The PFM X9 brake lathe combines Pro-Cut’s best-existing technologies, like the patented PFM one-button computerised compensation system and a 4-wheel, 4-axis, fully adjustable trolley. It combines them with a rigid new X-frame lathe chassis, powerful belt-driven high-torque drivetrain, and super bright 6 LED light to give you a clear path to higher profits! The X9 is digitally expandable to an optional G2X system. All X9’s come with Pro-Cut’s famous DRO display, including live run-out, productivity tracking, and lathe diagnostics.
The PFM X9 uses the same adapters and cutting head as the older 9.2 model but has been designed with a more robust drivetrain, body design, and LED lighting.
The Pro-Cut adapters will connect you to almost any vehicle on the road today, giving you the power to turn even stiff all-wheel drive and truck axles. Plus, Pro-Cut’s simple set-up is the same, from compact cars to dual-wheel vans.
Tyres need to be balanced, wheels need to be aligned, and discs need to be matched. Adding disc matching to your service offerings adds a new revenue source.
2-post, 4-post, scissor, or even no lift….it doesn’t matter! Pro-Cut’s fully adjustable trolley allows you to roll up and mount your Pro-Cut lathe confidently. Once set up, you can resurface a brake disc in under 10 minutes and a whole car in less than an hour.
