Latest Servo Technology

The Servo System dramatically improves responsiveness in servo detection. It offers 2 times faster machining speeds compared with previous models.

Micro-Step Servo

The K1C small hole drill is equipped with the Micro-Step Servo which maintains stable machining at all times.


The K Series features energy-saving designs and technologies. Compared to conventional Hole Drillers, the K Series can reduce average energy consumption by up to 60%.

Ergonomically Friendly

The K1C is carefully designed to consider easy operation for operators. The operation panel is located at the front of the machine. The counter display is at the height of the operators view. The machine also comes with a tool tray for placing tools, dies and the like.
