Why Skim your Ferrari Brake Discs?
The Pro-Cut process will return your brakes to Ferrari ex-factory condition. This process matches the disc to the hub. In other words, if there is the slightest run-out in the hub (i.e. it doesn’t rotate in a perfectly true way), the Pro-Cut process will take care of this and correct it by automatically compensating for it.
Ferrari Brake discs should be resurfaced when:
- There is brake vibration or judder
- Discs are corroded or rusty
- Brake pads are changed but new discs are not necessary
- Brakes feel spongy
How Does Ferrari Brake Disc Skimming Work?
The lathe works on the vehicle, by attaching itself directly to the hub. The technology includes an automatic, electronically-controlled, gyroscope system which measures run-out in the hub and then corrects for this, to an accuracy of 0.025mm. That’s less than the thickness of a human hair!
The automatic surface machining of a disc is completed in around 15 minutes. The complete process takes less than 30 minutes per disc.
All Ferrari brake discs can be skimmed at least once. The only time your brake discs should be replaced is when they reach minimum thickness. Leading manufacturers have approved the Pro-Cut process of brake disc skimming.
Ferrari Brake disc skimming is a lower cost alternative to Ferrari brake disc replacement.
