Norton's Winter Vitron7 Wheels Optimized for Camshaft, Crankshaft Grinding
Saint-Gobain Abrasives offers Norton Winter Vitron7 cubic boron nitride (CBN) grinding wheels, which feature a high-precision vitrified bond.
Saint-Gobain Abrasives offers Norton Winter Vitron7 cubic boron nitride (CBN) grinding wheels, which feature a high-precision vitrified bond designed for the high-performance external grinding of camshafts and crankshafts as well as internal grinding applications in the automotive and bearing industries. The CBN grain particles are uniformly dispersed throughout the bond matrix for higher grinding efficiency, reduced cycle times, extended wheel life and more finished parts between dress cycles, the company says. Vitron7 wheels also grind cooler thanks to a lower specific grinding energy (SGE) minimizing residual stress and reducing surface roughness degradation.
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.
The double-disc grinding process is consolidating its position in automotive applications but is moving into other industries. Double-disc grinders are now easier to operate, and they have added capabilities for control flexibility, precision process control, faster changeovers, and grinding of nontraditional materials.
Understanding grinding wheel fundamentals will help you find the right wheel for the job.
