A stochastic analysis was derived for the lapping process of magnetic recording heads. Numerical results of the final surface roughness, material removal rate, and wear coefficient are presented in terms of material properties, applied pressure, topographies of original ceramic surface and lapping plate surface, kinematics, diamond particles density and sizes of lapping plate. The estimated final roughness is in good agreement with experimental results.
