The YBM-Vi40 jig borer from Yasda Precision America features five-axis machining technology that is capable of high-precision die and mold machining of extremely hard materials in complicated shapes. According to the company, when comparing general three-axis machining to index five-axis machining of an R1 ball end mill for finishing, the YBM-Vi40 reduced machining time to about one-fifth. The ability to tilt the workpiece with the jig borer reduces cutter length requirements. Thanks to the shorter tool length, the YBM-Vi40 cut feed rate is 2000 mm (78.7 in) per minute in contrast to the 400 mm (15.7 in) per minute with a three-axis machine. Surface roughness is Ra 0.25 µm (9.84 µin) vs. Ra 0.90 µm (35.4 µin).
