Saint-Gobain Abrasives introduces CarbonForce, a new lightweight line of vitrified cBN wheels for OD grinding.

Norton Saint-Gobain Abrasives introduces CarbonForce, a new lightweight line of vitrified cBN wheels for OD grinding. According to the company, CarbonForce wheels are 75 percent lighter than heavier steel-hubbed wheels and provide the safety and benefits of a precision super-abrasive wheel.

With their lightweight carbon fiber core, CarbonForce wheels are said to eliminate the need for a crane because they meet most safe lifting weight limits. The wheels have been qualified to run at MOS of 31,496 fpm (160 m/s) for wheels with an OD less than 7.9” (200 mm).

The wheels feature thermally stable, lighter weight core with vibration dampening technologies and a vitrified cBN bond system. Operators can mount four CarbonForce wheels as opposed to one steel rim wheel onto a four-phase cam shaft for simultaneous grinding of all four lobes in one operation. All wheels are also equipped with a steel bushing to ensure long life of the wheel bore.

Norton CarbonForce wheels are made-to-order with a maximum diameter of 1,000 mm and a maximum width of 650 mm.
