AB LAPPING (Alan Browne Lapping Services Ltd) is a Precision Flat Lapping Company and was registered as a new company in April 2019 following on from the closure of Alan Browne Gauges Ltd that had been trading since 1962. The unfortunate closure was due to the decline in calibration and manufacturing requirements and the increasing costs in providing those said services, which were no longer financially viable in this ever changing world.
A decision was made to form the new company, AB Lapping so we could continue to provide the same exemplary Precision Flat Lapping Service that we had been previously providing since 1999. We just no longer provide onsite gauge block manufacturing or onsite UKAS calibration services. However we can source gauge blocks and UKAS certificates off site. Please contact us for more information with regards to offsite services.
With over 50 years of experience, manufacturing and calibrating gauge blocks, we are in a unique position of being able to work in sub-micron tolerances, where a tolerance of 0.0001mm and less than a light band would not discourage us.
AB Lapping are excited to announce our recent expansion in September 2021, this means alongside providing our specialist Precision Flat Lapping Service, we now sell some new products which are Bespoke Gauges and Hardness Test Blocks, this is a new venture that has been underway throughout the pandemic, we are thrilled to now promote these products on our website.
