AutoComp Elite®

The Hunter AutoComp Elite® On-Car Brake Lathe system keeps your brake service a cut above the rest. The AutoComp Elite® Brake Lathe system was the first to introduce Hunter's revolutionary Anti-Chatter Technology to provide a smoother surface finish. The AutoComp Elite® Brake Lathe virtually eliminates the buildup of vibration (chatter) that can occur when machining rotors at a fixed speed.

The AutoComp Elite® On-Car Brake Lathe can service each rotor in less than nine minutes, and also utilizes exclusive precision machining and Hunter’s patented Variable-Speed Drive System to service rotors at the fastest possible speed without sacrificing quality.

What our customers are saying

Brakes Plus - Denver, CO

Once I put this lathe into service in a store, the technicians are more likely to use the AutoComp Elite® vs. ‘Brand X’ as they have so much more confidence in what the finished product will be.

Tim Smith - Equipment Manager/Store Inspector, Brakes Plus

BMW of Freehold - Freehold, NJ

I can’t stress enough the time-savings that we are seeing with this machine. It takes about half as much time to learn and with a team of 25 technicians, I need an on-car brake lathe that is easy to learn and operate.

Craig Forman - Shop Foreman, BMW of Freehold

Weeks Chevrolet Buick GMC - West Frankfort, IL

After seeing the AutoComp Elite® in action, it is impossible to ignore the benefits and time savings of this on-car brake lathe… it allows us to handle any car that comes in, even large medium-duty trucks and difficult vehicles. The powerful motor helps us avoid the need to drop driveshafts which saves us a lot of service time… In just a short time, it has become our go-to machine for every brake job.

Justin Sailliez - Service Manager, Weeks Chevrolet Buick GMC

Learn more about Anti-chatter technology

Anti-Chatter Technology eliminates buildup of vibration — stop chatter before it starts!

Chatter can start when machining rotors at a fixed speed (like when a moistened finger can make a crystal glass sing). By the time the technician hears chatter, it is already too late.

Rough finish from chatter

Anti-Chatter Technology (ACT) varies spindle speed to keep chatter inducing vibration from starting, resulting in a smoother surface finish.
