Optional 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 need for silencer bands

No 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

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