Hunter’s AutoComp Elite Brake Lathe Earns Approval From BMW/Mini

The new 7" touchscreen provides a user-friendly interface that allows technicians to quickly look up required adaptors, operate the lathe including changing cutting direction and speed, and view instructional videos.

BMW/Mini has announced Hunter’s AutoComp Elite brake lathe has been approved for use in BMW/Mini dealerships in the United States.

The AutoComp Elite brake lathe features patent pending automatic compensation technology. The system directly determines the position of the internal plates to maximize speed and accuracy without operator intervention. The result is the fastest, highest quality brake job possible, said the company. The new 7″ touchscreen provides a user-friendly interface that allows technicians to quickly look up required adaptors, operate the lathe including changing cutting direction and speed, and view instructional videos. AutoComp Elite also includes patented Anti-Chatter Technology (ACT) which eliminates the buildup of vibration (chatter) that can occur when machining rotors at a fixed speed.

Hunter Product Manager, Greg Meyer noted, “The speed and ease of resurfacing rotors with the new AutoComp Elite will allow BMW/Mini dealers to provide the highest quality brake service to their customers.”
