Methods Machine Tools, Inc. introduces Yasda Precision Tools' YBM 640V3 three-axis CNC vertical jig borer, which provides high-speed, precision boring and milling operations for high-accuracy mold, die, and complex component manufacturing. According to Yasda, the new YBM 640V3 simplifies moldmaking in industries such as automotive, aerospace, defense, and more, as well as the production of electronic, optical, and other extremely complex components. The accuracy and rigidity of the YBM 640V3 virtually eliminates the need for hand polishing, claims the company. To minimize vibration during acceleration and deceleration, a reinforcement rib is integrated under the bridge. With a standard spindle speed of up to 24,000 rpm (30,000 rpm optional) and a 7/24 taper, No. 40 spindle taper hole, the YBM 640V3's machining efficiency is optimized by keeping the weight of the spindle head and saddle as low as possible.
