Pads (Felt, Sponge Rubber,Tension Pad Sheet)

Felt and Neoprene Sponge Rubber Pad

A felt or sponge pad is used to absorb thickness variations in a load of components within a conditioning ring when using a full size pressure plate. The pad maintains uniform pressure to all components instead of just the tallest components. The maximum variation in component height that the pads will control is approximately .008” to .010”. The pad also protects the top surface of the components from abrasion caused by contact with the pressure plate. Sponge pads are preferred because they don’t soak up slurry and loose compliance. Sponge pads can also be washed to keep them free of excess waste build-up.  

 All Lapmaster single side machines through the Model 48 are shipped with a set of felt or sponge rubber pads. The pads for the Model 12 and 15 are 3/8” thick with all others being 1/2” thick. PSA adhesive backed pads can also be provided. The adhesive will cause the pad to adhere to the pressure plate. This condition is sometimes preferred because of the savings in operator effort.
