3M Abrasive Systems’ 3M Cubitron II gear grinding wheels combine the company’s precision-shaped grain and bonding systems to promote consistent, high-quality finishes and tight geometry tolerances. The grains are designed to continuously fracture as they wear, forming sharp points and edges to slice through metal. According to the company, the wheels provide increased throughput, reduced wheel dressing, reduced risk of burning and extended wheel life. Single-rib, threaded and spiral-bevel configurations also are available.
