Quantum X Combined Technology

Quantum X – The Next Generation Innovation for Performance Grinding

Quantum X provides maximum performance, raised productivity and reduced process costs. It is a highly porous wheel with higher material removal, exceptional cool grinding and reduced cycle times in heat and stress sensitive processes.

 It combines three of the very best Norton technologies to bring you unrivalled value and performance, creating the ultimate grinding experience. 

 

QUANTUM X COMBINED TECHNOLOGY

VORTEX2 VITRIUM3 QUANTUM

The Vortex2 provides a cool and low stress cut. It has a highly porous and permeable structure that maximises coolant access to the grinding zone. It also consists of a 3D engineered grain spacing.

Vitrium3 can be used across many applications in high precision grinding. It features exclusive Norton chemistry that delivers an entirely new grain adhesion science

Quantum provides a perfect blend of sharpness and toughness due to its ceramic grain. The revolutionary ceramic grain multiplies the cutting efficiency by controlling the grain breakdown at micrometric level.

 

GROUND BREAKING BENEFITS

FAST OPERATIONS
Cycle time reduction and an improved cutting efficiency due to the highly permeable ceramic spacing.

 

LOW FORCE CUTTING
Low threshold power of Quantum in a homogeneous Vortex structure reduces the cutting forces – resulting in lower stress and friction for better part quality, consistent cut and less dresser wear.

 

COMPETITIVE PRICE
Quantum X is positioned at a competitive price compared to other products in the market, providing valuable cost savings.

 

It can be used in multiple industries:

 

Specialised applications include:

  • Heat sensitive and difficult to grind alloys
  • Areas of high material removal
  • Thin wall parts sensitive to deformation
