Hunter Brake Lathe Earns Endorsement

Hunter Engineering Co.’s AutoComp Elite brake lathe has been approved for use by several OEMs.

The company says Acura, BMW/Mini, Fiat Chrysler Automobile, Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Infiniti, Kia, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Subaru, Toyota and Volkswagen have endorsed the brake lathe.

The AutoComp Elite brake lathe features patent-pending automatic compensation technology.

The system directly determines the position of the internal plates to maximize speed and accuracy without operator intervention. The result is the fastest, highest quality brake job possible, according to Hunter.

A 7-inch touchscreen provides a user-friendly interface that allows technicians to quickly look up required adaptors, operate the lathe including changing cutting direction and speed, and view instructional videos.

Patented Anti-Chatter Technology (ACT) eliminates the buildup of vibration (chatter) that can occur when machining rotors at a fixed speed.
