Automatic
Vibrating Lap
by
Covington

Takes all the work out of lapping. Just load, start & walk away.
Covingtopn vibrating laps are designed to abrade and polish automatically. The inertia of the heavy rock slab holds it relatively still while the lap pan vibrates underneath. This action replaces the circular rotation used by conventional lapping machines. This machine has a grooved pan for fast cutting, a bumper ring to prevent damage to the slabs. A polish pad insert into the grooved pan allows workpiece to be polished in the same pan. One thumb screw releases pan for easy cleaning. Comes complete with 110v, 60hz motor, polishing pad, bumper ring, grooved pan, instructions and guarantee.

Comes complete with 110V, 60 HZ motor, polish pad, bumper ring, instructions and guarantee.

Contempo Vib Lap
"VI-BRO-LAP"

Diamond Pacific
bought out
Contempo.
These heavy-duty laps can accommodate a number of specimens at the same time.
Oscillating lap motion rotates workpieces Each machine provides rapid grinding and polishing in circular oscillating motion without damaging the slabbed edges.

The tempered aluminum lap plates are V-grooved in a criss-cross square-grid pattern. This permits abrasive particles to circulate between the lap plate and the piece being worked. The abrasive is being continually crushed to a smaller size while performing its grinding or polishing action. The breaking down of the particles reduces the number of grit sizes needed.

After the bottom side of the workpiece is ground flat to a satin smooth surface, the lap plate can be turned over to the other side on which a polishing pad is cemented. The Workpiece can be put on the pad along with a polishing compound to produce a fine mirror-like finish.

Comes complete with a 1/3 HP 110V 60Hz Motor, one medium Lapmate, polish pad, and galvanized circle.

(Export Models come with a 1/3 HP 220V 50Hz Motor)

Accessories

"Lapmate"
Lead Weights

Lapmate

These adjustable lead weights hold slabs of almost any shape for vibratory lapping. They have independent adjustable retaining pins to hold a slab in place. Lapping time is reduced considerably because the surface is evenly lapped. The "lapmate" can be left unattended once it is adjusted to proper fit and secured tight.
