Saint-Gobain Abrasives’ latest generation of medium diameter cut-off wheels

Saint-Gobain Abrasives has introduced the latest generation of medium diameter cut-off wheels for foundry environments, under the Norton brand. Developed with the new Foundry X bond technology, the cut-off wheels are engineered to increase cut rate and wheel life in all foundry cut-off applications.

The new range is available in standard Norton (good tier) and Norton Norzon (better tier). Foundry X bond technology offers three major features and benefits compared to existing Norton bonds.

Angled wheels

First, improved thermal stability ensures increased resistance to heat and thermal degradation allowing longer tool life and reduced cost per cut for the end-user.

Second, higher mechanical strength ensures high performance in even the most demanding cutting conditions.

Finally, Foundry X technology is compatible with an extensive range of abrasive blends, providing flexibility and guaranteed performance on a wide range of materials.
Improved cut-rate, shorter cycle time and longer tool life are key factors to lowering overall process cost for cutting applications in the foundry market.

Flat wheels

According to Saint-Gobain the cut-off wheels last longer, cut faster, reduce cycle time, reducing the cost per part produced, they are versatile and their efficiency cuts a wide range of material types, including cast iron, alloyed and stainless steels.
