Brake Lathe

  • RJ West 1115HD
  • Heavy Duty Rotor, Drum & Flywheel Lathe
  • Heavy, thick ductile iron casting provides a rugged, reliable base for the 1115HD True Cut.
  • The 1115HD provides a “One Cut” finish. If specifications or operators prefer a rough cut before finishing, it’s available simply by rotating a dial.
  • Quick changeover from disc to drum tools in only seconds.
  • The innovative design and tooling allows the 1115HD to be adapted easily to all existing and future machine applications. 
  • Drive shaft and arbor are supported by extra large tapered roller bearings. Bearings and complete drive train operate in an oil bath - no bushings or old fashioned sleeves to wear out.
  • Simple arbor drive - only two gears.
  • Individual high torque gear motors used for driving drum and rotor tool carriages. An electronic module measures and controls the carriage feed speed. By varying the torque to the feed motor, a constant feed speed is held. This provides an even finish even through hard spots and large variations in the surface.
  • Automatic shutoff of the tool carriages.
  • Adjustable work light and top storage space for tools.
