Common Problems We Encounter in Brake Lathes

Varispeed Gearbox

A frequent issue with the varispeed gearbox is improper engagement, causing it to loosen or not stay in the correct speed, making brake cutting more difficult. We encounter and resolve this problem daily.

Shear Gear

The shear gear tends to wear out over time, causing significant issues for mechanics. It sometimes needs replacement to avoid damaging the transmission, which can make repairs more time-consuming. Regular lubrication is essential to prevent overheating and ensure proper maintenance.

Motor Pulley

Another common problem is the motor pulley wearing out over time, resulting in loss of cutting power, slippage, or unusual noises.

Input Shaft Bearing

Located within the smaller pulley, this bearing allows smooth rotation without breaking. Proper maintenance is crucial to prevent issues.

Brake Lathe Cross Feed

A lack of maintenance can cause the cross feed to malfunction, becoming blocked or forced. Regular maintenance is essential for optimal performance. We offer maintenance services and recommendations based on your machine’s needs.
