Five of the 14 machines at YCM Americas' double-deck booth (Tustin, CA; Booth S-8450)  focus on the company’s exclusive five axis machining technology and range from small trunion to larger double column bridge designs.  Also on display are YCM’s high torque horizontal machining centers for heavy duty horizontal machining to high speed horizontal machining. Its high performance vertical machining centers for use in job shops as well as the aerospace, automotive, medical and die/mold industries are also on the floor. Another highlight are YCM’s larger machines, such as the NH 800B HMC, DCV 2018A-5AX double column machine and TCV 3000A-5AX traveling column machine.

All of this technology is evidence that YCM pays very close attention to industry trends and requirements, including horizontal and five-axis machine tool technology that enables customers to eliminate multiple setups in their machining processes, saving time and costs.
