<< www.larsonelectronics.com; 800-369-6671>>
Larson Electronics (Kemp, TX) announces the release of a new
low profile LED wall pack light with 100’ cord. This 60 watt LED
light offers high light output from a compact form factor and is
designed to provide a more durable and long lived alternative to
halogen and metal halide units. The LEDWP-600E-100C produces
a wide flood beam without the high heat, fragile construction, or
high energy costs of incandescent lighting, says the company. The
light assembly consists of forty-five LEDs paired with high purity
optics to produce a wide light distribution overpowering that of
a 500 watt quartz flood light. This light is constructed of three
angled boards that help provide a wider spread.
Resin Fiber Discs
Norton/Saint Gobain Abrasives
(Worcester, MA) has recently introduced a new line of
resin fiber discs — Norton
Neon F726. The new line of
Aluminum Oxide (AO) fiber
discs offers a proprietary aluminum oxide and organic grain blend, resulting in up to three times
the normal AO cut rate, life, and overall performance, says the
company. Features include:
• An improved resin bond system and heavy-duty fiber backing,
providing enhanced grain adhesion in the Neon F726 line.
• A unique AO blend that allows for a significantly faster initial
cut rate, which is sustained throughout the life of the disc.
• Availability in grits 24 through 120, which makes them suitable
for a number of metal fabrication applications.
These discs are primarily used in metal fabrication and welding;
light to moderately demanding right angle grinding applications;
as well as blending of mild carbon steel and aluminum.
