Stähli USA offers a diverse range of lapping and polishing application materials, all of which can be customized to your needs. The component being machined can be essentially any solid material that is being held inside a conditioning ring using a pressure plate or weight. In brief, the material of a workpiece is eliminated by the motion of the rotating lapping plate and/or polishing surface against the component needed to achieve the desired surface finish. Our pressure plate, polishing, and grinding pads increase production times while giving you the precision finish to the application. In summary, the impressive finishes our products achieve makes each polishing and grinding application effortless.

Pressure Plate Pads

Pressure plate pads are essential during a lapping and polishing process that helps achieve the desired surface within a workpiece. In general, the purpose of having a pressure plate pad is to help apply an even amount of pressure on all workpiece surfaces that are within a load that’s being machined. As long as the same amount of pressure is spread between the workpieces, there won’t be a variation in size upon completion. Moreover, below are some types of pressure plate pads we offer to help you maximize your next lapping/polishing project that can be custom to your needs.


Neoprene, Felt, Cellasto, Custom


Quarter Inch, Half Inch, and Custom Sizes

Most materials and sizes available in stock!

Polishing Pads

Comparatively, if tight surface finish tolerances are what your application needs, our polishing pads are what you are missing within your process. In fact, supplying the highest quality polishing pads in the market allows us to provide you with consistent results and resilience in each project. In any event, having our expertise in finishing products for over 50 years has given us the advantage of perfecting all polishing applications. Overall, the precision finish you need is the precision finish you will receive!
