Abstract

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.
