The Vi40 features a symmetric bridge-type structure, resulting in ultra-high precision when making heavy cuts.  Single-piece high-grade cast iron construction, including the column and top beam, increases the rigidity enabling the heavy duty machining that is often required in mold manufacturing.

A 24,000-rpm, 40-taper direct-drive spindle offers a high degree of precision throughout the entire speed range.  To reduce thermal distortion and achieve the highest precision five-axis machining, including long production runs, the YBM Vi40 features a thermal distortion stabilizing system where the X-Y-Z axes and two rotational axes (B/C) are maintained to +/-0.2oC to shop ambient temperature.
