After-Sales Support

Steel abrasive is not a commodity. It is an essential component in a process that can be very costly if not maintained and supported on a regular basis.

Our trained technical support personnel are therefore at your disposal, at no additional cost. We can arrange to visit relevant plants as required on a regular basis to provide:

Advice on abrasive selection

A review of machine settings to ensure reduced wear and optimum abrasive consumption

Assessment of abrasive performance and work-mix configuration

Assessment of cleanliness and, if required, surface roughness on work-pieces

Advice on potential cost savings and productivity increases
