Hunter Engineering’s AutoComp Elite brake lathe has been approved by several OEs including Acura, BMW/Mini, Fiat Chrysler Automobile, Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Infiniti, Kia, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Subaru, Toyota and Volkswagen.

The AutoComp Elite features patent pending automatic compensation technology and the system can directly determine the position of the internal plates to maximize speed and accuracy without operator intervention, Hunter said. The new 7-inch touchscreen provides a user-friendly interface that allows technicians to quickly look up required adaptors, operate the lathe including changing cutting direction and speed, and view instructional videos.

AutoComp Elite also includes patented Anti-Chatter Technology, which eliminates the buildup of vibration (chatter) that can occur when machining rotors at a fixed speed.
