Saint-Gobain Abrasives will showcase the entire Norton Quantum3 (NQ3) grinding wheel portfolio at FABTECH 2018, including new RightCut Wheels, which add cut-off capability to the line that also includes depressed-center grinding wheels and combination wheels.

NQ3 RightCut Wheels boast a more rounded grain than the typical precision-shaped ceramic grains, the company says, which allows for faster cutting action and less vibration, also helping to reduce operator fatigue. The 0.045" wheel is well-suited for working on thinner materials or when the job must be done quickly, while the 1/16" wheel is better suited for cutting thicker materials.

The wheels are offered in four Type 01/41 and three Type 27/42 models and in 4-1/2", 5" and 6" variations.
