In front of me I have a small Kira brochure in Dutch from the
Dutch Kira distributor (fax +31 347 329337).

A few features:
KIRA Corp is indeed Japanese
The machine is called KIRA KSC-50
It is based on the LOM principle, however
- it uses a knife (cutting plotter)
- it uses plain paper: the machine will distribute glue where
  needed and then apply a hot press to harden
Max model dim 400 x 280 x 300 mm
Layer thickness 0.1 mm
Accuracy 0.2 mm

(all features from brochure only)

The machine looks like a large photocopier
