Universal Car Care Automotive offers a disk and drum brake machining service, which can be employed in place of outright replacement.
In this way, your brakes will start to function perfectly while you will also save money.
When driving on the road, brakes typically have to be applied quite often, which results in wear and tear of the brake disc and drums.
You will know that your brake disc or drums need machining if there is cracking caused by heat or uneven surface because of pad wear and tear.
If these problems arise, first step is to do machining of the contact surface of the brake pad, so that it becomes smooth and starts functioning properly.
All brakes disk and drums have specifications by their manufacturers, either stamped on them or available on an online source like their website.
When you take your vehicles disc's or drum brakes for machining, it's first checked for the thickness of the disk and drum which is measured and compared with the manufacturers’ specifications.
If it is expected that thickness would fall below the recommendations as a result of machining, you will be advised to get the disc and drums replaced instead of getting them machined.
A special machine or tool is used for machining brakes, which gives the rotors a new, smooth surface. This will allow for perfect friction, which is required for braking. Your brake pads will also work better after machining.
There are a lot of factors like scarring, foreign bodies or cracking that can harm and damage the disc and drums brakes. This may result in vibrations, shudders, noises and reduced braking efficiency.
If you want to get your disc and drum brakes in perfect condition, you should get them machined if possible. As long as the thickness is sufficient, this will prove more economical than replacing them.
A brake lathe is used for machining, which works by removing a very thin part from the surface of the disk. As a result, a new disk surface is achieved which is smooth, even and works perfectly. In this way, your brakes will last longer and you will also save money.
When you visit Universal Car Care Automotive, your vehicle’s brakes will be examined in great detail and if required they may be machined to perfect working order.
