    Satisloh Optical Grinding

    Hello all. I have some questions about Satisloh machines and grinding ceramics. I am a student who is working part time so I'd like to learn from you experienced guys. My questions are below. I appreciate answers for any of these questions. Thank you.

    1. I want to grind a flat ceramic part to 0.6 mm. Diameter is about 65 mm. How can I produce very flat surfaces? I need to grind both two surfaces. I cant use wax/cementing. Vacuum seems suitable but I am not sure if it is precise enough. How should hold the workpiece?

    2. How accurate/precise are the Satisloh/Loh machines (Spm-200 especially)? Can I produce super flat and thin parts with it? 0.005 deviation in 50 mm for example.

    3. How reliable/accurate is measuring probe of the machine? It measures different values at the same spot. Sometimes the differences are up to 0.003-0.004 mm.

    Thank you.

    I haven't heard of this company before, but if you don't get an answer here, you could always reach out to the company that makes the machines.

    My questions are about workholding generally. Can I hold the part with a vacuum chuck and achieve flat surfaces on both sides? How can I prevent edge lifting?

    I would drag out the old hand pan and a flat lap. A plano blocking body and some pitch will do the job.

    I am using a machine not doing by hand. How should I hold the part? Does 2 sided tapes work okay? Or should I use vacuum with elastic tape?
