Brake lathe services larger truck rotors
Sep 1, 2006 12:00 PM
Hunter's new OCL430MD hub-mounted rotor lathe offers all of the speed and productivity features of the OCL400 brake lathe, but includes more robust lathe components to service larger truck rotors.
With a reinforced cutting arm and rugged tool holders, the new lathe resurfaces rotors up to 17.5" in diameter and up to 3.5" thick. A 1.5-horsepower, 230-volt AC motor provides more torque for medium-duty truck service.
The OCL430MD ServoDrive system enables the technician to vary the spindle speed and rotational torque of the lathe while in operation.
An ACT (Anti-Chatter Technology) feature minimizes machining problems by virtually eliminating chatter. The ACT feature oscillates the speed of the lathe while machining the rotor to prevent the buildup of vibration that can occur on any fixed-speed lathe.
Pro-Comp computerized compensation adjusts for lateral runout with a push of a button and a simple single-point adjustment.
The OCL430MD trolley provides an extended low-to-high working range required for serving vehicles when a lift rack is not available or practical.
