Machine Construction – High Quality, High Accuracy. Kitamura Mycenters® are constructed with the highest grade Meehanite Casting (GA50) for optimum damping capacity. The thick wall and ribbed, box-type construction of this material ensure that the bed, column, saddle, table and head stock components of the machine are free from distortions, at the same time, carrying high rigidity.
  • Kitamura Features. ROCK SOLID CASTINGS  1
    Rock Solid Castings = Rigidity. High quality Meehanite castings guarantee minimum yearly deformation, maintaining the highest levels of accuracy and offering the user longer life expectancy of the machine tool.
  • Kitamura Features. ROCK SOLID CASTINGS  2
    Horizontal bed casting with hand scraped contact surfaces and solid box ways. This construction yields massive overall machine weight which allows for the heaviest possible cuts while at the same time, ensuring accuracies of ±0.000078” Full Stroke/repeatability ±0.000039”.
  • Kitamura Features. ROCK SOLID CASTINGS  3
    Kitamura’s thick-wall and ribbed box way construction yields the benefits of higher rigidity with the ability to support high precision, heavy machining.
  • Kitamura Features. ROCK SOLID CASTINGS  4
    Solid column construction – 3-micron mirror surface finish roughness on each slide way for superb vibration absorption capabilities.
