Kitagawa Steady Rests are normally used for efficient machining of long shafts. Three rollers hold the work piece at points approx 120° apart. These rollers move such that they always inscribe concentric circles between them. This feature along with the internal compensating system prevents the dislocation of work piece centre under changing clamping pressures. This results in high centering accuracy. KEL steadies are made of high grade alloy steel and all parts are fully hardened to 60 HRC, and nitrided to be 100% corrosion free.
The entire range of Kitagawa Steady Rests are also available to be viewed individually.
