PELCO precision lapping fixtures

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.

The PELCO Shimmed Lapping Fixture has a magnetic sample mount and uses shims to set sample thickness. It can accommodate samples 0.5 in. (13mm) in diameter and is supplied with shims from 0.0010 in. to 0.0222 in. (0.025 to 0.508mm) in thickness.

The PELCO Lapping Fixture is micrometer-controlled and can accommodate specimens up to 0.5 in. (13mm) in diameter, and 0.5 in. (13mm) in height.

The PELCO Lapping Fixture is micrometer-controlled, and can accommodate specimens up to 1 in. (25mm) in diameter and 0.5 in. (13mm) tall.

The PELCO Lapping Tray is a convenient solution for hand lapping or polishing with any of the PELCO 14100, 14500, 15000 Lapping Fixtures and with the PELCO Tripod Polisher 590.
