Absolute Machine Tools Inc.


Lorain, Ohio –Absolute Machine Tools, Inc., now the exclusive U.S. importer and distributor of EDM machines and supplies from Yougar M&T, Inc., introduced the Yougar YGS CNC Moving Head series and YGS ZNC Manual series of EDM drilling machines.

The design of the YGS CNC Moving Head series ensures smooth motion and stability superior to that of fixed-head, moving-table style EDM drills. An automatic guide changer (AGC) enables easy automatic drilling of holes of different depths and long, unattended operations. The machines offer up to 8 fully programmable axes, facilitating processing of complex manufacturing applications. Rotating brass or copper tubular electrodes from 0.1mm – 3.0mm (0.004” - 0.118”) diameter perform drilling, while a high-pressure pump provides adjustable through-spindle flushing from 0 - 750psi to maximize performance with any electrode size.

A 17” touchscreen PC display enables operators to manually enter drilling positions, or easily import them from a DXF file or wire EDM program file stored on an external source. USB or TCP/IP data transfer interfaces are standard. The built-in supply module for the dielectric system saves space and simplifies maintenance. Dielectric fluid is filtered from 3µm to 20µm via a standard replaceable paper filter cartridge.  An ION quality sensor and mixed bed ION exchange resin monitors clean water to maintain proper conductivity. Maximum workpiece weight is up to 1,100 lb. The machines support diverse rotary table manufacturers, tilting head (±45°), and multi-lingual operations.

The YGS ZNC series is comprised of economical high-speed EDM drilling machines that perform “start hole” drilling quickly and efficiently, with electrodes in diameters ranging from 0.1mm – 3.0mm (0.004” – 0.118”). Featuring a 10µm extended life filter, resistivity sensor, and ION exchange resin, the YGS ZNC series provides smooth reliable machining over long periods of time.
