Kemet Lapping Aircraft and Aerospace Components – Diamond Class

With the need for ever harder materials the challenge of achieving precise geometries and finishes has become ever more demanding, requiring the most precise abrasives.
It is one of the reasons why MACH exhibitor Kemet International’s diamond lapping and polishing systems are widely used in the aircraft and aerospace industries in OEM and maintenance as they offer the most efficient and reliable method of producing precision flat, polished surfaces.

The GTMA supplier’s ISO 9001: 2015 assured diamond abrasives enable precision lapping of aircraft components in both production and service environments. Each slurry or compound is a specific concentration of graded diamond powder, blended with a chemical carrier, to achieve optimum stock removal and surface finish, ease of cleaning, temperature resistance and lubricity. A wide range of flat lapping machines enable lapping of hydraulic parts, engine seals and bearings and metal-Bottom of Formto-metal faced seals on pumps and valves. Simply adding a Kemet composite annular grooved plate offers precise shoulder lapping of gear faces. Landing gear components can also be effectively lapped with diamond and the intricate internal faces / diameters, along with
other aviation sub assemblies, polished using diamond compound with Kemet’s portable hand lap kits and Helilaps. Pump, valve and engine seals up to 300mm diameters in a variety of materials (e.g. Tungsten Carbide, Stellite, Ceramic, Silicon Carbide, Carbon, Brass) can all be lapped and polished, some to a mirror finish where required. This is under production conditions using diamond to a flatness of two to three light bands (<0.001mm).
