  • Camshaft and Crankshaft Grinding (PDF, 5.93 MB)

    Our comprehensive abrasives portfolio offers solutions that cover everything from rough grinding to superfinishing of steel and cast steel alloys – ideal for camshaft and crankshaft applications.

  • Centerless Grinding (PDF, 5.93 MB)

    To get perfectly round parts from the centerless grinding process, you need the right machine and the right abrasives. That’s why professionals in the powertrain, bearing and cutting tool manufacturing industries use 3M abrasives to grind their parts.

  • Creep Feed/Surface Grinding (PDF, 307.56 KB)

    Surface and creep-feed grinding are frequently used in the turbine industry and powertrain manufacturing. The process is divided into several steps, and consistent material removal is essential – making 3M abrasives the ideal solution.

  • Cylindrical ID Grinding

    Inside diameter (ID) grinding is used to refine bores and race profiles with a high-precision fit. We offer conventional and superabrasive wheels designed to achieve a cool cut with the lowest possible contact pressure and optimal free-cutting performance.

  • Cylindrical OD Grinding

    Outside diameter (OD) grinding is one of the most commonly used grinding techniques. Our grinding wheels cut cool and perform well with low contact pressure, making them an ideal choice for manufacturers across multiple markets.

  • Gear Grinding (PDF, 583.33 KB)

    Gear grinding requires high precision, so it’s important to use the right grinding wheel for the application. Thankfully 3M offers a robust abrasives portfolio covering bevel gear grinding, threaded gear grinding and single rib gear grinding.

  • Microfinishing (PDF, 11.63 MB)

    3M microfinishing film has been trusted in the powertrain segment for decades for its consistent, predictable performance. The micron-graded mineral produces a consistent, repeatable finish, and 3M innovation continues to drive the technology forward.

  • Tool Grinding (PDF, 795.97 KB)

    The manufacturing of cutting tools includes multiple process steps and the hardest materials. 3M designs and manufactures high-performance grinding wheels designed for tool grinding applications like fluting, gashing, OD grinding, end work and more.
