Unusual work? No problem. | Kitagawa

Unusual work? No problem.

Kitagawa Europe has recently installed several specialist work holding solutions at a leading UK bearing manufacturer.   The complete system consists of S1552 hydraulic cylinders fitted with dual flow rotary unions and PW08 power wing chucks with custom top tooling. 

The S1552 open centre cylinder has a large though hole  that together with a dual flow rotary union allows for air and coolant feed tubes to be passed though the spindle assembly. 

The PW08 has a pullback action and jaw compensation for powerful gripping force and accurate location of parts.  Coolant wash and air censing are utilised on the top tooling to ensure effective swarf removal and parts are loaded correctly.  All top tooling parts were manufactured to high tolerances and balanced to eliminate vibration at high speed. 

Preassembly and testing was carried out at Kitagawa's headquarters in Wiltshire prior to shipment to guarantee a smooth onsite installation and allow the customer to commence machining as quickly as possible.

Kitagawa Europe offers one of the most comprehensive ranges of work holding and productivity solutions in the UK.  Drawing on more than 60 years chuck development and manufacturing experience  gives the ability to efficiently design, project manage and support custom contracts  not only in the UK but anywhere in the world.


Please feel free to ask and contact Kitagawa for further details.
