Engis (UK) Ltd. has unveiled a benchtop four-way, double-sided lapping and polishing machine for research applications and short production runs in precision optical and small component manufacturing. The Engis 432 planetary machine is flexible, lapping most precision optics and advanced materials, including sapphire, GaN, SiC and other optical materials. It can be operated in unmanned mode, either timed or thickness-controlled, if required, while still maintaining its accuracy and repeatability. Despite its compact size, it can accommodate components measuring up to 55 mm in diameter, with 18-mm maximum thickness, making it able to produce a wide range of precision components. Available accessories include cast iron lap plates, stainless steel plates for pad polishing, composite metal diamond polishing plates, an abrasive lapping slurry pump and a diamond dispensing system.
