3M launches new range of metalworking tools


Industries that work with metal face many different demands.

But they all share the same needs – to raise quality levels and reduce production times and costs, while achieving exacting standards.

At 3M Australia, their unique technologies, global expertise and commitment to customers combine to provide an evolving range of world-class abrasive solutions.

The company, through its Industrial Business, has recently launched the 3M Metalworking Tools (2023 Series).  This follows the successful launch last year of
the 3M Air Tools (Random Orbital Sanders).

“The new range of powerful air tools are ideally suited for the metalworking market,” says Chris LeBlanc, marketing operations manager for the Industrial Business.

The new line of air tools includes Disc Sanders, Die Grinders and Cut-Off Wheel tools.

Each features innovative 3M technology and design to optimise performance, including improved handgrips using 3M Greptile grips for all the tools. The 3M Greptile Gripping Material utilises an impressive micro replication technology pioneered by 3M. This revolutionary patented material offers a precise grip with minimal effort.
