Kuntz Electroplating, a Kitchener, Ontario-based independent OEM chrome-plating supplier of automotive wheels and bumpers, the management watched as hundreds of its workers manually polished its wheels. Because this made it difficult for the company to find, train, and retain the workers it needed, it decided to develop its own automated process for wheel finishing.
Norton NorZon® Plus depressed center wheels now utilize a proprietary blend of patented, newest generation Norton SG ceramic alumina and Norton BlueFire™ zirconia alumina abrasives, combined with a high performance bond system for significantly improved grain micro-fracturing. The upgraded line has also been expanded with Norton NorZon Plus Fast Cut™ Depressed Center Wheels, offering the fastest material removal in the industry.
