  • Automotive crankshaft

    Camshaft and Crankshaft Grinding

    Our comprehensive abrasives portfolio offers solutions that cover everything from rough grinding to superfinishing of steel and cast steel alloys – ideal for camshaft and crankshaft applications.

  • Centerless grinding with 3M Cubitron II grinding wheel

    Centerless Grinding

    To get perfectly round parts from the centerless grinding process, you need the right machine and the right abrasives. That’s why professionals in the powertrain, bearing and cutting tool manufacturing industries use 3M abrasives to grind their parts.

  • Surface grinding with 3M Cubitron II abrasives

    Creep Feed/Surface Grinding

    Surface and creep-feed grinding are frequently used in the turbine industry and powertrain manufacturing. The process is divided into several steps, and consistent material removal is essential – making 3M abrasives the ideal solution.

  • ID grinding with 3M Cubitron II grinding wheel

    Cylindrical ID Grinding

    Inside diameter (ID) grinding is used to refine bores and race profiles with a high-precision fit. We offer conventional and superabrasive wheels designed to achieve a cool cut with the lowest possible contact pressure and optimal free-cutting performance.

  • Outside diameter grinding of automotive camshaft

    Cylindrical OD Grinding

    Outside diameter (OD) grinding is one of the most commonly used grinding techniques. Our grinding wheels cut cool and perform well with low contact pressure, making them an ideal choice for manufacturers across multiple markets.

  • Bevel gear grinding with 3M Cubitron II grinding wheel

    Gear Grinding

    Gear grinding requires high precision, so it’s important to use the right grinding wheel for the application. Thankfully 3M offers a robust abrasives portfolio covering bevel gear grinding, threaded gear grinding and single rib gear grinding.

  • Automotive crankshaft in a microfinishing application

    Microfinishing

    3M microfinishing film has been trusted in the powertrain segment for decades for its consistent, predictable performance. The micron-graded mineral produces a consistent, repeatable finish, and 3M innovation continues to drive the technology forward.

  • Cutting tool grinding with a CBN grinding wheel

    Tool Grinding

    The manufacturing of cutting tools includes multiple process steps and the hardest materials. 3M designs and manufactures high-performance grinding wheels designed for tool grinding applications like fluting, gashing, OD grinding, end work and more.
