Abrasive Test Centre

You are invited to visit our Abrasive Test Centre, by far the largest in the UK and as far as we know the largest in Europe.

Here you will find the very latest grinding, deburring and polishing equipment and materials. More than 25 portable abrasive power tools, over 50 manual abrasive belt grinding machines, tube notchers, tri-planetary machines for polishing bent tube, abrasive belt centreless machines, abrasive belt flatbed throughfeed machines, a wide belt deburring and finishing machine, tool post grinders and many dedicated machines.

To make the machines perform efficiently and economically we stock every conceivable abrasive grinding, deburring and polishing tool including little known specialities, but all designed to solve problems.

We can offer you more solutions in one place than you could find travelling the country and because we are an independent Company we will recommend what is best for you and not just what is in our manufacturing programme. Bring your own parts and discuss your requirements with our skilled and experienced engineers who will also set up practical demonstrations.See for yourself how our machines can be used to solve problems or to improve efficiency. Alternatively send us parts and we will finish them in accordance with your instructions and tell you how we did it.

Surtech''s 15 000 sq ft factory. 10 minutes from Junction 6 of the M6 (Spaghetti Junction). 20 minutes from Birmingham airport. 10 minutes from Birmingham New Street station.


Please ring our sales office on 0121 359 4322 and tell us when you want to visit. We can fit you in most days because we can look after more than one visitor at a time. Please give us a brief outline of what you want to see so that we can arrange to have the most suitable machines and materials available.
