Grinding is the foundation of metalworking, and 3M has the cutting-edge abrasive products you need for every stage of the process, including weld grinding, beveling, gate removal and even cylindrical grinding. 3M™ Cubitron™ II Abrasives run cooler and grind longer due to their continuously fracturing precision-shaped grains – increasing productivity and reducing downtime.
Long-lasting discs, wheels and belts that make the daily grind easier.
With abrasive belts, grinding wheels, fibre and flap discs engineered specifically for grinding processes, 3M has a product to suit your specific needs. These products remove metal and level welds without overheating or prematurely wearing down.
For heavy welds and rough surfaces, trust 3M™ Cubitron™ II Depressed Center Grinding Wheels. 3M™ Cubitron™ II Fibre Disc 982C is the right choice when speed is your goal, while user-friendly 3M™ Cubitron™ II Flap Discs deliver a fine finish with ease.
Cast parts must be degated before they can move to the next process step. Watch how efficiently a robot removes gates using a 3M™ Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt 984F.

Put 3M Precision-Shaped Grain to work for you with the new 3M™ Flap Disc 769F. Combined with a durable polyester backing, the self-sharpening mineral excels in beveling and weld grinding applications. And the best part? This high-performance disc comes at a price designed to help keep your abrasive spend in check.
After welding, you often need to level the weld and smooth the surface. To accomplish this, we recommend using a Cubitron™ II fibre disc, flap disc, or depressed center grinding wheel. This allows you to quickly remove the weld and create a level surface.
Beveling is done to shapes edges of your workpiece prior to welding. This can be done using either a fibre disc, flap disc, depressed center grinding wheel, or even with an abrasive belt. Our selection of metalworking abrasives can help you take the edge off of any metal part or substrate.
