Algasan Helical Laps for precision Lapping

Algasan Helical Laps for Precision LappingWhen 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
