NORTON | SAINT-GOBAIN introduced an upgrade to its Norton Gemini RightCut Wheels, providing the best aluminum oxide (A/O) option for cutting steel and ferrous metals.
The latest generation Norton Gemini RightCut wheels are 100% A/O abrasive, infused with a new bond technology and process, for a thinner wheel design and low kerf loss. Strong, extra-thin 0.045-in. wheels result in less material waste and quick cutting action. Providing a clean, precise, straight, burr-free quality cut, RightCut wheels offer up to 20% faster cutting than a standard wheel. The wheels are longer lasting, extending wheel usage up to 70% more than conventional wheels.
Also, the new Norton Gemini RightCut wheels require less pressure while cutting, giving operators a more comfortable, easier-to-use cut-off method.
"Our exclusive new design on the Gemini RightCut wheels will outlast and out-cut competitive A/O blades," according to Debbie Gaspich, director of Product Management, North America. "Operators will also appreciate a comfortable cut, as the wheels quickly and easily slice through a variety of steels."
Norton Gemini RightCut wheels are a cost-effective cut-off solution for portable, guarded right angle grinders and are ideal for numerous metal slotting and cut-off applications including on bolts and studs, angle iron, tubing and sheet metal in a variety of materials ranging from carbon to stainless steel. Type 01 (4-7 in.) and Type 27 (4-9 in.) wheels are available.
