NEW! Kitamura Mycenter-3XG Vertical Machining Center

Kitamura Machinery Introduces New Mycenter-3XG Vertical Machining Center for Fine Finish, HIgh Accuracy Machining

Value, versatility and the ability to hold ultra tight tolerances sets Kitamura's Mycenter-3XG apart with unrivaled positioning accuracy +/-0.000079" and repeatability +/-0.000039".  All mounted surfaces requiring assembly are hand scraped in order to provide the full surface contact and proper alignment that exceed the fit and finish of mounting surfgaces when machined, guaranteeing long-term reliability, peak performance and high levels of accuracy.

The thick wall and ribbed box-type, meehanite cast construction, coupled with solid box guide ways on the X, Y, Z axes ensures a high level of quality and rigidity.  A table size of 16.1" x 35.4" and load capacity of 1,100Lbs are the perfect companions for small to medium sized parts that require high degrees of accuracy and precision.  A high speed 15,000rpm spindle speed allows for super fine finish capabilities with reduced vibration, making the Mycenter-3XG an ideal machine for die-mold and 3D applications.

Only Kitamura can offer the speed of 1969ipm feed rates on the (X) and (Y) axes, 1417ipm (Z) on solid box ways.  High speed cutting has a feed rate of 1,417ipm on the X, Y & Z axes making you "job ready" for high tolerance work.

Kitamura's Bridgecenter-8F Double Column Vertical Machining Center Combines High Precision With Heavy Duty Cutting Power

Strength and Rigidity to Handle The Most Difficult To Machine Materials

As seen in MMS

Kitamura Celebrates 80 Years
The machining center supplier has been in business since 1933.

VMC Provides Flexibility for Job Shop Environments
Kitamura’s Mycenter-4XD high-capacity vertical machining center is designed for flexible job shop operations.

Compact HMC Offers Accuracy for Small Parts
Kitamura Machinery’s Mycenter-HX250G horizontal machining center (HMC) is designed for medium- and long-run small parts that require high accuracy and productivity.

The Big Step Up
A small shop added two new machines, each of which is more advanced than any of the previous machine tools the company has used. One of the co-owners committed to the work of bringing both of these machines fully into service. Here is the shop’s experience so far.

HMC Designed for Tough Cuts in Large Parts
Kitamura’s Mycenter-HX800iL HMC is designed for heavy-duty, large-part precision machining.

VMC Provides High Accuracy
Kitamura’s Mycenter-3XG VMC offers positioning accuracy measuring ±0.000079" and repeatability of ±0.000039". All mounted surfaces requiring assembly are hand scraped to provide full surface contact and proper alignment for long-term reliability, peak performance and accuracy, the company says.The machining center’s thick walls and ribbed box-type, Meehanite-cast construction, coupled with solid box guide ways on the X, Y and Z axes, are designed to ensure quality and rigidity.

Horizontal Machining Center with Rotary Table
The Mycenter-HX400iSII is an HMC equipped with a 13-kw AC motor, hardened box ways, 40-taper spindle and a standard fourth-axis rotary table for both multi-part tombstone fixturing and complex multi-angle large part machining.

Machining Center Offers Flexibility for Multi-Angle Machining
The Kitamura Mycenter-HX400iF features simultaneous full fourth-axis machining capabilities and a solid boxway construction.

HMC Reduces Setup Time On Low-Volume Jobs
Producing parts right the first time is especially important for a job shop that pays as much as $10,000 for raw material. Although complex geometries and tight delivery schedules initially made this challenging, a four-axis HMC with pallet changer allowed faster setups and unattended production.

HMC Reduces Cycle Time On Large Parts
Despite using Kitamura machining centers with great effect, this shop didn’t have a big enough machine to accommodate its largest jobs without a time-consuming, labor-intensive process. That is, until Kitamura released the MyCenter HX1000i, an HMC large enough for the company’s biggest jobs that maintains the features it likes most about other machines from the same builder.

Machining Center For Lights-Out Production
Incorporating a flexible manufacturing system, the Mycenter-HX400iF HMC from Kitamura Machinery features a 12-station flexible pallet container (FPC) system. According to the company, the center’s rigid construction; precision; intuitive controls; ability to move easily between difficult materials; and its ability for high speed production make it suited for lights-out production. The company’s multi-pallet systems enable manufacturers to incorporate an unmanned machining development process for a multitasking machine environment that optimizes up-time.

Kitamura Expansion Coincides With 75th Anniversary
 Kitamura Machinery, a manufacturer of horizontal, vertical and five-axis machining centers, has announced that it is expanding its manufacturing facility in Takoaka City, Japan, from its current 171,300 square feet to 208,000 square feet. The company says this expansion will support production of larger-size, high
