Hunter Debuts New QuickComp On-Car Lathe for Fast, Precise Rotor Refinishing

Hunter’s new QuickComp lathe improves on previous designs with a faster and easier setup to enhance overall service. The QuickComp lathe features a two-way adjustable compensation adaptor that works with Hunter’s patented Pro-Comp computerized compensation to adjust for lateral runout of the hub in seconds. This capability allows for shops to refinish rotors within OEM specifications in a matter of minutes, said the company.

Hunter’s new QuickComp lathe improves on
previous designs with a faster and easier setup to enhance overall service. The
QuickComp lathe features a two-way adjustable compensation adaptor that works
with Hunter’s patented Pro-Comp
computerized compensation to adjust for lateral runout of the hub in seconds. This
capability allows for shops to refinish rotors within OEM specifications in a
matter of minutes, said the company.


According to the company, QuickComp still
includes patented Hunter features that further elevate lathe performance:

• ACT (Anti-Chatter Technology) minimizes
finish irregularities by virtually eliminating chatter, said the company.  ACT oscillates the speed of the lathe to
prevent the buildup of vibration that can occur on any fixed-speed lathe,
ensuring a smooth surface finish.

• ServoDrive enables the technician to vary
the spindle speed and rotational torque of the lathe while in operation.  This unique ability allows “on-the-fly” speed
adjustments without compromising the final surface finish.

• Reverse rotation proves beneficial when servicing some vehicles with
limited-slip differentials, which produce excessive drag on the driveshaft,
preventing normal lathe operation.

Hunter Engineering is a global leader in
alignment systems, wheel and tire service, brake service and inspection lane
equipment. According to the company, Hunter equipment is approved
and used by vehicle manufacturers, automobile and truck dealers, tire dealers
and service facilities around the world.
