Kitamura Double Column Machining Centers Larger parts require larger capacity and increased rigidity in order to support heavier table loads. Kitamura’s Bridgecenter Double Column Machining Centers are designed for extreme cutting capacity, offering the benefits of solid box way construction, high speed/high torque spindle options, spacious work envelopes, and a patented double column bridge type design. Standard linear scale feedback and #40 and #50 taper spindle configurations make these machines ideal for the mold industry where high levels of accuracy are needed in roughing & finishing large cavities and cores.
