Yasda Precision Tools K.K., located in Okayama, Japan, is so serious about accuracy that they only use Yasda machines to build Yasda machines.
Yasda was founded in 1929 in a small factory in Osaka City, Japan consisting of just three people producing engine cylinder boring machines. In 1964, after changing their line of products from cylinder boring machines to machine tools, Yasda introduced the first horizontal fine boring milling machine, the Jig Master. Since then, Yasda has developed and manufactured over 60 different machines. Each model is built to be highly accurate and durable, and has evolved to be more multi-functional and more automated for ultimate productivity. Today, Yasda is committed to continuously improving their extensive lines of machines including CNC Jig Borers, 5-Axis Precision Centers and Micro Centers.
Yasda machines have advanced design features and robust guide ways mounted onto meticulously hand scraped surfaces for long-term precision, rigidity and thermal stability. Each model is highly accurate and durable, designed to be multi-functional and automated for optimal productivity. Yasda combines the accuracy and durability of their machining centers with the highly skilled craftsmanship of scrapers to achieve unmatched accuracies. Hand scraping is done on all key components including guideways, pallet top surfaces, and spindle housing mounting surfaces.
In order to ensure the utmost in quality and precision, Yasda uses primarily Yasda machines to build their own machine tools. Other quality machine tool builders also use Yasda machines to build their machine tools. Yasda machines undergo rigorous testing to ensure the perfection that Yasda demands.
Yasda’s mission is to satisfy their users around the world by familiarizing them with Yasda products and by offering the best technologies to meet their ever-changing and ever-growing needs, as quickly and efficiently as possible. Yasda consistently strives to make the world’s best machines using highly skilled engineers and craftsmen to produce the most accurate and reliable machines available, period. “We stand by our slogan: striving to be the best, not the biggest,” says Mr. Jakuto Yasuda, Yasda president. Committed to continuously adapting to the demands of the times, Yasda builds on lessons learned from experience over the years.
Vertical Machining Centers | Yasda
Vertical Machining Centers (VMCs), a machine shop staple, are milling machines that feature vertically oriented spindles that approach workpieces mounted on their table from above and commonly perform 3-axis machining operations. Milling is a machining process of using rotary cutters to remove metal from a workpiece.
5-Axis Machining Centers | Yasda
5-Axis Machining Centers have the ability to move a part or a tool on five different axes at the same time. These machining centers are able to rotate on two additional rotary axes, often identified as A and B, which in turn help the cutting tool approach the part from all directions. These axes are used to smoothly follow a contoured surface, making the 5-axis machine prevalent in the aerospace industry.
Horizontal Machining Centers | Yasda
Horizontal Machining Centers (HMCs) are milling machines that feature horizontally oriented spindles that rely on rotary cutters to remove metal from a workpiece. The horizontal design of HMC allows a two-pallet work changer to be incorporated into a space efficient machines for fast production.
Jig Borers | Yasda
Jig Borers are a precision machine tools, resembling a vertical milling machine, used to accurately enlarge existing holes and to bore precise holes at precise locations. Jig Borers can maintain high accuracy between multiple holes and or whole surfaces, and locating and drilling or boring holes in jigs.
Precision Centers | Yasda
Precision Centers are designed to ensure precision, accuracy, rigidity, reliability, and stability.
Micro Centers | Yasda
Micro Centers are state of the art high end machines ideal for ultra-high precision and high quality machining. Its symmetrical frame design offers high rigidity and stability, excellent for high quality surface finish.
