C R Industries Inc. is a leading provider of lapping carriers & workholders. We can cut sprocket/gear tooth disc sizes up to 60″ in diameter. We can hold tolerances of +/-0.004″. We can make your lapping carriers out of a wide range of materials. We stock a variety of thicknesses of blue tempered spring steel. PVC and phenolic carriers are available upon request also.
Lapping carriers fill a need in grinding and polishing disk-shaped articles. They fit into lapping machines that remove trash or scratches from some types of manufacturing product surfaces. Special pieces such as optical elements, silicon wafers, crystals and magnetic recording device components may need grinding or polishing. Lapping carriers, sometimes called “work holders,” help support them during the process. Our extensive inventory provides a source of new and replacement parts that we can adapt to meet your project’s dimensions.
