largest MDF producer By contrast, North Asia, which was not significantly affected by the global financial and economic crisis, has a voracious appetite for MDF and is likely to be the main beneficiary of the expansion in MDF production.

    The North Asia region will account for 54% of the world's MDF production by 2017, consolidating a decade-long shift away from the traditionally dominant producing regions of North America and Europe.

    China alone will account for 51% of all MDF production by 2017.

    In the early 1990s, the furniture industry in China was driven by domestic demand, in line with improved living standards. This resulted in the establishment of many new production facilities and the introduction of modern technology in these plants. As domestic demand increased, and China became a major exporter of furniture, the furniture manufacturing industry expanded exponentially.

    Many foreign firms shifted their operations to China to take advantage of low labour costs, export subsidies, and improving quality standards. These modern firms had a preference for using MDF for furniture manufacturing and this drove the expansion of MDF production in China.

    Over the forecast period, the focus of growth in China will shift from an export-led economy to one driven more by domestic demand. While this could place some constraints on the production of, and demand for, MDF in China, the shift away from North America and Europe to China, and other parts of Asia, as the dominant MDF producing regions will continue over the forecast period.

    North Asia was also the second largest particleboard producing region in 2012, with 19.9% of the production, or 14.6 million m3. The region's share of production is projected to decline to 17.8% by 2017, although production will actually increase to 15.8 million m3. Production in Japan and Korea is projected to remain flat and all the increase in production will be in China.

    Strong recovery for N America and others An increase in demand in the recovering building and furniture manufacturing sectors in North America will be a key driver for growth in the production of MDF and particleboard.

    However, due to the global financial crisis, the region will run into capacity constraints following the closure of mills over the past five years. The downturn in housing construction in the US reached the bottom of the cycle in 2009. Construction began to recover in 2010 and is well on the way to much stronger growth over the next five years.

    This recovery will drive economic growth, not only locally, but in many of its key trading partners around the world.

    It will also drive renewed demand for furniture and, ultimately, the demand for MDF and particleboard.

    Housing construction in other key regions, such as South America and Asia, will also drive global demand.

    Dear AbrasivesWorld reader, 


    In one the latest newsletter from Amacker+Schmid AG which was released in September '14, one of the topic shared was about their Tape Applicator. 

    Many of us knows that tape joint in coated abrasives belt application offers an alternate join type to the conventional overlap joint and this is normally applied as part of the skiving process operation or manually.

    However,  Amacker+Schmid is able to offer as a Stand-alone, continuously working tape applicator and with gluing and coating system. This is indeed impressive and worth  sharing in AbrasivesWorld.

    CHIS 2014 was held from the 18-20th Sept 2014 in Shanghai New International Expo Centre. The show has attracted 8 halls of exhibitors and despite rain, the show still draws good number of visitors.  

    As abrasives form an important core in the hardware and tooling industry, Abrasivesworld was delighted to meet many manufacturers (both coated and bonded abrasives) actively participating in this show. In addition, the show attracted raw material suppliers such as reinforce fibre glass for grinding discs, resins and minerals to abrasive equipment suppliers. Overseas exhibitors such as InterAbrasiv (Turkey) and Gruppo Itexa Srl were present as well.

    A quick count by Abrasivesworld estimated about 50 abrasives related companies taking part in this show – all mostly occupy Hall E1. Unlike previous shows where there were more bonded abrasives exhibitors, there is an even spread of bonded and coated Abrasives manufacturers this time.

    For coated abrasives, leading companies such as Hubei Yuli, JiangSu FengMang, Zibo Riken MT have participated in this show. For bonded abrasives, we have seen NingBo Dahua, Kaijie (ZhengZhou), Langfang J Long Hardware Abrasive too took part in the show.

    To inject more excitement, CHIS will move to the new National Exhibition and Convention Centre (NECC) located in HongQiao Shanghai) which will be held from 21st to 23rd Oct 2015. Judging from the newly designed exhibition and Convention halls which resemble a four leaf clover, we are sure that this lucky clover will bring the show success.

  • Article : Global Abrasives Market to Reach $40B in 2017
    Organisation : Abrasives World
    Date : 28/07/2014
    Author : Abrasives World

    Global demand for abrasives is forecast to expand nearly 6 percent annually through 2017 to just under $40 billion, according to market analyst Freedonia. Abrasives sales are expected to improve greatly in North America and Western Europe. The Africa/Mideast region, Central and South America, and Eastern Europe will perform much better through 2017 as well.

    In contrast, gains in the Asia/Pacific region are expected to decelerate modestly between 2012 and 2017, after more than a decade of rapid abrasives demand growth—but will still outperform all other regions during this time.

    In terms of products, paper and other coated abrasives are expected to see the fastest gains through 2017, followed by metallic products and superabrasives. Transportation equipment and fabricated metals will be the best performing end use markets during this period.

    China to lead demand

    About 55 percent of all additional abrasives demand generated between 2012 and 2017 will be attributable to China, Freedonia says. Abrasives sales in the country are projected to rise by 10 percent per year through 2017. As the Chinese abrasives market matures, however, growth is expected to decelerate noticeably from the breakneck pace of the last decade.

