Norton Foundry X - Press Release

The latest generation of medium diameter cut-off wheels for foundry environments


Norton offers a range of cut-off wheels for use in Foundry environments.
This latest generation of cut-off products has been developed with the Foundry X bond technology, engineered to increase cut rate and wheel life in all foundry cut-off applications.
The range is available in standard Norton (good tier) and Norton Norzon (better tier).
Foundry X bond technology offers three major features and benefits compared to existing Norton bonds. First, improved thermal stability ensures increased resistance to heat and thermal degradation allowing longer tool life and reduced cost per cut for the end-user. Second, higher mechanical strength ensures high performance in even the most demanding cutting conditions.
Finally, Foundry X technology is compatible with an extensive range of abrasive blends, providing flexibility and guaranteed performance on a wide range of materials.
Improved cut-rate, shorter cycle time and longer tool life are key factors to lowering overall process cost for cutting applications in the foundry market.
