ASKFOC_web2-QUESTION

Do you have a lapping film that can remove a larger than normal epoxy bead more effectively than 15um Silicon Carbide? We have a unusual connector that does not have a crimp to secure it to the cable and relies on the epoxy for this. Therefore, we use more epoxy for the termination and excess flowing out to the tip during curing.  Using a harder pad is one of the solutions we tried but the connector radius becomes lager and we require a 100% geometry pass.  Any suggestion will help.

 

ANSWER:  Correct using a harder rubber pad (or changing the pressure) will change the ROC.  We recommend a more aggressive lapping film, more polishing time or likely a combination of both.  A 30 um Silicon Carbide lapping film will likely do the trick.
