Machining is a very important process in any manufacturing facility. Various machining techniques are adopted by manufacturers for building a perfect product. Lapping is one such prominent machining technique where two material surfaces are rubbed against each other with an abrasive placed between them. This process is performed to flatten the surface, minimize its roughness, or improve the surface appearance of a metal. Manufacturers use various types of lapping abrasives to ease the process. In this post, we will concentrate on Timesaver Lapping Compounds, which are one of the popular types of lapping abrasives used by manufacturers.
