Lapping at Axxicon is a precision finishing process that involves rubbing two surfaces together with a fine abrasive paste in between them. The back-and-forth motion of the workpiece during lapping helps to ensure that the abrasive particles are evenly distributed across the surface being lapped, resulting in a smooth, flat finish. The process is used to achieve precise dimensional tolerances, flatness, and surface finish.
At Axxicon, lapping is used in conjunction with other finishing processes, such polishing, to achieve the desired finish on tooling parts. At Axxicon, we have extensive experience in lapping a wide range of materials to achieve the precise dimensional tolerances and surface finish required.
