Kitagawa NorthTech (Schaumburg, Illinois) has moved its website from kitagawa.com to kitagawa.us. Its parent company, Kitagawa Iron Works (Japan), will assume the use of the “.com” domain for a global website later this year. The decision is intended to align and clarify product offerings from Kitagawa companies and entities in their appropriate regions. The company believes this will help it to better serve customers’ local product and service requirements.

On the occasion of the move to the new domain, the company has also redesigned its website to provide North American customers with information on its products and services. According to Kevin Bennett, VP of sales and marketing, “The new kitagawa.us website is not only a refresh of our brand and product content, but it more accurately presents the breadth of our workholding offerings, services and capabilities for our customers in North America.”

  • A Study Of The Steady Rest

    When the length and stiffness of a workpiece make it difficult to machine without distorting or deflecting the part, many manufacturers turn to the steady rest as a workpiece support device. This is especially true for long axles, shafts and similar parts used in automotive or heavy equipment applications, and in oil drilling components. The most common application is to support a workpiece during turning or milling and, increasingly, during secondary operations such as ID drilling, boring and producing end face bolthole patterns.
