SAINT-GOBAIN ABRASIVES has introduced Norton Winter Vitron7™ carbon-boron nitride (cBN) grinding wheels featuring a high-precision, vitrified bond specifically designed for the high-performance external grinding of cam and crankshafts and internal grinding applications in automotive and bearing industries.
“Our Vitron7 wheels provide an ideal solution for the increasing demands of grinding in these applications where high surface quality, reduced cycle times and manufacturing costs are critical,” stated Bill Lane, senior product manager.
The Norton Winter Vitron7 wheels incorporate premium cBN-grain particles uniformly dispersed throughout the bond matrix for maximum grinding efficiency. As a result, manufacturers can achieve substantial increases in the number of finished parts between dress cycles, significantly reducing cycle times, and extending wheel life up to 40% over comparable grinding products.
Vitron7 wheels also grind cooler due to a lower specific grinding energy (SGE) that ensures minimal residual stress, for superior part quality with surface roughness degradation reductions of up to 30%.
When ID grinding, lower power results in less defection and minimizes taper while maximizing part straightness.
