CALIBRATION - Performed per Fed Spec GGG-463c
FLATNESS CALIBRATION - On larger surface plates Platco uses Leitz Wetzler Collimators. Leitz is the leading instrument in optical gaging. Smaller plates are calibrated using Rahn Planekators with Rahn Premium Red Straightedges.
Platco's experience technicians resurface your granite surface plates to an accuracy and finish once thought to be achieved only at the factory.
1. EXPERIENCED BASED BUSINESS - All Three field technicians work exclusively on surface plates. This insures they have the 'touch' necessary for precision lapping.
2. LAPPING TO A HIGHER STANDARD - Platco laps to a tolerance that is up to 4 times more accurate then our competitors. The federal specification allows two separate repeat reading tables. Platco resurfaces to the higher standard that requires a repeat reading of .0001" for grade B, .00005" for grade A, and .000025" for grade AA.
3. MULTIPLE SIZE LAPS - Using a variety of lap sizes eliminates any possibility of waviness.
LONGEVITY - A wet lap finish is essential to the wear life of your plate. Our 600 grit wet lap gives you a 25-30 micro finish. This provides a superior finish, highly resistant to wear.
