This experiment looked to identify the impact on grit morphology, granulometry, and angularity as they pertain to changing independent variables of the WPI automated lapping machine, ALM. The experiment used a DOE, design of experiments, approach that called for twelve experimental runs, each of which correlate to unique ALM settings. Methods for quantifying these parameters were developed as a secondary objective. The end result showed that particle granulometry, morphology, and angularity are each uniquely affected by interactions between ALM settings.
