Established to help you determine the optimal grinding or finishing solutions for your applications, the Norton Abrasive Process Solutions (APS) Program provides abrasive process development, optimization, automation, and in-house testing.
Instead of reassigning in-house resources and pausing your own production to conduct tests, you can rely on the knowledge and resources of the Norton team. Located at the Higgins Grinding Technology Center in Northborough, Massachusetts, the APS program has access to 30 different machines and a new state-of-the-art APS Robotic Automation Cell, which is at the core of the program.
The APS Automation Cell is capable of delivering abrasive-to-part and part-to-abrasive applications, wet/dry processing, and uses a full range of abrasives. Equipped with a verified turnkey solution, manufacturers can then contact an automation system integrator to implement the solution, avoiding costly trial and error at the integrator level.
