Precision hand lapping fixtures allow for the preparation of planar, parallel, and highly polished surfaces on metallographic specimens, single-crystal wafers, electronic materials, glasses, or other materials.

Lapping processes are also used to generate highly parallel, smooth faces, and to thin specimens to a precise target thickness. This is particularly useful in hand polishing semiconductors, optical components, and for thinning TEM specimens before finishing via dimple polishing.

PELCO lapping fixtures allow for lapping of samples from <1/8  in. (3mm) to 1 in. (25mm) in diameter, and up to 1/2 in. (13 mm) thick. Micrometer and shim-controlled versions are available. Fixtures are equipped with tungsten carbide feet, which are highly resistant to wear from the lapping process.
