Saint-Gobain Abrasives Offering New Line of Norton Carbide Burrs
Saint-Gobain Abrasives has introduced a new line of Norton Carbide Burrs designed for surface removal on demanding production runs with less changeovers. The hardness of a tungsten-carbide substrate, stronger tooth formulation due to a decreased tooth wedge angle and numerous cutting edges, all provide the new Norton Double-Cut Carbide Burrs with a significantly extended life and better stock removal performance.
“Our Double-Cut Carbide Burrs can be used longer with fewer changeovers on challenging production applications as to compared to other double-cut burrs,” said Patrick Carroll, Norton | Saint-Gobain Abrasives senior product manager. “Operators will achieve high stock removal and smaller, granular chip-break on hard-to-grind work pieces.”
The Norton Double-Cut Carbide Burrs are ideal for efficiently removing surface stock and weld splatter, deburring and chamfering applications, along with medium to light cleaning. Specially designed tool geometries are ideally suited to meet the growing demands of stainless steel, steel, cast steel and composite applications. The new burrs perform well at higher temperatures and can be used longer than high-speed steel tools.
These burrs can be used on handheld tools such as the new Norton Pneumatic Die Grinder or on automated CNC machines. A kit is also available, including the five most popular burr types for smaller job requirements.
