This RFQ was sourced on www.MFG.com in USA for Lapping

Now the parts are ground to an 8 rms however, we would like  to improve the finish for plating. You would get the part  with a stock finish at around .125 thk.  We need a  consistent finish that is reproducable.  We need 20 parts  to prove out the method before we do the production.  I  don’t know if lapping or polishing is the best method.  We  will work with any suggestions for the best method.  Thanks.

Lapping: Lapping is a finishing process used to refine surfaces by making very flat surfaces very fine finishes. Lapping uses loose abrasives suspended in a fluid. In the lapping process, parts are processed between large flat plates or platens. Lapped surface finishes are measured in microns and nanometers.
