Depressed Center Grinding Wheels

Saint-Gobain Abrasives will showcase Norton QUANTUM3 (NQ3) along with other new products at FABTECH 2016, Booth N-4104.

"NQ3 features a proprietary grain along with a tougher bond system containing a unique combination of fillers and bonding agents that allow for much better mix quality in manufacturing," said a company spokesperson. "NQ3 provides substantially faster grinding for more metal removal and longer wheel life with less operator fatigue to significantly increase grinding output. Test results conducted with NQ3 and competitive wheels revealed that NQ3 removed almost twice the amount of carbon steel at five minute intervals."

Norton Quantum3 wheels are constructed using a precisely engineered iron, sulfur and chlorine-free resin technology to provide a uniform abrasive distribution throughout the wheel. This bond was designed for retaining the grains long enough during and after grain fractures, enabling enhanced cut rates and wheel life.

"Norton Quantum3 grain tends to be more rounded than precision-shaped ceramic grain," said Debbie Gaspich, Norton Abrasives Director of Product Management, North America. "This allows a more robust, sharper cutting action with less vibration for much easier operator control. These wheels do not grab or dig when used in any direction. They simply glide through the workpiece while removing metal. This also means the free cutting control can boost the amperage on its own without additional pressure needed on the tool. Norton Quantum3 grinding wheels are made in the USA."

The new Quantum3 wheels are offered in 12 Type 27 all-purpose grinding application SKUs, one Type 28 all-purpose and two Type 27 SKUs for foundry applications. Sizes range from 4" x 1/4" x 3/8" to 9" x 1/4" to 7/8".