    Massive gains in manufacturing activity, rising living standards, and additional foreign investment will stimulate product demand in China. As the country’s durable goods industries become more sophisticated, the intensity of abrasives use—relative to GDP, manufacturing value added, and population size—will increase noticeably, Freedonia writes.

    Abrasives sales to rebound

    Following several years of losses during the recession-plagued 2007-2012 period, sales of abrasives in Western Europe are projected to expand nearly 2 percent per year between 2012 and 2017. As the region recovers from the financial crisis, production of durable goods is expected to rebound, generating additional demand for abrasives.

    North America will record considerably faster growth through 2017 than during the previous five-year period as well, for similar reasons. Sales of abrasives in the Africa/Mideast region, Central and South America, and Eastern Europe are expected to accelerate, as their durable goods sectors mature. More sophisticated industries generally require a greater level of abrasives. Additionally, demand for higher-end abrasives will increase, adding to market gains.

    Coated and metallic abrasives to gain ground

    The coated abrasives segment is projected to remain the leading product type through 2017, growing at an above-average pace. Healthy advances in manufacturing and construction activity, together with large consumer product demand gains, will stimulate paper and other coated abrasives consumption.

    Metallic abrasives, which are largely used in metalworking plants, foundries, and machine tool factories, are forecast to be the second fastest growing product through 2017 because these and similar industries will grow significantly.

    Finally, end users will require more advanced and specialized abrasives in the future, as their operations become more sophisticated. This trend will greatly boost global demand for superabrasives.

  • Article : 25 years on, many cannot live without the Internet
    Organisation : Abrasives World
    Date : 07/06/2014
    Author : Abrasives World

    The article continues to share statistical trend. Data from the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) - an agency of the United Nations - shows that in 2003, only 12.3 per cent of the world were using the Internet. It cited that access to cheaper computers is one reason for the rise in Internet adoption. Between 2003 and last year, computer science professor David Evans from the University of Virginia says, the cost of the computing power required to use the Internet fell by 100 times, making it more accessible. Fixed-broadband access has also become cheaper, dropping 82 per cent from 2008 to 2012, according to the ITU.

    China's online population overtook that of the United States in 2009 and the number of people online in India is expected to overtake those in the US in the next few quarters. At the end of last June, there were 591 million Internet users in China, while in the US, there were around 255 million users last year. Latest available numbers for India put the number of Internet users at 165 million in March last year.

    In China, the spread of the Internet has led to a dramatic increase in e-commerce. 

    According to the World Bank, Singapore has the highest Internet penetration rate in South-east Asia, at 74.2 per cent in 2012, a vast difference from a developing country like Cambodia at 4.9 per cent penetration. In the US, the figure was 81 per cent and people are increasingly dependent on the Internet.

    Indeed many people cannot imagine life without the Internet today. And in AbrasivesWorld, we believe this is the case too. Just see how an article from AbrasivesWorld will look at the convenience of your mobile phone below.

  • Article : Davide Maternini's abrasives testing machine that satisfy the loading standard test of EN 12413
    Organisation : Davide Maternini Spa
    Date : 17/05/2014
    Author : Luca Maternini

    Grinding and Cutting wheel testing machine to meet EN 12413 safety requirement

    The importance of product safety can never be more emphasized in the European market.

    It is precisely so that oSa (Organisation for Safety of Abrasives), started from 2000 with only 14 abrasives manufacturer members has continued to grow as industry, trade and users are increasing recognise the advantages of oSa labelled abrasives products.

    The oSa logo on the product signals that the manufacturer has done everything possible to produce tools which are as safe as possible. This reflects well in the manufacturers’ corporate social responsibility and gaining a foothold in the Europe market. For this reason, many manufacturers strive to have their product tested and certified.

    To qualify for oSa Logo, oSa’s members (bonded abrasives) must equip with test equipment that perform the following:

    1. Test equipment for burst and overspeed test
    2. Balance checking equipment
    3. Side load and impact test equipment for portable wheel type 27, 28, 29, 41 and 42

    As a leader in the R&D, fabrication and installation of abrasives producing equipment, Davide Maternini has a comprehensive series of testing machines that allow manufacturers to test their product to determine if it meet oSa’s requirement.

    This article elaborates Davide Maternini’s test phases for the side and impact test machine that are perform on both GRINDING WHEELS and CUTTING WHEELS, complying the safety standard of EN 12413. 

    1. IMPACT TEST with pendulum system
    2. SIDE LOAD TEST on 1 single point
    3. SIDE LOAD TEST on 3 points


    Description of the 3 tests

    Test 1

    IMPACT test with pendulum device

    Type of wheels



    ø from 150 to 400 mm


    Test phases are the following ones:

    1. The wheel is put into rotation at nominal working speed (80-100 m/s)
    2. Release of the impact mass
    3. Adjusting the pendulum angle of inclination it is possible to set variable energy of impact.
    4. the test is finished after about 30s from the impact
    5. the wheel must be dismounted to be analysed after the test


    Test 2

    SIDE LOAD test on single point

    Type of wheels



    ø from 115 to 400 mm.


