Who is Kitagawa?

Kitagawa Corporation was founded in 1918 and has its head office in the Hiroshima prefecture, Japan. Kitagawa Europe was founded in 1982 as a joint venture between Kitagawa Corporation and S. Threipland to promote, stock and provide service for Kitagawa Corporation’s machine tool accessory products throughout Europe, Russia, the Middle East, India and Africa via a distribution network.

The product range is extremely diverse and remarkably comprehensive in each of the product divisions. Within the armoury, Kitagawa manufactures a complete range of power, manual and static chucks, collet chucks and expanding mandrels, 4th and 5th axis NC rotary tables, production systems and controllers, robotic grippers, 5-axis workholding solutions, hydraulic cylinders, vises, steady rests, jaws, T-nuts and much more. For solutions that go beyond ‘off the shelf’, Kitagawa has ARG (Application Research Group). The ARG are a global group of Kitagawa engineers that focus on the most difficult workholding problems. What this means, is when a sale representative is discussing a work holding issue with you, they are backed up by an expert team to give you rapid answers and quotes to provide you with the timeline and knowledge you need to move forward with your production.

If you have a workholding issue, you can either contact Kitagawa or keep an eye on the MTDCNC channels and social media outlets to find out more.
