What materials can the 3M™ Cubitron™ II Depressed Center Grinding Wheel, 64317 grind?
Our grinding wheel is designed to cut through a wide range of metals including stainless steel, iron, bronze and aluminum as well as other materials like fiberglass.
Can this product be used with any type of grinder?
The 3M™ Cubitron™ II Depressed Center Grinding Wheel, 64317 has a Quick Change feature which makes it easy to use only on compatible grinders. It is important to check that your tool's spindle size matches the size indicated on the packaging.
How many wheels are included in an order?
An order includes twenty(20) wheels packaged in two (2) individual inner cartons with ten (10) wheels per inner carton.
Does this grinding wheel generate less dust compared to conventional abrasives?
Yes! The precision shaped grain technology incorporated into our CubitronTMII abrasive grains significantly reduces dust production during operation resulting in cleaner work environment for operators.
.How long-lasting are these grinding wheels?
A.The lifespan of the wheel depends on several factors including material being ground, operator technique among others. However our proprietary Ceramic Precision-Shaped Grain formula provides longer life than most comparable discs available meaning they last longer even under high pressure applications.
3M™ Cubitron™ II Depressed Center Grinding Wheel is designed to exceed the performance of other grinding wheels in both cut and life, resulting in significant gains in productivity. The power of 3M Precision-Shaped Grain provides a cool, extra-sharp, quick cut that lasts longer than other wheels.Ideal for Robotic Weld Grinding
For medium and high-pressure applications like robotic weld grinding, it is crucial to choose a high-performance abrasive that cuts fast and lasts long. The self-fracturing mineral in 3M™ Cubitron™ II Depressed Center Grinding Wheel ensures that your robot can grind welds for a longer time, reducing downtime and maximizing efficiency.Grinding Wheel: Tips for Optimum Use
A grinding wheel is a rigid resin-bonded wheel that is approximately 1/4" thick and is useful for removing welds from internal angles. Fiber discs are typically better for grinding welds on flat surfaces. A grinding wheel must be used with a right angle grinder that has a wheel guard designed for the size of the wheel used. Type 27 wheels have a depressed center that allows grinding at any angle without damaging the surrounding surface. The grinding wheel must have a maximum operating speed greater than or equal to the maximum speed of the grinder used.3M Precision-Shaped Grain Maximizes Cutting Potential
3M™ Cubitron™ II products have set a new standard for high-performing abrasives. 3M engineers used proprietary precision-shaped grain technology to maximize cutting potential, starting with 3M™ ceramic abrasive grain. Precision-shaped grain fractures into super-sharp points and edges that slice cleanly through metal, rather than plowing like traditional abrasives, ensuring extended high performance in heavy-duty production applications. The grains wear evenly and provide extra-long life and consistency with less grinding pressure. 3M™ Cubitron™ II abrasives outcut and outlast competitive ceramic abrasives, maximizing productivity and minimizing operator fatigue.
