Pro-Cut, a manufacturer of on-car brake lathes, has launched a new version of its drivers’ website which helps locate workshops that carry out brake repairs.
The site, called Skim my Discs, explains the facts about brake problems and solutions.
Using a Pro-Cut machine to skim brake discs can stop brake pedal pulsation, juddering, squeaks and squeals and improve braking performance.
The Pro-Cut process restores the original factory brake geometry by ‘matching’ the disc to the hub.
The Pro-Cut brake lathe works on all types of metal discs: solid, vented, drilled, grooved, front and rear, on all vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes.
John Pullin, general manager, said: “With over 17 years’ experience in machining discs, we frequently receive enquiries from drivers looking to solve brake problems and reduce their service costs.
“We are confident that use of a Pro-Cut machine to restore the original disc geometry will solve these problems.
“Skim my Discs helps drivers find the nearest garage with Pro-Cut equipment and the expertise to solve brake issues.”
All discs can be skimmed at least once before they reach minimum thickness and need replacing.
Manufacturers that have approved the Pro-Cut process of brake disc skimming include Porsche, BMW, Nissan, Peugeot, Subaru, Chrysler, Mitsubishi, Mazda, Ferrari, Kia, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar/Land Rover and Ford.
