La Vergne, Tenn. (Vocus) May 6, 2008
The AMMCO 4000E, the easiest to use and most ergonomic lathe ever made, is now available to make all of your rotor refinishing projects easier, faster, and more precise.
The 4000E provides total control for optimized speed and feed combinations. Operators have the ability to make necessary adjustments with ease, which allows even a new operator to turn rotors to perfection. Today, rotor refinishing is more complicated than ever, but the 4000E provides ease-of-use and superior results to lessen those complications.
The 4000E is easy to adapt to any rotor or drum material that exists now or in the future. Providing digitally controlled feed rates allows an operator the ability to get the highest quality finish possible. The 4000E also has integrated positive rake tool bits to allow for precision tuning and reduced chatter to allow for better-quality machine surfaces than that of another brake lathe.
As the first lathe to feature an integrated synchronous gearbox and shifter, the 4000E allows users to shift on the fly. Users can choose the correct speed for each work piece with ease right at their fingertips. This eliminates the awkwardness of reaching behind the machine to make adjustments, and it helps to tame loud noises composite rotors sometimes omit.
The 4000E is equipped to handle light truck and SUV applications. The one-inch, heat-forged arbor on the AMMCO 4000E allows you to machine jobs up to 200 pounds. By adding the optional “F” adaptor kit, the range of heavier and splined rotor assemblies increases, so users have the ability to service a higher volume of heavy work, and potentially any other application that may come in.
All Ammco brake lathes are exact tools that cut to one-thousandth of an inch tolerance. Many of today’s vehicles are extremely sensitive, so the precision of an Ammco brake lathe ensures customers smooth braking and complete satisfaction.
True to AMMCO style, the 4000E is the most reliable and durable brake lathe on the market.
