Sodick has launched JQ (Japan Quality), a new line of EDM wire consumables, consisting of uncoated brass wire that enables high cutting speeds. Produced in Japan, the wire is made by first melting own raw copper and zinc and analyzing the nascent mixture for optimal purity. Virgin wire is then drawn at a standardized size before being annealed and redrawn through special diamond dies which ensure a pristine surface. After reaching its final size, JQ wire is subjected to a battery of quality assurance tests, including laser roundness measurement, tensile strength testing, straightness inspection and microscopic surface inspection.
