Electroplated Diamond  Lapping Plates / Discs

As a total solutions provider for lapidaries and the stone industry, we complement our range of graded diamond micron powders with electroplated diamond laps for stone polishing.

 For fast and effective polishing, Gem Lapping Discs provide sparkling luster to a wide range of stones such as rubies, emeralds and cabochons as well as on jaspers, agates and similar materials. Lapping discs are available from 60 mesh (and coarser if required) to 3000 mesh (and finer if required) in diameters from 6 inch to 36 inch in diameter, with or without aluminum backing (master laps)  for support.

Also available with self adhesive and magnetic backing for easy mounting.

Innovations in the design of the laps bring about continuous improvements in the performance of lapping discs in areas where conventional discs are not effective. Our team of design engineers have taken great interest to understand the smallest troubles that are faced by the lapidarians and have designed discs to take care of even that last niggling problem.

Developed specifically for those interested in manufacturing beads of precious and semi-precious stones, our range of profiled lapping discs is available in the entire range of grit sizes from 60 mesh and coarser to 1200 mesh and finer. These discs are made to order with grooves of specified sizes to make manufacturing of any size of beads as simple as possible. Mirror-finish beads of virtually any material can be easily obtained by using a set of profiled discs starting with coarse discs to generate form, and progressing to finer discs to impart finish.

Spot-Deposited Laps

 A recurring problem with plane lapping discs in ultrafine sizes, or when polishing large rock samples is the "pulling" or "suction" action which causes the workpiece to be pulled from the hand of the operator. Another problem is slurry removal. Often, large amounts of slurry are generated which choke the lap, requiring a shutdown of the process for sludge removal, consequently reducing productivity. An innovative type of lapping disc was developed to solve this problem. Spot Deposited Laps are specifically designed for this purpose,  allowing for uninterrupted cutting and hence, higher productivity. 

 

   Apart from these types there are a host of other possibilities to manufacture lapping discs to suit your individual requirements, and to resolve the smallest problem that you may face, whether their application is in lapidaries, engineering or stone industry.
