Application Advantages/Benefits To Customer

Access to right angle welds – Narrow tool and belt profile provide a localized access to repair area. The access does not change during life of abrasive.

Faster weld stock removal – Belts featuring 3MCubitronAbrasive Grain typically have higher cut rates than grinding wheels, rubber bonded or cotton impregnated wheels.

Minimize undercuts – 4" diameter contact wheel less prone to undercuts common with small diameter (<1") wheels found on most portable belt grinders.

Overall reduced finishing costs – Full utilization of abrasives, quicker initial stock removal, reduced abrasive change-over time, more localized, smaller repair area.

One tool for complete finishing system – Elimination of multiple tools needed for cut-down wheels, square pads, and surface conditioning wheels.

Improved consumption of abrasive article – Square pads are ineffective when corners become worn, access diminishes when surface conditioning wheels wear.
