Increasingly stringent industry requirements for gears are resulting in greater demand for profile accuracy and improved surface finishes. Norton Xtrimium addresses these increasingly exacting demands.
The choice of abrasive is key in the production of high quality gears and Norton offers high performance grinding wheels that are engineered to deliver a complete technical solution for worm and dual worm grinding, profile grinding and bevel grinding.
Norton Xtrimium Applications
An engineered micro-structured ceramic grain provides excellent free cutting action and durability to maximize performance and quality.
• Perfect homogeneity throughout wheel thickness
• Increased form holding
• Friction free
DUAL WORM GRINDING
The dual wheel combines a vitrified section to grind, and a fine grit section to polish the gear teeth.
• High surface quality providing Rz=1,0µm Rpk=0,05µm
• Wheels can be adapted to existing machines
High porosity and permeability in this ceramic based wheel offering the fastest metal removal rate on the market.
• Unrivalled DIN quality
• Fast material removal
Our highly porous Xtrimium bevel formulation is the ‘must have’ wheel, no other wheel for bevel grinding compares.
• Burn free cutting
• Extremely fast grinding
• Reduces part rejection, overall lowering the cost per unit
