Grinding of Brake Pad for the Aerospace Industry
(click on thumbnail to enlarge)
Precise Lapping & Grinding Corp. was contracted by a customer in the aerospace industry to perform the precision grinding of this steel brake rotor segment. The required tolerances were extremely demanding, and PLG worked with the customer and a trusted abrasive manufacturer to develop the treatment process and the appropriate abrasive product to achieve specification. The rotor segment was composed of EMS 124 steel, measuring 5" in length by 3" in width by 0.700" in thickness.
Finishing requirements were met with our double disc grinding process, achieving parallelism to 0.0005". In process testing and inspections were carried out to ensure accuracy including height, flatness, and parallelism verifications. Turnaround time for this project is 5 to 7 days. For more details about this double disc grinding project, or our flat surfacing capabilities please see the table below or contact us directly.
