Grinding, Cut-Off, Blending and Finishing Solutions

Saint-Gobain Abrasives will feature how to "Work Smart with Norton" by exhibiting a range of abrasives designed to optimize the user experience. Norton abrasives highlighted at FABTECH will include the latest in grinding, cut-off, blending and finishing solutions to address today's challenging application requirements. The company also has ways to increase user productivity by automating grinding processes. Norton established the new Abrasive Process Solutions (APS) Program to help customers determine the optimal grinding or finishing solution for the application at hand, ranging from simple to complex, off-hand or automated, and for metal fabrication, production grinding and virtually any abrasives operation.

Abrasives highlighted at Norton's FABTECH booth will include:

  • New Norton Vortex Rapid Prep Non-Woven Flap Discs designed to last longer and produce increased cutting rates and smear-free finishes. Norton patented Vortex agglomerated aluminum oxide grain technology enables the cutting power of a coarser grit while producing a finer finish in one abrasives disc solution.
  • New Norton Vortex Rapid Blend Coarse Grit Wheels and Discs offer a finishing process solution that reduces and blends welds in a single operation, providing a 30% to 50% improvement in productivity while leaving smear-free finishes, the company reported.
  • Norton QUANTUM3 (NQ3) Line of Grinding and Cutting Wheels cut fast and sharp, achieving increased metal removal in less time, with less operator fatigue. The wheels feature a proprietary grain along with a tougher bond system containing a unique combination of fillers and bonding agents.
  • Norton BlazeX F980 Fiber Discs have premium ceramic alumina micro-fracturing grain and proprietary COOL FRICTION technology, resulting in more parts per disc. BlazeX offers higher material removal rates in a wide range of grinding processes in stainless steel and harder-to-grind materials.
  • New "Norton for Aluminum" Thin Wheels for the right angle cutting and grinding of aluminum and other nonferrous soft metals. High quality, extra-friable and self-sharpening aluminum oxide grain and specialized bond technology provide enhanced cutting and grinding performance.
