The KIWA KH-4100kai from Methods Machine Tools Inc. (Sudbury, MA) is a compact, four-axis horizontal CNC machining center. More aesthetically modern than its predecessor (the KH-4100) with new powder coating and paint scheme, it has new controls, new internal sheet metal placement, and wipers, which all contribute to improved planning, machining, and chip flow.
Outfitted with FANUC’s new 0i-MF Plus control, the KH-4100kai offers numerous customizable functions, a new user interface, as well as pallet and tool management screens. New internal sheet metal placement and machine way wipers keep chips from interfering with critical components and guide chips to the center trough, ensuring a pristine, debris-free environment.
Other benefits include simultaneous four-axis machining, a wide center trough in the machining area, and a unique coolant chip flow system.
The BIG-PLUS 40-taper spindle, backed by 20-horsepower and capable of running at 15,000 rotations per minute, guarantees rigidity and uniform cuts. A 60-tool automatic tool changer comes standard, giving operators versatile tooling options. Travel is 20.1”/ 510 millimeters on the X, Y, and Z axes.
