Hunter Debuts AutoComp Elite Brake Lathe
Hunter Engineering Co.’s AutoComp Elite brake lathe features automatic compensation technology that directly determines the position of the internal plates to maximize speed and accuracy without operator intervention. The result is a fast, high quality brake job.
The new 7-inch touch screen 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. The interface also includes the BitMinder feature which monitors bit life and recommends replacement to improve cut quality and reduce waste.
AutoComp Elite also includes patented Anti-Chatter Technology (ACT) which eliminates the buildup of vibration (chatter) that can occur when machining rotors at a fixed speed. This provides a smooth rotor finish without the use of chatter bands or other cumbersome devices.
