Kitagawa will be displaying the next generation of workholding products at this year’s EMO exhibition in Hannover. Whether it is autonomy, accuracy or cost-effective solutions, Kitagawa have the answer for all of your work holding requirements!

Some of the latest products on display at this year’s EMO exhibition are described below:

Lights out machining

Introducing the Kitagawa AJC system (Automatic jaw change) We will be demonstrating the future of all machining workshops. The AJC will allow you to work autonomously regardless of batch size! We will have a live demonstration with the use of a robot loader, CK250 NCRT and AJC system. For a demonstration video please click here.

Accuracy without the price tag 

Kitagawa have the pleasure of introducing the BR Series. The new standard” - This chuck is capable of maintaining a repeatability of 0.01mm T.I.R or less after changing jaws, eliminating the need to re-form jaws. This accuracy is achieved by simply installing the special “Tnut-Plus” to the BR chuck. Turn harder and faster with a clamping force increase of 10-15% at maximum speed.  Fully interchangeable with the B200, BB200 and QJR series, this chuck is bound to become an industry leader! – Now stocked un Europe! For a demonstration video please click here.

Strong and Compact

The NEW MK Series, Kitagawa’s latest 4thaxis rotary table. This rotary table has 40% higher clamping torque than its predecessor, highest driving torque in class and a new compact design, all giving increased workpiece capability. – Now stocked un Europe! For a demonstration video please click here.

Redefining the Standard

Kitagawa Europe collet chucks have been under the microscope this year. We have completely re-designed the range. We are introducing the new DKF42, DKF52, DKF65 and DKF80 fixed length collet chucks.  Compatible with popular quick-change collet clamping heads and optional collet changing device for quick and easy changeover. The new range have undergone a huge weight loss program, ensuring maximum room for your workpiece and turret!


The Promano range of grippers have seen huge developments in recent years. Promano is a high specification, well-balanced gripper. The compact body provides a stable gripping force and high repeatability. With a huge selection of grippers in the range Kitagawa are sure to have your specific requirements taken care of!

Swift Klamp

One of Kitagawa Europe’s latest products - Swift Klamp is a workholding system specifically designed to be used on 5-axis machining centres but can also be used on vertical machining centres with or without a 4th or 5th Axis rotary table. It is also suitable for horizontal machining centres as well. The system primarily utilizes an HSK interface for securing different types of workholders. We will have a live demonstration with the use of a robot loader and a 4thaxis rotary table (MK200)

These are just a few of many fantastic products on display at this year’s EMO exhibition.
