Making full use of KIWA’s experience, KIWA has eliminated all possible wasted space on the KH-4500kai. As a result the KH-4500kai incorporates one of the largest work envelopes in its class.

KIWA has also maintained its speed and agility with over 1G acceleration/deceleration on all axes. The rigidity has been greatly enhanced with the “stepped” base and column casting design. Keeping the traditions of KIWA design, the KH-4500kai is fully expandable both for the APC and ATC portions of the machine. These features are field installable.
