Table Top Lapping Machines

FLUIDCHEM offers a comprehensive range of standard lapping and polishing systems for use across all industrial sectors. Special purpose machines can also be developed for specific applications. Our Lapping Machines are Single Side Machines which are available in various sizes and are suitable for vast majority of lapping applications including high stock removal, ultra hard materials, precision work to light band tolerances.

Typical Applications:

Valve Body Seats, Wedge Seats, Mechanical Seals, Piston Rings, Compressor Components, Pumps & Valves Components, Hydraulic Components, Gauge Blocks, Precision Spacers, Metal Cutting inserts, Bearing Races, Springs, Slitter Knives, Fuel Injection Components, Ceramic, Quartz Crystals, Precision Optics, Optical Flats, Metrological/Measuring Instrument components and so on.


Operationally fast, with high degree of repetitive results with no extra skill.
Stressing of jobs eliminated as no holding force is required
Odd shapes and different materials all can be lapped to a fine finish of 0.3 µm or less and surface finish of 0.02 Ra with absolute uniformity on almost all typesof hard materials.
Variety of materials such as Cast Iron Soft/ Hardened Steel, Stainless teel, Bronze, Aluminium, Carbon, Plastics, Ceramics, Tungsten, Silicon, Stellite, Ferrite, etc. can all be lapped.
One operation surface finish
Significant reduction in lapping costs
Reduced inspection requirements
Optimum geometry and surface finish
Better utilisation of machine time
Cleaner environment conditions

Salient Features:

Lap Plate and Conditioning Rings made from alloy Cast Iron Castings and provided with serrations on top for effective removal of sludge and proper flow abrasive to the work piece.
Conditioning Rings are held in position by adjustable yoke and guide rollers and rotate freely on Lap Plate to continually keep the Plate flat and true.
Design of main spindle bearings impart heavy axial load capacity, maximum stability, long life and smooth performance.
A pump feeds the slurry to the Lap Plate through a jet regulated to required amount.
Smooth Machined weight and felt pads are provided for all the conditioning Rings.
Incorporated with auto-stop through pre-set digital timer.
Main motor is operated using variable frequency drive for jerk free start and smooth stop operations, as well as for operation at variable speed.
