What is the 3M™ Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt 997F?
The 3M™ Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt 997F is a high-performance abrasive belt designed for use in various industrial applications.
What makes this product stand out from other abrasives?
This cloth belt features precision-shaped ceramic grain technology that stays consistently sharp, cuts faster and lasts longer than conventional abrasives. Additionally, it has an X-weight cloth backing that offers durability and resists tears and cracks.
What are the recommended applications for this product?
This particular variant, with grit size of 36+, would be ideal for stock removal on tough metals such as stainless steel or nickel alloys.
Is it easy to install these belts onto machinery?
Yes! Its Sinelok feature allows quick changes without tools while still maintaining good alignment which means maximum productivity even when switching between workpieces.
How many pieces come in each package of this product?
: Each pack contains ten (10) individual cloth belts per case.
3M™ Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt 997F is an abrasive that has all the unique benefits of Cubitron™ II abrasives. It has a fast cut rate, long service life, less heat stress, and 3M Precision-Shaped Grain. The triangular-shaped 3M Precision-Shaped Grain is a revolutionary advancement in abrasive technology that slices through the substrate. This results in a cloth belt that lasts up to 2x as long as conventional abrasives. The ZF-weight backing on Cloth Belt 997F sets it apart.Weighted Backing for High-Pressure Applications
ZF-weight backings are less flexible than other backings but heavier. The weightiness of the backing enhances the abrasive's durability. 3M chose a ZF-weight backing for this abrasive, so it would be able to withstand high-pressure grinding applications. It is especially suited for heavy-duty stock removal on stainless steel, cobalt chrome, and nickel alloys. It also features a grinding aid, which is an added coating that helps the abrasive run cooler against the workpiece.Ideal for Robotic Grinding and Degating
For medium and high-pressure applications like robotic grinding, it's important to choose a premium abrasive belt like the fast-cutting, long-lasting 3M™ Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt 997F. The mineral in the belt continually fractures into sharp edges to keep cutting through the life of the belt, reducing changeouts and downtime in robotic cells. This helps maximize the efficiency of the cell, allowing you to produce more parts per belt.Do More in Less Time
Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt 997F has 3M™ Abrasive Grain, a proprietary 3M mineral. This mineral is chemically engineered with a unique "stay sharp" crystalline structure that continually reveals fresh cutting edges on the surface of the workpiece. It ensures an exceptionally fast and sustained cut. Formed through a proprietary process to enhance toughness and hardness of the grain, 3M Precision-Shaped Grain abrasives offer a longer service life than non-ceramic abrasives. 3M products enable operators to do more work in less time for significant gains in productivity.
