The History – From inspiration to expertise

In the 1970s, Lars Inge Larsson worked as a field service engineer for valve manufacturer NAF in Linköping, Sweden.

He had two main tools at his disposal – a large valve grinder and a small one. The large one would deliver excellent results, but it was heavy, cumbersome and nearly impossible to use in the field.

The other one was light and simple. Perhaps a bit too simple, as results were inconsistent and not always satisfactory.

Larsson put his mind to work, trying to come up with a concept halfway between the two – light-weight, yet accurate.

The result was the LarsLap system with individually driven grinding heads that today is used all over the world.
