Lapping With Abrasive Media

The Aero Lap YT-300 from Okamoto is a lapping machine that uses an abrasive media to create highly polished mirror finishes on a variety of materials and irregular shapes. The machine is versatile and can be used for fine polishing pins, punches, dies, small-size molds and jewelry without damaging the surfaces. By creating the a balance of moisture and diamond particulate in the abrasive lapping media, the machine forms multi-cones that are directed by air nozzles and air pressure to polish part surfaces in multiple passes at high speed.

By creating the a balance of moisture and diamond particulate in the abrasive lapping media, the machine forms multi-cones that are directed by air nozzles and air pressure to polish part surfaces in multiple passes at high speed. The company says the multi-cones shorten cycle time for final polishing.

The machine has many features that boost productivity and ensure a highly polished mirror finish even on complex parts, according to the company. These features include: the machine’s design and use of multi-cone technology to achieve high level lapping without excessive damage to parts; an environmentally friendly approach that produces little to no waste; a long life cycle and low running cost; and an easy to operate control system.
