Norton Abrasives to Exhibit Vitrified Grinding Wheels at IMTS
July 29, 2002
Norton Abrasives will exhibit its BRGi vitrified grinding wheels with XG low-pressure abrasive grain at the IMTS show in September. These precision wheels are designed for internal diameter and bore grinding. The new XG micro fracturing abrasive grain in Norton BRGi wheels stays sharp longer, grinds with less power draw, generates less heat and reduces overall wheel wear. In tests run in bearing manufacturing plants, these wheels produced over two times more parts per wheel with tighter tolerances and greater overall integrity, with less down time for wheel truing and dressing. Norton BRGi wheels are available in diameters of .204-4.500 in., thicknesses of .063-4.000 in. and grit sizes of 46-150 (46 grit only available over .312 diameters).
