Depth and availability of precision workholding solutions is critical to help customers maintain stable throughput and productivity. To ensure customers can acquire the appropriate workholding for their needs, Kitagawa-NorthTech is constantly adding new products to meet every need. Recently, Kitagawa-NorthTech added five new high precision steady rests to their fleet of workholding offerings:  GHS Series, FRUN Series, VGHS Series, HL80130 and the HS160SAL.

• GHS steady rests exhibit high accuracy clamping and are ideal for standard grinding applications such as cylinder, camshaft and camlobe.
• FRUN steady rests are fully sealed and command precision and performance. FRUN’s are compact in size and allows for easy mounting on flat or slant bed lathes.
• The VGHS series helps stabilize cylinders and camshafts during grinding. This model’s innovative design features a top arm that fully opens for loading components to the machine center. This opening can be identified by a sensor integrated within the steady.
• HL80130 and HS160SAL are new heavy duty steady rests that exhibit superior control while stabilizing components from ten to forty tons.

The addition of these new models allows Kitagawa-NorthTech to provide machine shops with one of the most robust steady rest selections in the market. To learn more visit
