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.
