Brake-Lathe-Rotor.jpgOperational shop equipment is a necessity for any shop large or small, so a Ranger combination brake lathe is perfect for repairing vehicle drive ability, safety, fixing brake pedal pulsation, and removing that annoying brake noise.

Most complaints customers have regarding their brakes is when the push on the pedal. Uneven surface flaws are responsible for most of these issues. When brake surface variations are found, the rotor's imperfections need to be machined down so that high spots are machined smooth across the entire surface. Brake lathe resurfacing is usually less costly and easier than replacing the rotor.

Vibration and chatter transfer are the most common problems that other brake lathes have and it directly affects the tool-tip and can leave imperfect cuts on machined surfaces. The RL-8500 Brake Lathe by Ranger eliminates the need for gear-driven mechanical drives and variable-speed transmission devices by design.

Ranger brake lathes replaced transmission / gears found on other brands. Brake rotors are very smooth. If you were turning a rotor on any lathe and drop a hammer on the floor next to the lathe you are turning, you would see a noticeable degradation of the cut right at the moment you dropped the hammer (of impact). Vibration causes frequencies, these frequencies get transferred to the finished cut. You won' t have this problem with the Ranger RL-8500 brake lathe because it does not use gears and transmissions. Ranger has completely eliminated multiple frequencies, eliminating any degradation on the machining finish. Surface roughness is usually the result of improper material properties, spindle rotational speed, tool feed rate, tool geometry, and relative tool-work vibration. Vibrations and noise from gears is eliminated also.

The Ranger RL-8500 brake lathe offers more features, better performance, extra utility, best flexibility and additional productivity than you can imagine. It's the soundest investments for your business.
