I.D. Grinding Wheels Offer High Efficiency in Precision Applications

Saint-Gobain Abrasives has introduced Norton IDeal-Prime Internal Diameter Grinding Wheels for precision applications. The wheels feature a new Norton Quantum Prime nano-crystalline ceramic grain embedded in an optimized matrix of Norton Vitrium3 bond.

"The combination of the micro-fracture properties of the new ceramic grain from Saint-Gobain Abrasives and the retention capability of the bond helps ensure long wheel life, excellent grinding efficiency and consistent part quality with superior finish that results in cost savings of 30% and more," said a company spokesperson.

The self-sharpening grain technology increases the material removal rate (MRR) and decreases the need for dressing. "Even with increased MRR, the innovative grain technology in Norton IDeal-Prime Wheels offers increased sharpness and cutting efficiency that reduces spindle power requirements, minimizing mechanical stress and improving part geometry," said the spokesperson.

For long wheel life, the grain micro-structure enables cooler cuts and maintains more stable wheel profiles and shapes. Part surface finish is improved and consistent due to the Norton Vitrium3 bond technology in Norton IDeal-Prime Wheels.

Norton IDeal-Prime Internal Diameter Grinding Wheels are suited for a range of applications including bearing, automotive, general engineering and gear. The wheels are available in grits ranging from 46 to 150, in grades from G to Q and in structures from 6 to 10.
