Bench Lathe Features:

Anti-Chatter Technology

  • Anti-Chatter Technology varies the spindle speed to keep chatter-inducing vibration from starting, resulting in a smooth finish.

  • When machining at a fixed-speed, chatter can start almost immediately. Once that happens, it is already too late; the surface has been ruined.

  • ACT eliminates the need for hazardous bands, clips or silencer belts needed to control vibration.

Adjustable Feed Rate & Calibration

  • Dial in adjustable feed rate for faster, rapid removal to a slower, final surface finish. Allows technicians to cut rotors in one pass.

  • The calibration procedure for drums and rotors takes seconds, helping to prevent accidental removal of excess material.

Digi-Cal Measurement

  • Instantly measure rotor dimensions and depth of cut.

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

  • Bright LED lights put light where you need it - on the backside of the rotor

  • Does not lose calibration when turned off or stored.
