Brake Discs Skimming
Why Skim Your Brake Discs?
Here at EDM we have invested in a Pro-Cut Brake skimming machine we are one of very few garages around the country never mind Derby who have invested in this type of equipment to save our customers money.
The Pro-process will return your brakes to ex-factory condition. The process matches the disc to the hub. In other words, if there is the slightest run-out in the hub (i.e. it doesn’t rotate in a perfectly true way), the Pro-Cut process will take care of this and correct it by automatically compensating for it. A great video explaining this is available on YouTube.
Brake discs should be resurfaced when:
- There is brake vibration or judder
- Discs are corroded or rusty
- Brake pads are changed but new discs are not necessary
- Brakes feel spongy
How Does Brake Disc Skimming Work?
The lathe works on the vehicle, by attaching itself directly to the hub. The technology includes an automatic, electronically-controlled, gyroscope system which measures run-out in the hub and corrects for this to an accuracy of 0.025mm. That’s less than the thickness of a human hair!
The automatic surface machining of a disc is completed in around 10 minutes. The complete process takes less than 20 minutes per disc.
All brake discs can be skimmed at least once. The only time your brake discs should be replaced is when they reach minimum thickness. Leading manufacturers have approved the Pro-Cut process of brake disc skimming. These include Porsche, BMW, Nissan, Peugeot, Subaru, Chrysler, Mitsubishi, Mazda, Ferrari General Motors, Kia, Jaguar, Land Rover, Ford, Toyota, Honda and the performance brakes manufacturer EBC.
Brake disc skimming – a better quality and lower cost alternative to brake disc replacement.
