Saint Gobain Norton APS CellSaint-Gobain Abrasives will debut its Norton Abrasive Process Solutions (APS) program, established to help customers determine the optimal grinding or finishing solution for the application at hand, ranging from simple to complex, off-hand or automated, and for metal fabrication, production grinding and virtually any abrasive operation. The APS program is positioned to be an extension of the customer, where tests can be conducted so that customers do not have to reassign limited inhouse resources and pause their own production.

The APS automation cell can deliver abrasive-to-part and part-to-abrasive applications, wet/dry processing, and use a full range of abrasives such as coated, non-woven, thin wheel, bonded and superabrasives. Equipped with a verified turnkey solution, manufacturers then can contact an automation system integrator to implement the solution. The cell features an industrial robot with a 210-kg load capacity and fitted with an end-of-arm gripper to allow for part-to-media processing, as well as tool changers that use traditional hand tools to perform abrasive-to-part processing.
