Saint-Gobain Abrasives’ Norton Quantum3 (NQ3) line of depressed-center grinding wheels includes combination wheels designed for more efficient and faster cutting and grinding, resulting in increased productivity and longer wheel life.

According to the company, the wheels enable users to finish more pieces in less time, and the need for wheel changes is reduced, resulting in decreased downtime. They also are said to be easier to use. The wheels feature a proprietary grain along with a tougher bond system containing a unique combination of fillers and bonding agents, the company says. The grain tends to be more rounded than precision-shaped ceramic grain, allowing a more robust cutting action with less vibration for easier operator control. Sizes include 4 1/2", 5", 6", 7" and 9" for hubbed and non-hubbed wheels.
