Flap Wheels Offer Maximum Grinding Productivity



"Saint-Gobain Abrasives, a manufacturer and supplier of performance-engineered abrasives, has introduced Norton Blaze R920 Ceramic Alumina Flap Wheels which are designed to deliver a smooth, consistent finish with a fast, cool uniform rate of cut under the toughest production applications," said a company spokesperson. The wheels are suited for aggressive grinding and precision finishing, blending, deburring, cleaning and producing uniform finishes on tough parts that are manufactured in hard-to-grind materials including super alloys, stainless steel and cobalt.

"The Norton next generation of sharp, ceramic abrasive grains and advanced grinding aid lubricant provide faster, cooler burn-free grinding," said the spokesperson. A flexible but strong, heavy cotton backing wears evenly which is designed to deliver chatter-free cutting action, longer-life for less changeovers and to help ensure flexibility for the application while eliminating aggressive sanding action. An advanced full resin bond system promotes exceptional grain retention that increases product life.

Norton Blaze R920 flap wheels are able to achieve close tolerances when finishing curved, contoured and hard-to-reach areas and are available in both spindle-mount and arbor hole designs. Norton spindle-mounted flap wheels give a controlled rate of wear, exposing new grains, making them ideal for uneven surfaces and a cost-effective replacement for brushes, rubber points and felt bobs. With shanks that run through the center of the wheel, spindle-mounted flap wheels create better balance, and reduce chatter and operator fatigue. Norton arbor hole flap wheels are used on bench-top and fixed-based pedestal tools. "The wheels are more forgiving than other abrasive products, which reduces the possibility of flattening, gouging and surface deformation for fewer rejected parts," said the spokesperson.

Norton Blaze R920 flap wheels are available in 1", 2", 3", with 1/4" steel shank sizes and 6" x 1" x 1" arbor hole. Additional sizes and grits are available custom-made to exact requirements.
