- 3M Precision-Shaped Grain blend provides significantly longer life than comparable aluminum oxide belts
- Proprietary mineral provides consistent, faster
results on medium pressure applications, helping to improve productivity
- Reduces changeouts and downtime in robotic and pressure-assisted applications
- Moderately flexible backing provides conformability for grinding and blending both straight and contoured surfaces
- YF-weight polyester backing is used for Grades 36-80, while lighter XF-weight polyester backing is used for Grades 120-180
- Grinding aid cools abrasive processes on heat-sensitive alloys
- Suitable for wet and dry applications on all metals
- Durable resin bond resists deterioration from heat, extending the life of the belt
Outstanding Performance on Medium Pressure Applications
engineered our 3M™ Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt 784F with medium pressure
industrial applications in mind, using 3M Precision-Shaped Grain, which
cuts exceptionally fast and self-sharpens during grinding. This
high-performing belt contains a ceramic and aluminum oxide blend that
delivers cost-effective performance on medium-pressure applications,
where a full ceramic belt may be underutilized.
Coarse grades 36-80 have a YF-weight backing, while finer grades of
120-180 have a lighter XF-weight backing. Both weights are moderately
flexible and conform well to slight contours and flat surfaces.
Ideal for Robotic Grinding and Degating
medium and high-pressure applications like robotic grinding, it's
important to choose a premium abrasive belt like the fast-cutting,
long-lasting 3M™ Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt 784F. The mineral in the belt
continually fractures into sharp edges to keep cutting through the life
of the belt, reducing changeouts and downtime in robotic cells. This
helps maximize the efficiency of the cell, allowing you to produce more
parts per belt.
Run it Wet or Dry
its water-resistant polyester backing, 3M™ Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt 784F
may be run wet or dry. To protect heat sensitive alloys such as
stainless steel, titanium, nickel alloys and cobalt alloys from
heat-related stress cracks and discoloration, we incorporated a grinding
aid to help reduce grinding temperatures. Additionally, the abrasive is
firmly bonded to the backing with resin to maintain durability under
high heat and pressure.
The Science of 3M Precision-Shaped Grain Blend
Precision-Shaped Grain is a major advancement in abrasive technology.
This ceramic mineral is designed using a proprietary process to enhance
toughness and hardness of the grain. 3M scientists then went one step
further and engineered the mineral to form uniform triangular shaped
grains that continually fracture into super-sharp points and edges that
slice through the substrate, rather than gouging or "plowing" like
conventional abrasives. It creates a super-fast cut and lessens heat
build-up on the workpiece, reducing heat-related stress cracks and
discoloration. Moreover, because 3M Precision-Shaped Grain stays cooler
and sharper, it lasts longer than conventional abrasives.
Engineered for Demanding Industrial Environments
more than 100 years 3M has been a leading abrasive supplier of the
metalworking industry. With a wide combination of minerals, backings and
bonds, regardless of your grinding and finishing applications, 3M
offers a full line of quality coated and bonded abrasives. The
exceptionally fast cut and long life of 3M Precision Shaped Grain makes
it ideal for industrial environments. Trust 3M™ Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt
784F to produce immediate, uniform results over the life of the product
on all metals, including heat-sensitive alloys.
