The automotive industry is evolving. The trend toward more electromobility is also changing the way cars are being manufactured. In some cases, this has a serious impact, not only on automakers themselves, but also on suppliers.

Among other things, 3M supplies the automotive industry with abrasives for machining gears and shafts.