    Test phases are the following ones:

    1. the wheel is put into rotation at nominal working speed (80-100 m/s)
    2. pressure roller moves on at fast speed and when close enough to the wheel lows down and starts to push the wheel at test speed
    3. the brushless motor allows to precisely measure stroke and hence wheel deformation
    4. Between brushless motor and roller it is inserted one precision load cell which has the task to measure the pressure given by the test roller on the wheel in rotation.
    5. when the test is finished, the rollers retracts back to parking position
    6. the wheel must then be dismounted to be analysed after the test
    7. The  result of the test can be verified through the test results table and the test results diagram, where 4 variables are plotted against test time: - current - rpm - test load - wheel deformation

    Consider that max. acceptable deformation of the wheel varies from 5mm up to approximately 35 mm, depending on wheels diameter.


    Test 3

    SIDE LOAD test on 3 points

    Type of wheels



    ø 300

    ø 350

    ø 400 mm.


    Test phases are the following ones:

    1. the wheel is put into rotation at nominal working speed (80-100 m/s)
    2. pressure roller moves on at fast speed and when close enough to the wheel lows down and starts to push the wheel at test speed
    3. the brushless motor allows to precisely measure stroke and hence wheel deformation
    4. Between brushless motor and roller it is inserted one precision load cell which has the task to measure the pressure given by the test roller on the wheel in rotation.
    5. when the test is finished, the rollers retracts back to parking position
    6. the wheel must then be dismounted to be analysed after the test
    7. The  result of the test can be verified through the test results table and the test results diagram, where 4 variables are plotted against test time: - current - rpm - test load - wheel deformation


    Consider that maximum acceptable deformation of the wheel varies from 5mm up to approximately 35 mm, depending on wheels diameter.

    “We believe in giving value to our customers and for this reason, we invested heavily in machinery that we can make-to-order to what our customer’s abrasives needs. By doing that, we shorten our delivery time and control the quality of our product better.” Said John Chia – Managing Director


    “As industry evolves, we too have to decide which would be the right market segment to stay focus. Our decision to focus in the board industry is the right one. In 2005, we have invested a modern and 

    more complex production line from Italy that allows us to join multiple joints. We made many research with many suppliers on the best material for segmented belts convertion. The technical capability and intensive research effort enables us to export overseas as there are less supplier that focus on this.” John added.   



    This year, Kitzutech plans to upgrade their machinery to increase both their production output and quality. It’s aim is to bring down it’s overall cost and passing on to their customers.

    —— 集团公司董事长黎珊玉接受通城电视台记者采访


      黎珊玉董事长说:玉立集团在这么一个山沟里为什么能做到全国第一,关键就是技术的不断创新。玉立集团有一句话叫做:突破求生存,创新求发展。玉立集团的技术发展,首先是培养核心技术人才。玉立集团的工程师都是草根,都是通城的小娃娃长大的。都是通过艰苦奋斗,自学成才,在本行业已经有了一定的位置。我们这几年获得国家专利17项、发明专利 32项,都是这些自己培养起来的小工程师研究出来的。第二就是装备,我们在装备提升上是舍得花钱的,比如十年前我们就筹资从意大利全线引进了一条砂带生产线,花去四千多万元,现在通过这么多年的消化吸收,我们自制的砂带生产线已经比国外的砂带生产线要好。

  • Article : About Davide Maternini
    Organisation : Abrasives World
    Date : 02/01/2012
    Author : Abrasives World

    First Private Limited Company Registered in Italy



    Establised since 1947, following the end of World War II, Davide Maternini founded the Davide Maternini in Malnate Italy.

    Initially, the company started as a small engineering operation and enjoyed modest growth - thanks to the reconstruction of local industry recovering from the effects of war. In the mid fifties, an abrasives manufacturer in the area commissioned the Davide Maternini Company to design and construct a hydraulic press to manufacture grinding wheels. This provided the company with a unique entry in to the world of resinoid and vitrified abrasives.

    By the late1960’s, the company was totally dedicated to the design and manufacture of unique equipment for the production of grinding wheels.

    It is testament to the quality of the engineering that most of the Davide Maternini’s machines are still working somewhere throughout the world. The company sales have continued to increase year by year, securing a larger and larger share of the world market at the expense of their competitors. This has been achieved by producing machines of superior quality, state-of-the-art technology and the continual introduction of new and innovative concepts.

    Today and living up to its name of supremacy and continuous innovation spirit, Davide Maternini is probably the only company that specializes in both bonded and coated abrasives equipment from design, engineering, to fabrication and commissioning of its complete turnkey equipment and production facility – a truly one stop solution provider.

    With its new and dedicated Asia entity based in Singapore and soon in China, Davide Maternini aims to bring itself closer to the end users whom are the producers of abrasives tools.
