Combining more than 150 years experience in material removing technology, the CITCO Diamond & cBN Products and Gardner Abrasives companies of Cinetic Landis Corp. have engineered and committed to supply the industry with the most advanced solutions for high- performance metalcutting and abrasive machining.
CITCO has supplied solutions for the world's toughest metalcutting and abrasive machining applications since 1939. As a world leader in the development of superabrasive products, CITCO offers a broad selection of diamond and cBN grinding wheels using advanced technology to meet the needs of manufacturers producing everything from high-volume automotive engine components to high-technology electronics and advanced ceramic composites. Superabrasive technologies available include metal, vitrified, resin and hybrid bonds, plus abrasive shapes, configurations and patented technologies.
Gardner Abrasives was founded in 1905 by Frederick Gardner in Beloit, Wisconsin and is one of the world's most experienced suppliers of engineered abrasive products for all double disc grinding applications. Gardner's engineers use this extensive knowledge base to develop highly productive solutions to meet customer requirements for precision, quality and efficiency in their grinding operations.
Gardner Abrasive discs are custom-formulated from a range of carefully selected high performance materials, proven engineered formulations and established design criteria. Based on the customer's particular machine, process and component application, Gardner engineers select the optimum abrasive grain type and size, disc grade and structure, bond type, disc configuration, construction and mounting features to produce disc grinding wheels to meet any requirements.
The combined CITCO and Gardner Abrasives product range includes cylinder wheels, centerless wheels, roll grinding wheels, superabrasive wheels and a full line of truing and dressing tools,which includes rotary dressers for high production applications. CITCO products also include polycristalline diamond (PCD) and polycristalline cBN (pcbn) cutting tools that are engineered to reduce costs and provide maximum value for metal cutting applications.
