History



YASDA has been constantly tackling the development of precision machining technology since its foundation and entrance into the machine tool building industry with the introduction of the “Jig master”horizontal boring & milling machine in 1964.
In 1966 our development of the horizontal machining center caught the attention of fellow builders as the very first of its kind in Japan.
Since then, with a highly precise machining area as the target, YASDA has been steadily expanding as a maker of durable, high-precision machining centers.
Now, YASDA’s products are competitively positioned with those of world’s leading makers and they are relied heavily upon by leading manufacturers.
