Hyprolapping is a process that allows two sides of a flat part to be ground simultaneously. Parts are inserted into custom-made fixtures or ”sprockets” which rotate in an orbital motion through the lapping wheels. Hyprolapping is the most efficient method for grinding small parts when both sides of the part need to be ground. Both ferrous and non-ferrous (magnetic and non-magnetic) materials can be Hyprolapped. The lapping process achieves close tolerances for flatness and parallelism, and is particularly useful for processing parts made from thin materials.
