ADDITIONAL ELEMENTS OF GE SERIES EXCELLENCE

Extruded Aluminum Action Rail
Extruded Aluminum Action Rail
Several elements of the action rail contribute to proper hammer alignment, a key factor in the creation of exceptional tone and touch.
  • Extrusion – The "extrusion" process creates an action rail that is both strong and consistent.
  • Stability – The rail is permanently locked in place and supported by a minimum of five (5) die-cast action brackets.
  • Dual Beam Rail Design – An "F-shaped, dual-beam" design provides rigidity to maintain proper hammer position and alignment.
  • Serrated Surface – The ridges along the rail surface provide necessary friction to hold the hammer flanges in place and preserve hammer alignment.
  • Insuliner – The exclusive Insuliner maintains hammer alignment by holding the hammer flanges in place at the critical end point.
Steel Reinforced Keyslip
Steel Reinforced, Anti-Warp Keyslip
The GE Series keyslips are reinforced with a heavy-gauge steel inside liner that prevents warping or bending in any direction. Keys move freely with virtually no possibility of rubbing or sticking against the inside of the keyslip.
Reinforced Keybed
Steel Reinforced Keybed
The GM Series keybeds are made of extremely strong, laminated hardwoods. Kawai also reinforces each keybed with an underside steel support beam for maximum stability.
Laminated Beams
Fully Laminated Beams
The beams are made of select hardwood laminates, glued together under pressure, making them virtually isotropic (equally strong in all directions) and impervious to weather changes and warpage. Our LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber) construction method creates beams that are many times stronger than ones made of solid wood.
ISO 1400`
Environmental Responsibility
In 1997, Kawai’s Ryuyo Grand Piano facility became the first manufacturing plant in the piano industry to receive ISO 14001, the world’s foremost certification for excellence in environmental management. In 1998, Kawai was privileged to receive a second ISO 14001 certification recognizing exceptional achievement in re-forestation, energy conservation, waste reduction and natural resource preservation at our highly respected Maisaka Upright Piano Factory. In 1999, Kawai made history for a third time when ISO 14001 certification was awarded to our Märchen Digital Piano Facility. This unceasing pursuit of environmental excellence is our way of showing that we care about our world... and you.
