The AMMCO 4000B-SP brake lathe from Hennessy Industries is designed for speed, enabling busy shops to turn standard work quicker and easier. Using single-speed spindle and feed rates, it efficiently cuts rotors in one pass, with a high-quality finish.

The 4000B-SP brake lathe is a simplified precision tool that converts from drums to rotors in less than 30 seconds. The twin cutter tool simultaneously resurfaces both sides of a rotor and cuts to one-thousandth of an inch to meet the demands of today’s more sensitive vehicles. In addition, one-pass machining with positive rake tool bits create precision machined surfaces every time.

“Brake service professionals know that time lost is money lost,” said Kevin Keefe, Hennessy’s group marketing manager. “With this new brake lathe, AMMCO is helping shop owners maximize efficiency. This is one of the most accurate, durable and easy-to-use machines you can put in your shop. Even new operators can quickly turn rotors like seasoned professionals.”

The 4000B-SP features a 44-pound spindle, extra large bronze bearings with a constant oil feed and larger drive gear that provide durability and help reduce wear. Keefe added that many AMMCO 4000s are still in service after 40 years of continuous use.
