Sodick’s AG600LH wire EDM features X-, Y- and Z-axis travel of 23.7" × 15.8" × 20" to accommodate large parts and tall workpieces. The machine also offers linear motors on the X, Y, U and V axes to maximize speeds with no backlash or lost motion, the company says.
Other features include glass-scale feedback; Super Jet annealing, high-speed automatic wire threading; ceramic components; and an energy-saving circuit for decreased energy use compared to conventional EDMs.
