Brake Disc Cutting
We are an official service agent for Pro-Cut throughout Halesowen, Stourbridge, Cradley Heath and the West Midlands. Today’s on-car brake lathe technology, enables discs to be skimmed quickly, efficiently and with amazing accuracy.
Brake disc skimming will:
Stop brake pedal pulsation, juddering, squeaks and squeals.
Improve braking performance on your vehicle - increasing safety whilst driving.
Save money on your vehicle service.
The Pro-Cut process works on all types of metal discs: solid, vented, drilled, grooved, front and rear, on all vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes.
Brake pedal pulsation results from uneven wear of brake discs. This is caused by very slight mis-alignment of the discs and/or the vehicle hubs, known technically as "run-out". The Pro-Cut lathe overcomes this problem by machining the disc directly on the vehicle.
Why resurface brake discs?
If a set of discs was too thin in the first place they should be replaced. We’d never argue with that. But…. the machining process removes only the tiniest slice. Pro-Cut’s on-car brake lathe shaves off typically just 0.3 to 0.5mm of total disc thickness. So if there was at least this amount of material left on the disc, skimming it is not a problem.
