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.
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.
Abrasives App for Grinding Calculations
The Norton Grinding App from Norton Abrasives is designed to simplify the process of calculating requirements for grinding applications.
Diamond and CBN Wheels Provide High-Performance Round-Tool Flute Grinding
Norton Paradigm diamond and CBN wheels from Saint-Gobain Abrasives are designed for high-performance grinding of carbide and round-tool fluting on high speed steel to decrease cycle times and cost per part.
Metal Fabricating Abrasives Products Feature Zirconia Alumina Grain
Norton Abrasives (of Saint-Gobain Abrasives) is upgrading its “Better” tier of metal fabricating abrasives products for portable grinding applications.
Grinding App Has Handy Calculators

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.
Grinding’s Role In A Thermal Spray Shop
Cylindrical grinding is the final step in bringing worn components back to size after applying a build-up coat of molten metal.
Getting The Most From Creep-Feed Grinding
No other process can do what creep-feed grinding can do. Recent tests show even more can be gained by optimizing every element of a creep-feed system.
Grinding Wheel Safety: Respect The Maximum Speed
One potential source of serious injury in grinding comes from an oversight that is easy to make: operating the wheel in an over-speed condition.
Choosing The Right Grinding Wheel
Understanding grinding wheel fundamentals will help you find the right wheel for the job.
'Map' Abrasive Performance
Often application of an abrasive formulation can be a "shot-in-the-dark" as to how well it will actually perform in the cut. Of course, the grinding process is complicated by many variables, each of which can impact application success. This article looks at a predictive method of analysis of abrasive performance that will help eliminate the abrasive as a variable in the grinding equation.
New Hand Grinder Disc Lets You See The Grind
One of the most popular tools in any metalworking shop is the right-angle hand grinder. Its versatility covers the gamut from blending weld beads to mold and die repair.
Demystify The Grinding Process
Understanding the cause-and-effect relationships within the grinding process helps make grinding more controllable and more predictable.
