Lapping, Fine Grinding & Polishing
We provide complete flat surface finishing
Contract Lapping- It's what we do!
Double-Sided Machining is the most desirable choice when processing
is required on both sides of a part, or when there is a need for precise
thickness, parallelism or flatness on both sides of the part.
Single-Sided high speed lapping allows a competitive alternative
to grinding with better finished part quality.
Listed below are listed some typical applications that are ideally suited to
First surface referencing for subsequent operations
Small, thin or "hard to hold" pieces
Fuel injector components
Any sealing face/surface
Gear and rotary pumps
Slitter knives and spacers
Valve plates and bodies
Ceramic, glass, powdered metal, Metal injection molding, carbide, titanium,
molybdenum, stainless steel, Inconel and other hard to machine materials.
Hard coat anodized surfaces
Extrusion, CNC and screw machine "cut off" sizing
Precision Fine-Grinding (also called flat honing) is a relatively new
process, having been introduced in the late 1980's. This process achieves a
superior surface finish when compared to conventional grinding, but also
provides faster stock removal than traditional lapping processes. This type
of finishing is best suited to products requiring a high stock-removal rate,
but where traditional grinding would provide too rough a surface finish, or
where precise tolerances are required. Listed below are typical applications
for precision fine-grinding.
Metal Injection Molded parts
Powdered Metal (Sintered) parts
Carbides and Cutting Inserts
Precision Piston Rings
Automotive sensing devices
Hydraulic Gear Pump Components
Polishing is the most desirable choice when a superior surface finish is
required. Surface finishes can be achieved that are superior to any other
method. Listed below are some typical applications for polishing.
