Methods Machine Tools, Yasda Renew Strategic Partnership

(l-r) Dale Hedberg, Chief Operating Officer, Methods Machine Tools; Yasushi Kimura, President, Yasda Precision America Corporation

Methods Machine Tools, supplier of high-quality, high-precision CNC machine tools, automation and engineering services, has announced a new commercial agreement with Yasda Precision Tools K.K. that continues Methods' role as the single importer, distributor and service provider of Yasda's portfolio of precision machining centers in the United States.

The formal relationship between the two companies began in 2014, when Methods began importing Yasda's 3- and 5-axis lines, including the YBM vertical and horizontal series, YMC series and the PX30i and H40i Precision Centers.

"For nearly a decade, we have held the distinct privilege of offering Yasda's world-class machines in the U.S., directly and through our dealer network," said Dale Hedberg, COO at Methods. "The continuation of our partnership demonstrates the strength of our collaboration and focus on delivering Yasda's unrivaled class of machines, backed by the highest-quality service and parts fulfillment."

"As the most advanced and established machine importer in the U.S., Methods is the best partner to convey, supply and support our machining technologies for manufacturers throughout the country," said Yasushi Kimura, President of Yasda Precision America Corporation. "Our machine designs and unique manufacturing processes provide the highest level of accuracy and stability to satisfy demand for the tightest precision across all industries. Additionally, with growing needs for automation, Methods' engineering capabilities expand the possibilities customers can achieve when working with Yasda and Methods."

"Yasda precision centers, most commonly found in aerospace, micro-milling and die/mold facilities, are known for having the highest CNC machining accuracy in the industry," said a spokesperson. "Capable of regularly achieving accuracies of 0.001 mm and submicron accuracy in unique applications, Methods showcases Yasda machining centers at its one-of-a-kind Precision Center located in Acton, MA."

"Yasda's attention to geometric assembly perfection and thermal stability, combined with exceptional rigidity and spindle capability, make Yasda the premier machine tool builder in the world," said Kevin Lichtenberg, Methods' Product Manager for Yasda. Whether a shop requires the tightest tolerances for aerospace, medical or semiconductor manufacturing parts or for complex mold shapes, my guidance to manufacturers looking to separate from their competition is that the precision, market-leading features and reliability of Yasda will increase their workpiece quality, reduce secondary processes and-most importantly-ultimately reduce productions costs."
