Beefy and rigid with the ability to handle hard materials and heavy duty cuts, consider a Kitamura Horizontal an investment in performance and precision. From solid Meehanite cast construction to patented twin ballscew and dual feedback technology offering 1,969ipm rapid rates on solid boxways, to the sheer power of our geared head spindles, Kitamura Horizontals offer you long machine tool life along with the continuous accuracy and reliability necessary for you to get the job done.
From small to large Kitamura offers a wide variety of Vertical Machining Center configurations to handle your most demanding cutting conditions. An emphasis on rigidity in construction and ultra-high precision let customers supply high value-added services to their clients, entering new markets, expanding business and producing extreme tolerance work. High speed spindles and optional factory installed pallet changers increase spindle utilization and help to create a multi-tasking machining environment that optimizes up-time.
Larger parts require larger capacity and increased rigidity in order to support heavier table loads. Kitamura’s Bridgecenter Vertical Machining Centers are designed for extreme cutting capacity, offering the benefits of solid box way construction, high speed/high torque spindle options, spacious work envelopes, and a patented double column bridge type design. Standard linear scale feedback and #40 and #50 taper spindle configurations make these machines ideal for the mold industry where high levels of accuracy are needed in roughing & finishing large cavities and cores. High speed, dual contact spindles give you the versatility to expand machining capabilities with a machine of this size.
Vertical or Horizontal, Kitamura has the 5-Axis machining solution to give you the competitive edge needed to machine all of your complex, multi-sided parts in one set-up. Kitamura’s Trunnion table design offers the user increased accuracy and rigidity, simple set-up and ease of programming for the operator. For added capabilities and the flexibility to diversify as your needs change, let us show you how our full line of vertical and horizontal machining centers can be retrofitted in the field to support the benefits of full simultaneous 5-axis machining.
If you require ultra-high precision for high tolerance parts, Kitamura’s Jigcenter-5 Vertical Jig Boring machine offers exceptional accuracies of ±0.000039” Full Stroke, repeatability ±0.00002”. Maximum workpiece size of 32.1” x 27.8” x 23.6” allows for the machining of a greater variety of complex shapes and larger workpiece sizes. Double column bridge-type construction combined with large diameter twin ballscrews, linear scale feedback and high speed 20,000rpm spindle combine to offer the highest levels of accuracy and rigidity for more sophisticated, high-profit work.
