Grain on cutting, grinding wheels slices through metal
3M Abrasive Systems has introduced Cubitron™ II Cut & Grind wheels for applications such as grinding, cutting, notching, gouging, fillet weld removal, and beveling of mild steel and stainless steel.
According to the company, the precision-shaped grain enables the abrasive to slice through metal, increasing cutting speed and wheel life. The wheels also cut with less pressure than other types, helping to improve control and potentially reduce operator fatigue. The grains fracture continuously as they wear, forming sharp points and edges.
