Depressed Center Wheels
Norton Abrasives has introduced Gemini XXL, the fastest grinding 100% aluminum oxide depressed center wheels on the market. Providing 50% more life and metal removal than standard aluminum oxide wheels, Gemini XXL works best on hard-grade carbon steel applications, weld repairs, flashing and jobs that require a quick turnaround. “The new Gemini XXL wheels help metalfab users dramatically improve productivity and material output,” said Debbie Gaspich, Norton Abrasives Director of Product Management, North America.
“Gemini XXL’s increased metal removal rates and improved overall performance make it an exceptional value when compared to standard aluminum oxide wheels.” For example, in a field case study on right angle grinding long, light post welds, a 4-1/2” x ¼” x 5/8-11” Gemini XXL wheel was tested against a standard aluminum oxide wheel on a 4-1/2”, 10 AMP grinder. The Gemini XXL removed 43% more material and performed 106% better than a competitive wheel for an annual savings of over $5,700. - more - Manufactured in the U.S.A. in Norton’s Texas-based facility, Gemini XXL wheels feature quality aluminum oxide abrasive for consistent, maximum performance. They are available in ¼” Type 27 wheels in diameters ranging from 4 ½” to 9” and heights of 7/8” and 5/8-11”, ten SKU’s in total.
