New Kinematic Systems in Single-Sided Lapping and their Influence on Lap Wear
Previous studies on one-sided lapping allow to state that not only parameters of lapping elements (i.e. properties of workpiece, abrasive grains and lapping plate) impact on a lapping efficiency. Influential are also kinematics and dynamics of the process. It is crucial to control an average velocity of lapping (v), a distribution of tangential acceleration (at), a nominal pressure (p), a lapping time (t) and disposal of workpiece in separator.Based on kinematics equations and the tribological models, the dimensionless distribution of the material removal volume and the trajectories of abrasive grains cutting on the lap were numerically simulated. Obtained information about excessive wear on lapping plate was the starting point to work out non-standard, single-plate lapping systems.In this paper ideas of unconventional lapping systems were presented. After numerous simulations and careful analysis it was observed, that the most desirable system is radial lapping system. It was point out that other systems are not very different from the standard kinematic system. Generated trajectories of an abrasive grain were almost identical. What is more, effects of kinematical parameters on the trajectories, velocities and accelerations observed in radial lapping system are shown.
