Norton’s new Quantum3 lightweight grinding wheels hit the mark for speed, accuracy and comfort
Norton has expanded its Quantum3 offering with the addition of a range of light comfort grinding (LCG) discs for multiple applications. Faster, smoother and more precise than the 7mm counterparts, these 3mm lightweight discs are rewriting the rules of grinding.
From tight spaces and T-sections to corners and curves – the new Norton Quantum3 LCG wheels grind it all, providing easier access and control, and better visibility when in use. The new grinding discs remove light welds, burrs and excess material quickly and effectively, whilst users can expect speed, accuracy and comfort through reduced vibration.
The Quantum3 LCG discs are a cost-effective solution for smaller jobs that need extra precision and are a great alternative to flap and fibre discs. Lightweight and easy to steer, projects are finished faster and machinery can be used for longer. Due to enhanced performance, less pressure is needed from users, meaning operator fatigue is minimised and product lifespan is increased. With the 3mm discs, operators can remove material in an instant, whilst applying minimal pressure.
The self-sharpening shaped ceramic grains on each disc ensure an effortless glide through workpieces, removing metal quickly and accurately. In fact, the ceramic grains ensure fewer vibrations are felt through the machinery, creating safer and more precise grinding.
With improved grain performance of 80%, the Quantum3 LCG discs minimise machine maintenance, operator fatigue, metallurgical damage and improve part integrity. The discs can also be used with cordless angle grinders for hard-to-reach areas that mains powered machines cannot get to, making them ideal for those working in maintenance and repair on large sites, as well as those that provide mobile repair and installation services.
When used on a cordless angle grinder, Quantum3 LCG discs can remove up to 40% more material than traditional 7mm aluminium oxide grinding discs during one battery charge. While a 7mm disc is ideal for tough and heavy grinding processes, the 3mm is ideal for smaller or more precise jobs. LCG discs also require less machine power on start-up and during use, helping to preserve the life of battery powered grinders by up to 50%.
