Enhanced Norton Gemini Wheels offer best class performance

March 16, 2022 - Saint-Gobain Abrasives, Worcester, Massachusetts, has introduced newly upgraded Norton Gemini Grinding and Combination/Pipeline Wheels which offer the best performance in the aluminum oxide wheel market today. Enhanced Norton Gemini wheels feature a new premium alumina grain for a 15 percent faster cut rate. Advanced bond technology and wheel hardness are designed for making fast cuts and provide up to 60 percent longer life and metal removal per wheel compared to previous generation products.

“Our Gemini cutting wheels have been the market leader in their class for years, offering premium performance at an economic price point,” said Bradley Povelaites, manager, product and commercial management, Norton | Saint-Gobain Abrasives. “We are very pleased to offer our customers even higher productivity as the new wheels cut faster and last longer, requiring fewer wheel changes.”

The upgraded wheels are designed with ergonomics in mind, offering a controlled yet aggressive feel without causing the fatigue of other competitive high-performance wheels. Also, the new Gemini wheels have been updated with large, industry standard icons that cross language barriers, and are an on-the-wheel reminder of proper machine selection, safe usage and required personal protective equipment.

Norton Gemini Wheels are a good choice for grinding 400 series stainless, and hard-grade carbon steel applications including weld repairs, flashing, multi-pass welding for pipefitting, and notching. Key market segments are metal fabrication and welding, as well as oil and gas/ pipeline. Offhand stock removal, smoothing welds, beveling and notching are all ideal applications.

Enhanced for pipeline applications, the Gemini Combination Wheels feature a bond that has been optimized for 30° angle grinding and 90° angle notching. The wheel construction is more dense and thinner, making it an exceptional choice for multi-pass welding with tight clearances.
