Saint-Gobain Abrasives’ Norton Winter V-Prime grinding wheels are designed to provide excellent edge stability and long life when gashing and clearance-grinding round tools. A more stable grinding process offers greater efficiency and better part quality with less subsurface damage. An innovative V-Prime resin bond combines exceptional wear resistance with the dressing ability of a standard resin bond, the company says.
According to the company, these grinding wheels significantly increase productivity and reduce cycle times due to requiring lower grinding forces and permitting higher feed rates. User-friendly offline dressing optimizes grinding wheel preparation, saving time and cost.
V-Prime is well suited for all applications where grinding tool edge stability is vital. The wheels maintain consistent geometry for long periods of time, minimizing the need for correction and increasing output and part quality. For even more efficient operations, the wheels can be easily implemented without any machine or process adjustments, the company says.
Norton Winter V-Prime grinding wheels are available in a range of common shapes and sizes for resin bonds, and in grits such as 240, 320 and 400. The wheels can be customized for specific customer requirements.
