Anti-Chatter Technology

Stop chatter before it starts with Anti-Chatter Technology

 

Smooth finish with Anti-Chatter Technology

Anti-Chatter Technology changes the spindle speed to keep chatter-inducing vibration from starting. Eliminate the buildup of vibration (chatter) that can occur when machining rotors at a fixed speed.

 

Eliminate the need for silencer bands

No need for hazardous bands, clips or silencer belts needed to control vibration.

Eliminate virtually all buildup of vibration to stop chatter before it starts!

Other Lathes

Fixed-speed

brake-speed-fixed.png

Chatter can start when machining rotors at a fixed speed. The same way a moistened finger can make a crystal glass sing. By the time the technician hears the rotor singing, it is already too late; the surface has been ruined.

ACT Anti-Chatter Technology

Oscillating speed

brake-speed-oscillating.png

ACT varies the spinning speed to keep chatter inducing vibration from starting. This results in a smoother surface finish.

No need for silencer bands

Anti-Chatter Technology means there is no need for hazardous bands, clips or silencer belts to control vibration

Better brake service starts with

Increased speed and accuracy

Hunter's AutoComp Elite® on-car brake lathe compensates in under 12 seconds, on average, using direct compensation. Other methods may take up two minutes using wandering compensation.

Automatic Compensation enhances speed and accuracy by calculating the exact position of the compensation plates to eliminate guess work. Direct compensation exceeds the most stringent OE requirements and can make as many as 5 adjustments in a single revolution.

Superior performance features

Easily service difficult vehicles

Service rotors in half the time

The Variable-Speed Drive System allows technicians to resurface rotors at the fastest possible speed without sacrificing quality. Variable speed also means the ACE lathe can avoid locking differentials on trucks and performance vehicles.

Don't remove drive train components

Cut rotors on vehicles that have high driveline drag with reverse rotation and an industry leading 1.5-hp motor, making trucks and performance vehicles easy tasks. Helping you avoid adding time to the job and the risk of removing drive train components!

Watch how to avoid locking differentials

Digi-Cal measurement

Instantly measure drum or rotor dimensions and depth of cut

Digi-Cal arm

Measuring system is located in housing on the end of the cutter shaft.

 

Bright LED light puts light where you need it - on the backside of the rotor.

Does not loose calibration when turned off or stored.

 

 

Easy viewing with Digi-Cal screen


Dimensions turn red when attempting to cut rotor below manufacturers specification.

 

 

Save space

16 adaptors can be replaced by 5 adaptors

 

  • 3,4, and 5 adaptors heandle up to 3500 series trucks. 
  • Handles 112mm through 210 bolt patterns.
