Saint-Gobain Abrasives introduced Norton QUANTUM™ X creepfeed wheels, which feature three proprietary technologies to create the “ultimate” wheel for free-cutting. The leading Norton technologies that comprise QUANTUM X include a patented pore-induced construction, Norton Quantum ceramic abrasive and the strongest patented bond from Norton. The QUANTUM X wheels are ideal for a variety of applications ranging from low to medium and high-force on heat-sensitive, hard-to-grind Inconel, titanium and aerospace alloys. These new creepfeed wheels excel on large areas of contact applications.
