Kitagawa Northtech Introduces New Series of Grinding Steady Rests for Automotive and Other Complex Grinding Applications

Grinding Steady Rests from Kitagawa NorthTech Features a Broad Range of Gripping Diameters for Crankshaft, Camshaft Grinding and other Purpose Specific Applications

Schaumburg, IL – June 12, 2017 – The new series of Grinding Steady Rests from Kitagawa NorthTech feature two models supported with turnkey design, build and installation capabilities dedicated to Grinding applications. The new fully retracting KRGU Grind Steady Rests and GHS Grind Steady Rests are suitable for Camshafts/Crankshafts and other Cylindrical applications where accuracy and repeatability are essential.

Steady rests are a critical requirement for the grinding of camshafts, crankshafts and other relative geometries. When the piece length increases relative to the diameter it becomes unstable and will deflect under the grind load. The use of Kitagawa NorthTech Grind Steady Rests will eliminate the problems of part deflection, grind surface finish and centering accuracy.

This series is specially designed for crank shaft grinding to accommodate the maximum eccentric throw and journal diameter of crank shafts. Custom made designs are available to accommodate automated loading.  Available in standard gripping diameters from 2.75” (70 mm) to 7.5” (190 mm).
