Saint-Gobain Abrasives has launched 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 the company says greatly improves grain retention in the wheel, which 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. Saint-Gobain Abrasives says these wheels reduce cycle times by up to 50 percent, improve stock removal by over 30 percent and increase wheel life from 30-100 percent versus standard products currently on the market.

 

Norton Century45 centerless grinding wheels also 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. To put this reduction in context, many commercially-available foam ear plugs offer Noise Reduction Ratings in the range of 25 to 28dB.
