3M just released a new silver cut-off wheel designed for the quick, efficient cutting of metal pipes, tubes, flat sheets, and more. While the product has competitive upfront costs, the durability and quick cutting will save your company money in the long run because 3M’s wheel can last upwards of 186 inches without needing a replacement, whereas other wheels must be replaced after every 43-99 inches of cutting.
3M microreplication technology forms sharp peaks that “slice” through metal. Traditional ceramic abrasives “plow” through the metal generating more heat which slows down cutting and shortens life. Maintaining a very high cut rate over it’s life versus the competition with cooler running temps, 3M Silver cut off wheels are setting a new standard. Fewer wheel changes and more finished parts per wheel, helps improve shop productivity and cost control.
3M’s cutting wheel is designed to quickly cut through metal pipes, tubes flat sheets and more, with a durability that extends the life of the wheel for great performance value. 3M Precision-Shaped Grain cuts exceptionally fast, helping increase productivity. This product may be used on a variety of substrates such as carbon steel and stainless steel, and is compatible with tools and accessories designed for cut-off wheels
