Norton Introduces New Centerless Grinding Wheel

Saint-Gobain Abrasives has added a new line of centerless grinding wheels to its bonded abrasives portfolio.

The newly developed Norton Century45 centerless bond platform features an exclusive chemistry that improves grain retention in the wheel. Better grain retention means wheels are constructed with more porosity for a given hardness. This translates into wheels having a hard grade with the performance of a softer grade, providing a range of benefits.

Norton Century45 wheels are available with ceramic, aluminum oxide, silicon carbide grain and abrasive blends to maximize user grinding safety and efficiency. These wheels reduce cycle times by up to 50%, improve stock removal by over 30% and increase wheel life from 30%-100% versus standard products currently on the market.

Norton Century45 centerless grinding wheels can decrease grinding noise levels by as much as 23.2dB, even when grinding hard-to-grind alloys such as Inconel 718, thus increasing operator safety.
