Cut Fast with 3M Precision Shaped Grain

Experience the exceptional cutting performance of the 3M Cubitron II Cloth Belt 997F. This innovative abrasive belt is designed with 3M Precision-Shaped Grain, a revolutionary advancement in abrasive technology. The triangular-shaped grains slice through the substrate, resulting in a fast cut rate and long service life. In fact, this cloth belt lasts up to 2 times longer than conventional abrasives.

Weighted Backing for High-Pressure Applications

When it comes to high-pressure grinding applications, durability is key. That's why the 3M Cubitron II Cloth Belt 997F features a ZF-weight backing. This backing, although less flexible, is heavier and enhances the abrasive's durability. It is specifically designed to withstand heavy-duty stock removal on stainless steel, cobalt chrome, and nickel alloys. Additionally, this cloth belt is equipped with a grinding aid, which helps to keep the abrasive running cooler against the workpiece.

Ideal for Robotic Grinding and Degating

In robotic grinding applications, efficiency is crucial. The 3M Cubitron II Cloth Belt 997F is the ideal choice for medium and high-pressure robotic grinding. Its fast-cutting and long-lasting performance ensures minimal changeouts and downtime in robotic cells. The mineral in the belt continually fractures into sharp edges, allowing it to cut through the life of the belt. This maximizes the efficiency of the cell, enabling you to produce more parts per belt.

Do More in Less Time

With 3M Abrasive Grain, a proprietary mineral, the Cubitron II Cloth Belt 997F offers exceptional cutting speed and sustained performance. The unique "stay sharp" crystalline structure of the mineral continually reveals fresh cutting edges on the surface of the workpiece, ensuring a fast and efficient cut. The 3M Precision-Shaped Grain abrasives, formed through a proprietary process, provide enhanced toughness and hardness, resulting in a longer service life compared to non-ceramic abrasives. By using 3M products, operators can accomplish more work in less time, leading to significant gains in productivity.
