Kitagawa-NorthTech, Inc. applies combined technical expertise to offer customers more advanced application solutions and enhance our offerings to high volume manufacturers. We also draw on advanced global engineering capabilities, using both the resources of Kitagawa Iron Works in Japan and Kitagawa-NorthTech, Inc. in the United States.
What We Do: We have a full staff of design engineers to offer a high level of engineering capability. Our philosophy is to offer custom top tooling (jaws, locators etc…) designed to work with an “out of the box” production manufactured chuck. Our engineers perform a full project review with the customer to get an in depth understanding of their application. After the review the engineer is able to provide a concept drawing to discuss with the customer. Once the final concept is agreed on by the customer detail designs are completed and production begun.
Engineering: Our engineers utilize advanced 3D design software, NX 6, that offers the ability to do complex engineered solutions. From calculating part deformation to full 3D design we have the latest technology to help ensure a successful and productive solution. By combining experience and the right tools we can offer a complete turnkey solution for the most demanding applications.
