Vortex technology optimizes the abrasive distribution, and the wheel’s porosity distribution which allows for significantly improved material removal rates and longer wheel life. The advanced formula Vortex technology was developed by Saint-Gobain Abrasive R&D. Vortex technology combines a new abrasive grain and an innovative manufacturing process that allows the manufacturing of soft but strong permeable grinding wheels.
Grinding Wheels Increase Metal Removal Rates
Norton Abrasives offers its Gemini XXL aluminum oxide depressed-center grinding wheels for improved performance and increased metal removal rates on hard-grade carbon steel applications, weld repairs, flashing and jobs requiring a quick turnaround.
Bond. Vitrified Bond.
New vitrified bond technology features proprietary chemistry to achieve higher performance as well as extended wheel life for today’s advanced grinding machines.
Anatomy of a New Bond Technology
A new vitrified bond technology features proprietary chemistry to achieve higher performance as well as extended wheel life for today’s advanced grinding machines.
Big Machining for Big Machinery
A significant investment in machining equipment, including an advanced five-axis, 6-meter profile grinding machine, is enabling this Southwestern shop to be more competitive at producing large-scale gears, shafts and other mining components.
Grinding App Has Handy Calculators
Saint-Gobain Abrasives, one of the world’s largest abrasives manufacturer, has introduced a Norton Abrasives Grinding App, available for IOS and Android operating systems on mobile devices.
Improved Depressed Center Wheels
Norton has expanded its line of depressed center wheels for right-angle grinding to include a large selection of sizes, thicknesses, performance levels and specialty products. The Charger Plus and Gemini lines include INOX contaminant-free wheels, which contain less than 0.01-percent iron, sulfur and chlorine for rust- and corrosion-free results that prevent stainless steel contamination.
Grinding Turbine Rotors Has Advantages
For many aerospace components, grinding systems achieve greater productivity than milling and broaching on today’s lighter, tougher, harder materials. Tests performed at Saint-Gobain Abrasives’ Higgins Grinding Technology Center in Worcester, Massachusetts, showed that along with the latest abrasive and bonding technologies, the systems approach produced remarkable results when applied to grinding turbine rotor root-form slots.
