Title (EN) MODULAR CONTROLLED PLATEN PREPARATION SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE DE PREPARATION DE PLAQUES A COMMANDE MODULAIRE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A system, and method are disclosed for preparing platens (114) to perform lapping operations. The system includes a platter (120) that is rotatably mounted on a base (110), and designed to receive the platen thereon. A main drive motor (118) is provided for rotating the platter (120), and the platen (114) disposed thereon. A plurality of pressure arms (128) are disposed on the base (110), and configured to include a tool receiving portion that can be positioned in alignment with a lapping surface (116) of the platen (114). A tool (132) is attached to each tool receiving portion so that predetermined operations can be be performed on the lapping surface of the platen. A monitor (138) is provided to monitor predetermined parameters, and maintain substantially constant conditions while preparing the platen.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un système et un procédé de préparation de plaques (114) permettant de mener des opérations de rodage. Le système comporte un plateau (120) est monté rotatif sur une base, et conçu pour recevoir sur sa surface la plaque. Un moteur d'entraînement principal (118) assure la rotation du plateau (120) et des plaques qui y sont déposées. Plusieurs bras applicateurs (128) disposés sur la base (110) sont configurés de façon à comporter un élément porte-outil pouvant se placer dans l'alignement d'une surface de rodage (116) de la plaque (114). Un outil (132) est monté sur chacun des éléments porte-outil de façon à pouvoir mener des opérations sur la surface de rodage de la plaque. Un écran de contrôle (138) permet de surveiller des paramètres définis, et de conserver des conditions sensiblement constantes pendant la préparation de la plaque.
