—Obtaining special quality surfaces as well as
higher dimensional and geometrical precision entails
deployment of surface smoothing processes, one of which is
lapping. A lapping process is strongly influenced by a number
of input parameters, the most important ones being machining
speed, pressure, duration of lap plate – abrasive paste –
workpiece contact, kinematics of the machine-tool etc. The
paper presents a study on the influence of machining speed in
lapping on the roughness of metal surfaces.
