3M Power Tools For Body Repair

3M Power Tools For Body Repair

The 3M Power Tools for Body Repair were designed to complement the 3M Cubitron II line of cutting and grinding abrasives portfolio.

3m-automotive-power-tools3M Automotive Aftermarket Division announced today an innovative line of pneumatic tools for cutting and grinding designed with the bodyman in mind.  The 3M Power Tools for Body Repair were designed to complement the 3M Cubitron II line of cutting and grinding abrasives portfolio.

The offering of five new 3M power tools includes the 3M File Belt Sander (18”), 3M Mini File Belt Sander (13”), 3M Cut-Off Wheel Tools (3” & 4”) and 3M Pistol Grip Sander.  The tools feature a sleek new composite body and exceptional quality designed for maximum performance with the 3M Cubitron II line of cutting and grinding abrasives.

The new tools provide the reliable performance body shops and their technicians have come to expect from 3M, all at a great value, the company says. The 3M Power Tools feature:

  • Unique ergonomic design specifically for bodyman applications and automotive substrates
  • Light-weight and durable composite body for user comfort
  • Sleek body design to access hard-to-reach areas
  • Engineered and priced for the collision repair industry
  • Improved safety guard on cut-off wheel tool
  • Variable speed for optimal finish
  • Affordable pricing with exceptional value

“Vehicle dis-assembly, particularly with today’s advanced substrates, creates a tremendous challenge for standard tools and abrasives,” said Dale Ross, U.S. marketing operations manager for 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division. “By developing high-power, high-performance tools designed to work with our unique 3M Cubitron II abrasives, we can provide bodymen the ideal solution for tacking these tough tasks, all at a great value.”

The 3M Cubitron II portfolio of purple abrasive products has quickly become the preferred solution for cutting through paint, welds and metals. And they cut 30 percent faster and last twice as long as other premium abrasives, according to the company.  The 3M Cubitron II abrasive products feature precision-shaped grain technology that form sharp peaks that easily “slice” through paint and filler, even high-strength steel and aluminum. As the triangular shaped ceramic grain wears, it continuously fractures to form sharp points and edges that slice cleaner and faster, stay cooler, last twice as long and leave a consistent finish.
