Despite its space-saving footprint, the three-axis Yasda YBM 9150 CNC jig borer, available from Methods Machine Tools, features a large work envelope and XYZ-axis travel of 61" × 37" × 18" (1,500 × 900 × 540 mm), making it well-suited for applications such as mold bases. With a symmetrical bridge structure, three-point machine base and rigid design, the machine can handle a range of demanding materials. Through-hardened box guideways contribute to its rigidity.

Like other Yasda machines, the YBM 9150 features a thermal distortion stabilization system that isolates the spindle head, saddle unit and top of the bridge from thermal expansion during machining. A direct-drive, self-adjusting spindle preload and optical scale feedback on X, Y and Z axes provide precision positioning, and curvic coupling for pallet clamping also enhances precision machining. For maximum accuracy, the minimum positioning input/ output increment is 0.0001 mm.

The machine comes standard with two pallets, a 100-24,000-rpm Big Plus 40-taper spindle, a 30-capacity tool magazine, twin spiral chip augers, a user-friendly FANUC 31-B5 10.4" color LCD control and 200 registerable programs. Options include a choice of probing systems, high-torque or high-speed spindles, automatic pallet changers, and as many as five preload stations.
