What are the most important considerations for lapping film as we are establishing our process?



A lapping film must have the highest lot to lot consistency.  When you establish your process there are many factors to control and film might rank at the top.  Others include, but aren’t limited to the quality of your polishing machine, its fixturing and rubber pads, and the connectors you are using.  If your supplier switches ferrules or changes springs, your polished results may change.
