New Vortex Technology BCG Centerless Wheels from Norton Abrasives Provides 45% or More Wheel Life by Dramatically Reducing Wheel Dressing

Vortex technology produces an extremely permeable centerless grinding wheel with an improved porous structure and superior abrasive grain spacing by combining a new engineered abrasive grain and an innovative manufacturing process.

Optimizing the abrasive and porosity distribution is critical for improving material removal and wheel wear in precision centerless grinding. The Vortex technology results in great metal removal rates, reduced cycle times, longer wheel life, improved part quality and the coolest grinding wheel for heat-sensitive applications.

The new Norton BCG Vortex technology wheels have been proven to reduce cycle time while producing two to three times the number of pieces ground per wheel on highly grindable, medium-high resistance-to-wear materials such as soft and hardened 52100 steel, 1000 series carbon steels and 4000 series alloy steels. These materials are typically used for roller bearings and thru-feed centerless grinding of materials.

Norton BCG centerless wheels with Vortex technology are also more versatile. One wheel grade is able to produce the finish and performance of two or more conventional centerless wheels. Plus, the patented Vortex technology does not require the use of artificial pore inducers (chemicals) unlike other porous vitrified wheel technologies. Manufacturers who choose Vortex technology can avoid use of artificial pore inducers and help preserve the environment.

Norton Vortex technology BCG centerless wheels are available in 80 and 100 grit in standard sizes up to 10 inches thick in one piece and up to 20 inches thick in sets. Norton Abrasives can also provide rubber feed wheels and diamond dressing tools for centerless grinding applications.
