Work holder Discs and Pads – Single Sided Machines
Work holder Discs are used to separate fragile workpieces during lapping and polishing operations to prevent damage. They are also used when work pieces do not lend themselves to batch loading. The discs are made of a PVC / Acrylic and are available from 1/32" to 1" thick and in diameters of 4-3/16" through 35-3/4". Pads are available in sponge rubber or felt material and are used to compensate for minimal height differential in the parts being lapped.
Dual Face Machine Work Carriers
Lapmaster offers work carriers for virtually any dual faced machine currently on the market. Stock materials include spring steel (strongest, most durable; for thin, precision components), steel with molded plastic inserts (for use in lapping and polishing silicon wafers and other sensitive electronic materials), G-10 (fiberglass reinforced, non corroding and non-water absorbing - ideal for thicker parts), PVC (for use with relatively thick parts), lexan (for scratch-free fine polishing applications), vinyl (most economical for short runs), and phenolic (resin-laminated cloth, for use with oil-based slurries). Workholes can be custom cut to suit any part geometry.
