Product Description

The Lapmaster Wolters Model 48 machine features rugged construction, and is equipped with a 48 inch (1219 mm) diameter cast iron lap plate.
The lap plate is made up of individual segments bolted to a cast iron support plate. These segments are massive enough to provide long life in high production environments, even with multi-shift operation. the surrounding work table can be simply adjusted as the lap plate wears, so that the sharp edge is never exposed.
The lap plate drive system uses a separate motor and worm and wheel mechanical reduction gear box with multi-belt drive, and is mounted in a floor standing base.
This is a fabricated steel channel framework with removable panels for ease of access during maintenance.
The drive system incorporates as standard an electronic soft start which will smoothly accelerate the lap plate from stand still to full speed over a controlled time period. This is preset, though it can be adjusted if required, to suit particular process conditions.
The machine uses a free abrasive slurry, which is supplied from a separate free standing reservoir, equipped with a pump and driven agitator. A diamond slurry dispensing system can also be fitted if required. Outlets are provided to feed each conditioning ring via a track wire, with individual control valves. This system is designed so that a circulatory flow is established. The pump is capable of delivering far more slurry to the outlets than is necessary.
The excess is returned to the reservoir via a sloping drain tube. This together with the constant agitations provided by the stirrer minimizes the tendency of the abrasive grains to settle out in the vehicle.
This machine is also available in a pneumatic lift version.
