Durability and precision are crucial in the gear, turbine and powertrain industries. For many in these industries conventional bonded abrasives with ceramic, aluminum oxide or silicon carbide mineral can serve as a precise and cost-effective solution. 3M offers a wide range of custom conventional abrasives for precision grinding, microfinishing and every process step in-between.
3M Precision-Shaped Grain is the revolutionary technology behind our 3M™ Cubitron™ II abrasives. The uniformly sized triangles of ceramic aluminum oxide are designed to fracture as they wear, continually forming sharp points and edges that slice cleanly through metal. These sharp cutting edges use less energy than traditional ceramic wheels, while diverting heat away from the workpiece. These free-cutting properties, combined with superior service life, can help improve efficiency and drive down costs.
Conventional precision abrasives featuring 3M Precision-Shaped Grain are a great solution for many hard metals, including:
Manufacturers in the powertrain industry demand precise, reliable abrasive products for many substrates and applications. Since each component goes through multiple process steps – from gear grinding to microfinishing – powertrain manufacturers need a partner who can deliver an abrasive solution for each stage.
3M offers one of the world’s most exhaustive portfolios of precision abrasives for grinding and finishing powertrain components. This portfolio includes industry leading abrasive solutions along with unparalleled technical service and support.
