A YASDA YMC 430 at Applied Medical Technology

Medical Mold Manufacturer Realizes Surgical Precision with the YASDA YMC 430

When a medical device manufacturer wanted to bring plastic injection and silicone mold manufacturing in-house, tool and die manager David Gwaltney conducted meticulous research. He read facilities lists. He read machine reviews. He visited a machine shop in Pennsylvania. One brand of machine kept coming up again, again and again - YASDA. Gwaltney even saw the high-precision machining centers at a machine tool builder in Korea. "They had YASDAs doing all of their spindles and five-axis trunnion work, so all of their really high tolerance stuff they were building on YASDA machines, which I thought was pretty interesting," Gwaltney said. "Doing a little bit more research, I found out pretty much every machine tool builder has YASDAs in their factory building machine tools, that tells you something."
