Large Orbit Tools Can Significantly Impact Your
Abrasive Cut Performance and Increase Production in the Shop.

Technical Tips from Adam Spah, 3M Automotive Aftermarket Technical Expert

LAS VEGAS, NV (November 4, 2014) – There is often a perception in the auto body industry that the sander of choice is dependent upon what part of the shop it is used in. In some cases this is true, but there is much more to consider. In the past, tool companies have touted the orbit of a dual action sander by “coarse throw” and “fine throw.” This has given the industry a false sense of what the orbit does to the performance of an abrasive disc.

The assumption has been that coarse throw or large orbit tools are used with coarse grade abrasives, while fine throw or small orbit tools are used with fine grade abrasives. With further investigation and testing, this has shown to be a false way to look at sanders and applications.

LAS VEGAS, NV (November 4, 2014) – Heavy duty metalworking can take its toll on tools, abrasive products and the collision repair professionals who use them. Key steps of the disassembly process like weld removal, grinding, panel cutting/sectioning and paint removal quickly wear down traditional abrasive discs and file belts, which means technicians have to repeatedly stop and replace them, and the limited life means technicians have to exert more effort to achieve the desired results.
