Benelux Hondekop – Visomax helps with historic train restoration
The Dutch foundation “Stichting Hondekop” has a mission. A historic train is to be restored and finally brought back from the siding after a long period of disuse. We are talking about the “Benelux Hondekop”. It owes this name to the front of the railcar, which resembles a dog’s head. Since the late 1950s, twelve examples of the train have been in service on the route between Amsterdam and Brussels. Thirty years later, eleven of them were scrapped. Thus, the twelfth has long been the last of its kind.
In 2015, the Stichting Hondekop fulfilled a dream by acquiring the train from the Belgian railroads and a short time later shipped the unique specimen from Leuven (Belgium) to Roosendaal (Netherlands). Currently, some dedicated volunteers are busy restoring the Hondekop and can rely on our support. Our Dutch partner Techvice is providing the Visomax sandinators, HP-Sanding Discs and vacuum cleaners with dust protection class M, which will ensure in the old workshop in Roosendaal that the Benelux Hondekop can soon be back on the rails.

Surface finish 4.0
Complex production planning, high volumes and low batch sizes – automotive manufacturers and suppliers are under pressure. A new two-stage polishing process enables grinding removal and high-gloss polishing in one robotic cell. This improves the finish and saves production space.

Rolls-Royce also purchases in Waldbüttelbrunn
If the patient has holes, the dentist drills, grinds or polishes them. The more hidden the caries is, the more complicated the procedure becomes. A car paint can also have more or less visible damage – a scratch, a so-called orange peel or the smallest dust inclusions.
If such an offender spreads between base coat and clear coat, the company Visomax Coating from Waldbüttelbrunn comes into play. With their products, the painted bodies are treated in a similar way to teeth – apart from drilling. “In principle, almost everything at Visomax revolves around sanding and polishing painted high-gloss surfaces,” says Markus Schick, one of the four shareholders of Visomax… read more
