Algasan Helical Laps for precision Lapping
the finishing application calls for close tolerance accuracy but
cost is a consideration, it is sometimes difficult to decide what
product provides the best solution. One way would be to use a cylindrical
lap, which will not only achieve the required close tolerance accuracy
required but they will also provide a cost effective solution.
Precision lapping is an abrasive machining process, which when
used in conjunction with a lapping tool provides a low pressure,
two motion (rotation and reciprocation) finishing process that will
result in a cost effective stock removal ranging from a few thousandths
of an inch to several millionths of an inch.
By using Algasan's high quality precision Helical Laps your finishing
requirements can achieve close tolerance surface finishes at a minimal
cost compared with other finishing methods.
There are many applications where Algasan's Helical Laps can improve
and correct imperfections in cylindrical geometry, for example:
- Barrel-shaped bores.
- Improvement in straightness of I.D. or O.D.
- Bell-mouthed bores.
- Tapered I.D. or O.D.
- Out of round conditions.
Cylindrical geometries that have been achieved with helical laps:
- .000005" (5 millionths) roundness
- .000010" (10 millionths) straightness
- Surface finish better than one microinch
