The highly accurate and dependable RL-18C on-the-car brake lathe with power drive unit provides a consistently superior on-the-car rotor finish by combining accuracy and speed features that work together to help tackle today's complex rotor finishing challenges. The unmatched precision and accuracy of the RL-18C increases productivity by reducing floor-to-floor times and minimizing comebacks. Our exclusive variable speed power-drive turns spindles at a fast or slow speeds for better finish cuts and specially designed adapters assure that rotors are machined to exact manufacturer's specifications. Our patented quick-yoke and coupling device attaches to a single lug bolt and automatically centers itself to the power drive shaft. The RL-18C lathe attaches directly to the brake caliper bracket, insuring fast easy machining with no need for timely run-out compensation procedures.
