8920 L High Speed Brake Lathe
A basic brake lathe for any brake shop resurfacing brake rotors or drums.
- One pass finish design insures a premium product with minimal
- Increased arbor speed provides for machining times as low as 4
- Positive rake tooling yields "one pass" finish cut every time.
No need for multiple passes.
- True machine shop design utilizing dovetail ways & adjustable
gibb construction insures that you can maintain peak performance for
the life of the lathe.
- Independent feed motors provide maximum versatility and ease of
The Accu-turn model 8920L brake lathe is our fastest bench lathe,
offering the best compromise of reduced speed and superior surface
finish. With a 180 rpm arbor speed the 8920L machines most 2 face
rotors in LESS then 4 minutes while still achieving the flatness,
parallelism and surface finish you expect from the Industry's leading
lathe manufacturer. Of course the 8920L also incorporates Accu-turn’s
legendary one cut finish performance with the simplicity and durability
required for all levels of technicians.
Designed to handle virtually all passenger and light truck rotors and
drums. Brake lathe accessory packages are available for expanded medium duty truck
Accu−Turn 8920L High Speed Brake Lathe Benefit Overview
Increased arbor speed −
Turnaround time on rotors and drums is reduced to the lowest possible
time without sacrificing surface finish or cutting tip life. Sure we
could have gone faster, but we won’t ever sacrifice the finish and
quality machining capability you expect from Accu-turn by creating
dazzling speed claims. We provide you with the best of both worlds.
Reduced time and quality finish.
Positive rake cutter tip angle −
Provides for one pass finish virtually every time, allowing you to
complete the work faster than multiple pass machining processes. Metal
and heat come off the top of the tip as you machine allowing for one
pass machining with virtually any depth of cut. Get it in, get it out
faster then any lathe in the industry.
Dovetail Way and Adjustable Gibb Design −
The most dependable repeat guidance system in the machining industry. System
provides for the ability to adjust out any tolerance increase caused by years of
wear. Maintain factory tolerances for the life of the lathe. Dovetail ways are
covered by stainless steel way covers for maximum performance.
Tapered Roller Bearing Spindle − The lathe
spindle is supported by Timken tapered roller bearings for years of maintenance
free turning, the same system that automotive spindles have relied on for years.
Massive lathe housing casting − Combining
a total mass of 470 lbs and a solid table top platform design the 8920L
eliminates transient vibrations ensuring a smooth uninterrupted surface finish
on every pass. Cutting platform actually sits in a 200 lb iron casting, not
suspended on a support mechanism.
Independent AC feed motors − Utilizing
independent feed motors for rotor and drum improves the lathes versatility to
machine all varieties of drums and rotors. Through a separated switch wiring we
substantially reduce the possibility of catastrophic operator error. Providing
smooth, consistent feed, day in and day out for years.
