Kitagawa Middle East


Kitagawa Europe offers you a scalable, cost-effective, and rapid method to enable fourth axis rotary tables to become part of your manufacturing process.

How many times have you dismissed purchasing a fourth axis rotary table because you thought that your vertical machining centre would need to undergo a costly and time-consuming retrofit?

If you purchase a Kitagawa rotary table with its own ‘Quinte’ controller, you can have the rotary table up and running in a very short period of time, connected with your machines M-code and safety circuits, allowing either standard indexing or more complex functions to meet your requirements. 

However, the greatest advantage of Quinte-controlled rotary tables is that they can be removed from one machine and placed onto another regardless of their control systems. For example if one machine has a Fanuc control and the other a Heidenhain control the Quinte can connect with the each machines M-code and safety circuits. 

This adaptability allows you to allocate your fourth axis rotary table to the most suitable machine for a particular job, streamlining your rotary table purchases to precisely match your production needs. Fully integrated rotary tables become temporarily obsolete when not required for particular manufacturing tasks on any one vertical machining centre, as they cannot be easily transferred to another machine. Quinte-controlled rotary tables offer unmatched flexibility.

The Quinte series comes in three model types: the QTC100 for single axis rotary tables, the QTC200 for double axis rotary tables and finally the QTC300 for larger single axis rotary tables with faceplate diameters of more than 320mm. Additionally, each type of Quinte has various motor size options to best suit Kitagawa’s wide range of rotary tables, allowing for the perfect solution tailored to your machines and workpieces.




The Quinte series has been designed with ease of use and high-speed performance in mind. By adopting high speed EtherCAT technology, the Quinte series reduces indexing time with instant communication from Quinte to the rotary table. Programs can be rapidly written on a computer before being uploaded onto a multimedia card (or SD Card) and transferred directly into the front of the Quinte unit.




Adjustments to your program and parameters can be easily conducted via the Quinte’s clear display. The Quinte’s high resolution screen makes operating much more intuitive by clearly displaying the current position, the program that is running, motor information and more.




The manual operation pendant (MOP) allows precise manual control for the quick setup of origin positions and also conveniently displays position or program information to reduce setup times.




With the remote-control option, you can use the CNC control on your machine and macro programming to directly send indexing commands to the Quinte via the RS232 cable. There is no need to have separate programs on the machine and the Quinte. Lines of the macro program are automatically transferred from the machine through the RS232 cable to the Quinte, when the Quinte receives a start signal from the machine M-Code it will execute one line of the macro program. When the communication protocols and signals are set up correctly there should be no need for the machine operator to interact with the Quinte.
