Make the most of automation with 3M Abrasives.

Robotic material removal requires long-lasting, high-quality abrasives. For that reason, 3M abrasive belts, discs and wheels are ideally suited for robotic applications. By using quality abrasives like 3M™ Cubitron™ II, Scotch-Brite™ and 3M™ Trizact™, you can achieve your automation goals – increased productivity, consistency and cost savings. Make the right choice for your investment and put decades of technological research and innovation to work in your robotic cell.

Grinding & Degating

Learn more about metal grinding

In medium and high-pressure applications like gate removal, 3M™ Cubitron™ II abrasive belts cut fast and last long. The mineral continually fractures into sharp edges to keep cutting through the life of the belt, reducing changeouts and downtime in the robotic cell.

Weld Grinding

Learn more about weld grinding

3M Precision-Shaped Grain sets our fibre discs and grinding wheels apart from the competition. This revolutionary self-sharpening grain powers our 3M™ Cubitron™ II and 3M™ Silver abrasives and keeps your robot grinding welds long after other abrasives call it quits.


Learn more about metal deburring

With a wide range of conformability options and high consistency, long-lasting Scotch-Brite™ industrial abrasives are a great option for robotic deburring. A full range of wheels and brushes quickly remove burrs and sharp edges in end-of-arm tooling operations.

Finishing & Polishing

Learn more about metal finishing & polishing

Robotic metal polishing demands the most consistent, refined cut and long abrasive life. Our 3M™ Trizact™ abrasives can consistently deliver near-mirror finishes, while Scotch-Brite™ abrasives can generate a spec-required, aesthetic finish.
