One-Inch Spindle Assembly
Ammco’s patented floating spindle, with oversize bronze bearings, provides a precision rigid mount and smooth support for heavy work up to 200 lbs.

The 4000E is the ultimate in finish control right at your fingertips from the leader in brake service.

Total Control
Rotor refinishing is more complex today than ever before. So it’s critical that speed and feed combinations be optimized to provide the best. Now you have control over the entire process and can make adjustments that, before now, were only dreamed about. Plus, the 4000E is the easiest to use and most ergonomic lathe on the market. Even new operators can quickly turn rotors perfectly like seasoned professionals.

Custom Digital Finishes
That’s right, welcome to the age of digital refinishing.The Ammco 4000E is easily adaptable to any rotor or drum material available today… or tomorrow. By digitally controlling the feed rates, it’s easier to find that sweet spot for your particular application that gives you the highest possible quality finish available. Integrated positive rake tool bits allow for precision turning, with reduced chatter to produce superior machined surfaces every time.

Shift OnThe Fly
The 4000E is the first lathe with an integrated synchronous gearbox and shifter. Now you can choose the speed that makes the most sense for your workpiece, right at your fingertips. No more awkward reaching behind the machine for adjustments. And its perfect for taming those unexpectedly shrill composite rotors.

Increased Capacity for Larger Jobs
The 4000E is engineered to handle light truck and SUV applications. In fact, the one-inch, heat forged arbor allows you to machine those larger, eavier jobs up to 200 lbs! And with the optional “F” adapter kit, the range of heavier and splined rotor assemblies you can machine is very wide. So now you can service an increased volume of heavier work, and virtually any other application that rolls in. All Ammco brake lathes are precision tools that cut to one-thousandth of an inch tolerances. With today’s more sensitive vehicles, this helps ensure customers get smooth braking and complete satisfaction.

Rotor/Drum Feed Gear Box
Precision hand fitted internal gears provide decades of trouble free use.

Shift OnThe Fly 3 Speed
The 4000E is the first lathe with an integrated synchronous gearbox and shifter. Now you can choose the speed that makes the most sense for your workpiece, right at your fingertips.
Forged Alloy Steel Arbor
Two tapered mounting surfaces add stability and handle up to 200lbs.
Feed Slide Protection
Keeps travel surfaces free of dirt and chips.
Positive RakeTool Bits
Positive rake tool bits allow for low pressure precision turning that produces superior machined surfaces every time with less chatter. Negative rake tool bits are also included.
Patented Floating Spindle Design
Extra large bronze bearings reduce pressure and wear. Larger drive gear adds life.
Patented Positive Oiling System
Constant lubrication when switched on. No metal-to-metal contact between bearing and spindle. Reduces wear for longer life.
Rigid 44-Pound Spindle
Has the strength for long-term precision and durability, even with larger loads up to 200 lbs.
Twin CutterTool
Simultaneously resurfaces both sides of rotor.
Micrometer Precise
Depth of cut dials embossed in metal and calibrated in both thousandths of an inch and tenths of a millimeter. Easy reset to zero.
Full Drum Support
Hex boring bar guarantees correct tool angle for drums.

Today, it’s critical that speed and feed combinations be optimized to provide the best possible finish with every application. Now you have complete control over the entire process.
