Abstract

For the simultaneous lapping of the edges of a number of identical workpieces 1, several support faces 2 are arranged one above the other in frames 3. On each support face 2 several workpieces 1, located side by side, are forced against impact edges 6 on the front side of support faces 2 by one spring 4 and one stem 5 each. The edges to be lapped protrude from cover plate 7 which is pivotable on frame 3 for the insertion and withdrawal of workpieces 1.

Lapping Edges of Workpieces

For the simultaneous lapping of the edges of a number of identical workpieces 1, several support faces 2 are arranged one above the other in frames 3. On each support face 2 several workpieces 1, located side by side, are forced against impact edges 6 on the front side of support faces 2 by one spring 4 and one stem 5 each. The edges to be lapped protrude from cover plate 7 which is pivotable on frame 3 for the insertion and withdrawal of workpieces 1.

On their front sides support faces 2 are arranged to be pivotable on frame 3, their rear sides supporting themselves on bolts 8 of lifting element 9. By turning knurled-head screw 10, lifting element 9, guided on two columns 12, is adjusted via eccentric drive 11. This causes support faces 2 to be set to different angular positions, to change the position of the workpiece edges to be processed.

The complete arrangement is guided on rail 13 and is moved against lapping belt 14 for lapping the workpiece edges. Lapping belt 14 and cover plate 7 are inclined through the same constant angle.
